I had an amazing last couple of days at the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities English and Writing Conference! I heard tons of presentations from faculty across the state about everything from publishing your work in journals, to using a theme in your freshman writing course, to different ways to approach developmental writing. My own presentation went exceedingly well! It was aptly titled "Why Do I Need Freshman Comp? I'm a Theater Major!", and had a decent amount of people attending, some with questions at the end! Overall it was a great experience, and I'm already looking forward to next year's conference, and trying to decide what possibly to present on!
While there, I was able to work on a lot of knitting, even finishing up a project! I got about halfway done with the Cupcake hat, and this morning I put the finishing touches on the Studio Mitts!
Pattern: Susie's Reading Mitts, available on Ravelry for free!
Yarn: Cascade 220 Paints in 9871 colorway- a great mix of purples and red-purples!
Needles: Size 6 Bamboo, though next time I'm going down to at least size 5.
Time Period: March 16th-March 31st
Gift/Barter: Gift for Cassie, who helps run the office down at Stacey's Dance Studio. She spends a lot of time on the computer and needs something to keep her hands warm in the winter! I'll be giving these to her at the recital in June :)
Worst Part: I think the only thing I'd change would be the needles- Cassie has bigger hands than me, so these will probably fit her just fine, but for future projects I'll go down a needle size.
More dive classes this afternoon after work, then off to (FINALLY) see The Hunger Games tonight!
