Life is excellent, though busy. I took my ORELA test last Saturday, and I'm pretty sure I passed all the sections, including the math and science! Yay!

Tonight, I am teaching a class on medieval knitting. I believe that I am all prepared. Still, wish me luck! It should be interesting.

More updates later. I am not sufficiently caffeinated to be coherent.

Medieval knitting is much like modern knitting in the round. You just knit along from one needle to the other, making a tube. They used this technique to make pouches, gloves, mittens, and socks. Also trunkhose, but whoever made a full set of trunkhose by knitting it out of silk at a very fine gauge was insane.

I'd wish you luck, but having seen your socks you'll do just fine!
Good luck anyway.
