Hello Everyone. There is great excitement here at The Home For The Unemployed! This is the last Monday of unemployment!
Can you hardly stand it?!?
That’s right, next week Monday I will be sitting in orientation at my new job!
So, this week I will be a woman on a mission.
There is laundry to do.
There is cleaning to do. (Okay, maybe my version of cleaning is different than yours, but I will endeavor to get a bit done anyways!)
There is knitting to do.
And more knitting to do.
And maybe even a bit more knitting to do.
Holy cow that is a lot of knitting.
My poor knitting needles are going to have a shock to their system next week. They are going to be languishing around with unfinished projects hanging off them. They are going to find themselves sad, lonely, and wondering where I went! So, this week I am going to work like a fiend to try and finish up a few projects.
Just to update you on where my knitting projects stand – I am to the crown decreases on Gretel. Hopefully this will be off my needles today! I am still plugging away at the Hemlock Ring blanket, I have 2 and a half skeins of yarn left. I have lots more rounds to do. I am not sure that I have enough yarn to finish. Yeah, just ducky, huh? Not sure how that saga will end – but I will keep you posted! Then there are my Super Secret May Day Swap socks – I am heading down to the library today to enlarge the pattern. I am hoping that will help. I am having a hard time getting in the flow of this pattern. I love the yarn, I mean, what is not to love about STR? This stuff is divine. Heavenly. I just need to get my brain wrapped around all the little twists and turns of the chart and do some memorization. Problem is, there is lots to memorize – and it is minuscule. Not saying I need reading glasses or anything – really, I have tried and they give me a headache! But, there are many figures to memorize – many! Lots of going back and forth between the chart and the key. Slow knitting people. Slow! Anyways, I am hoping that enlarging will help enormously! There are a few other projects, but they are not in the “get done or else” category.
So, I am off to clean up a bit and get to knitting.
Have a good one all!
