So, I started another new knitting project. It's Elisa's nest tote from the Purl Soho Bee website. I'm using Allhemp yarn for it in a light gray. I'm excited about it, but still have my baby blanket and Flicca to finish. I think I've been working on my first Flicca sleeve for about 2 months! As long as it's done by winter!
Our dossier for the adoption is SO close to being done. I'm really hoping everything from our end will be done this week. We'll most likely just be waiting for our I-171H. Atleast the fingerprinting for that has already been completed. We're just still trying to get the final home study report reviewed and sent to INS. We have a notary coming to our house (my friend's sister- so nice!) on Wednesday to get most of our stuff notarized. I was hoping to have it all done before we went back to teaching in August so we could just drive the papers to Sacramento to get apostilled instead of mailing them, but we'll probably just have to mail them. It's too hard to have to miss work right at the beginning of the school year.
I've also been going into to work a ton this summer. I love having my classroom organized and ready to go, and since I will be visiting my family in New Jersey the week before school starts, I need to have it all ready. This is definitely a busy week. I feel like I haven't had hardly any days to relax and knit and think of nothing. Hopefully next week. Except I'm always saying that!
Once I get this bag knitted a bit further, I'll get a picture posted.
