So the homeschooling year starts on Monday, but we've been fielding all sorts of setbacks as the day gets closer. The youngest child is all set and ready to go, but the oldest child still hasn't gotten her class materials and we've had various account issues. The teacher is working on it all, but we've had no progress on resolutions thus far. All of this has led to me being way more stressed out than I like to be. Stressed out also equals distracted and distracted equals unproductive. I guess what I'm trying to say is, it's a miracle I managed to spend any time make lace yesterday at all.

I got a few more rows created in what I'm now calling the Armenian lace shawl experiment. It's about 9 inches across right now. I've no set end length, but I think it's a long way off. The biggest challenge now is trying to keep the top edge straight as I'm really making up the rules of reversing work right now. I'll likely end off by working a row along the top edge anyway. Of course I have no idea how long from now that will be, but I suppose this project will work well as a, between other pieces, time killer, so it could be months.

I know the problem, I'm trying to crochet a semicircle and struggling to keep the top edge straight. Hope you get your school issues sorted soon.
