.The kittens have found my knitting projects! Very cozy.

Other than being very cute, and a constant source of amusement, the kittens have provided me with multiple writing lessons for my second graders. They especially liked the most recent episode of an "unfolding story" (you put a story in your fist, unfold the thumb for the beginning, the fingers for the details and the pinkie for the ending, my explanation of a lesson from Lucy Calkins) about the kittens escaping from the large box they had been living in.

I'm working on my first cabled project, a top down sweater from Cabin Fever. It's taking a long time. I'm used to watching TV while I knit.
