I'm still knitting on my Livingstone cardigan, but progress is painfully slow. I've only done about half of the right front. It's not that it's hard (really quite easy actually, and the rows are short), but I just don't seem to sit and knit very much.
Some colleagues and I have been invited to present at a conference Feb 13 and 14. It's a significant invitation on several levels. The conference is a provincial one, which will attract people from all over Alberta. The invitation came from our area director. The Chief Superintendent of Schools for our school district will be introducing us (and we are the only presentation she is doing that for). There will be many eyes on us. It's a very exciting opportunity, but I'm starting to get nervous. We've all been working hard developing this presentation. I must have a couple of hundred hours into the development of an updated data collection system to collect and report on assessment results for the whole school (580 students, assessed with several tools, multiple times in the year). My partner has collected hours of video footage and still photos and used them to create 3 video clips. Another partner has collated all of our information, beliefs, videos, images and ideas into a themed and branded powerpoint presentation. And our fearless leader has had the unenviable task of keeping the enthusiasm and panic in balance, and of keeping us all moving forward with a coherent vision. The thing is, I could talk, by myself, for a half a day about this stuff. The four of us have a 50 minute hour.
Yikes, work life has been pretty intense. No wonder I haven't made much progress on my sweater. It's Sunday today though, so I'm going to stop typing, and start knitting, and we'll see if I can finish this front anyway.
