Hello everyone, A nice day here in my household. I had the second interview this morning – I am not sure it is going to work. The person was ten minutes late to the interview. The office was not even open when I arrived! It did not set a very good tone. Kyle made it safely to Boston – that is good, I did not sleep well last night thinking about him driving through the night.
Have a great afternoon,

Hello! It is knitting day at Lizzie Ann’s!! Two whole hours of knitting time with some great women! Knitting AND conversation – wow! Hmmm, one would hope that I find a job and SOON, huh? I wanted to show you all the completed camellia from Noni – www.nonibags.com. I think it turned out amazingly! I am excited to finish the second one I am working on for my derby hat. I also am going to do some spider chrysanthemums for a friends hat.
Cute, huh? The “stamens” are achieved by using Crystal Palace Fizz, held together with the two strands of Lamb’s Pride Worsted – the pattern calls for Cascade 220, but I had this in my stash.
Today is Maundy Thursday and we are singing tonight in church – tomorrow morning – second interview, keep your fingers crossed for me.
Have a great day!
Update from Open Knitting – A woman who has a gallery in Douglas wants to sell my bags in her shop. Get paid for knitting? Can life get better than that??? Also, I am going to be teaching some classes at Lizzie Ann’s! It is Knitting Zen!! Have a great evening!

Well, here is my version of the Wobbly Circles Tote from IK. It was my first try at intarsia! I used Lamb’s Pride Bulky – Persian Peacock, Pistachio, Wild Violet, Rust, and Kiwi. I wish I would have known about the KAL – but I know where to look for them now! I am improving both my knitting and internet skills! All knitting and no work makes Kat crazy!

Hello everyone! It is a good day to sit and knit – no garden work for me today it this wet weather. It was 78 out yesterday, but alas – today it is a mere 54. Still, spring is working on springing here – as Easter approaches we are supposed to climb back into the upper 60’s/low 70’s. I have some pictures to post, but I need my teenage son – Sam – to help me. Look for them later on tonight. I have a second interview on Friday morning – I keep your fingers crossed for me! I have one camellia done and felted, working on a second one! Have a great Wednesday all!

Happy Monday All! Kids are back from Spring Break with their dad – life is back to normal! I finished my intarsia bag! It is all felted and looks so cute. I discovered Noni bags this weekend! Check them out at www.nonibags.com They are so awesome – I am currently working on the felted camelia flowers for my hat to wear to the Kentucky Derby party at Tom and Michelle’s home. I had an interview on Friday and another interview today – this is promising, I hope. While it is wonderful to have some time off to knit, unless I start selling what I knit (perish the thought!!) I need to find a job! Have a great Monday everyone!
