Well, Thanksgiving is soon upon us. For me, it means my parents visiting me in New Jersey and eating in a restaurant but it is Thanksgiving all the same.

After Thanksgiving, I will be completing the Yarn Craft Council's certified instructors program at FIT which I am so excited about! I am hoping it will give me more inspiration to create my own patterns and make me a better teacher for my middle school knitters.

Alas, the cold season is upon us, which means I need to think of more warm knits to keep me and everyone else warm!

Felt Autumn Garland

 While I was home in Ohio during the NYC hurricane, I used some of my time to create this festive felt garland. It is super inexpensive to make, all you need are stencils to cut out the shapes and embroidery thread to sew the details. It does take several hours to complete, especially with all the cutting and sewing. (I think is took me around 15 hours, no joke!) But it is worth it in the end, especially if you need a fun and inexpensive way to decorate your apartment that expresses your creativity!

Power Outages

Well, it seems as though things are moving along in the New York/New Jersey area but it is still a challenge. I am still in Ohio but my roommates in New Jersey were still without power and gas as of yesterday. According to PSE&G, part of the substation was underwater and they need to dry it out before they can re-establish power.

I am grateful that I was out of the state when all this happened but I realized that I need to think about what I would do if this happened again. I am going to start putting together a food rations kit with nonperishable food and water when I return to New Jersey. I am a bit nervous about returning but hopefully things will be more in order at the beginning of next week.
