Living up to the title

In true headless chicken fashion, I've been running around in circles this week. There's work, of course, complete with huge piles of papers I haven't graded. Then there's knitting. Since I'm teaching the bat shawl class at Pacific Fabrics, they needed a sample. They don't carry the yarn I used for the book's shawl, so I cranked out another sample in La Gran Mohair, which they do carry, so I could figure the yardage for that yarn. I finished knitting the shawl body at 1:00 am, then knit the choker this morning. I bought a button and sewed it on at the store, handed over the shawl, and then ran off to Bernina for sales floor training. I still need to finish making messenger bag samples for Bernina, but there are those pesky papers, and committees, and other worky stuff. Aargh.

So I don't have any fun pictures or new projects to show you, since the sample shawl went straight to the store without passing go or collecting $200 or any of that. Also, it's gray and dreary here. (That's pretty much unrelated to the previous statement, but is related to a certain lack of fun in the atmosphere.)
