I decided to give Flower Basket another good, long soak, but this time in a tea bath. I didn't like the boring vanilla of it all! I unpinned her last night, and brought her to work, so I could get some of my students to photograph her for me. I actually don't own any students, I think it's illegal or something, but I consider them mine. Miss Lesli gets the credit for the photography, and Miss Kristin is the model. They said they were goofing around, but I couldn't believe it when I saw the pictures. They're great! And no, they don't knit, and as far as I know, they've never seen a knitting mag. Of course, they are Performing Arts students, so I guess creativity is second nature. The talent doesn't stop there - oh no - Miss Kristin makes a mean creme brulee (torched it right in my office), and sang the national anthem at the baseball game last week. Miss Lesli is a National Honors scholar (from the frozen white north) who switched her major from genetics to Performing Arts the first week of school. I swear I could hear her mother saying, "And what kind of job can you get with that degree?", after being revived with smelling salts. Looks like photography might be a good choice. I think from now on I'm just gonna send them out with my finished objects and the camera and see what they come up with. And get this - they're freshmen. That means I have at least another 3 years of them! I had better get busy with the knitting!
