Oh, wait, I HAVE ONE!!!! Yes, I finally have an income. I am now working at Barnes and Noble, which is just a little less dangerous than working in a yarn shop. It's a fun icome and I am glad that I can finally have one of those....not that being a dancing monkey-slave (chemistry grad student) wasn't a blast. My only slight frustration is that now I actually have to dress the part. For those not in the know, as a grad student I was lucky to go to school in pants that didn't have chemical holes in them.
Speaking of reading....and it being Wednesday....I've been
Watching....wait for the rental........
And here is what I have been WiP-ing:These are Squares 6-9 of my Larger than Life Bag. Yes, I did the first 5 in a day and these 4 in a week. I have a reason, but that's for later.
I got into a slight finishing kick, so I WiP-ed these out, which are now my travelling sock:These would be my January socks from Socktopia. I got a little distgruntled with them and they got put in time-out for a while. They are now in my purse and have become my travelling knitting. I have about 1.5" left before I start decreasing for the toe and they will be done.
And then I get to cast-on...and here I need some help. I have caught the knitting disease known as Ravelry. This has caused me to come down with a HUGE influx of ideas of projects that I must complete. I have narrowed my next sock project down to 2: Hedera and Monkey. Of course, these have been on my list, but they drastically moved to the head of the line when I saw all of the Monkeys done in Lorna's Laces and Tasha's Hederas in Claudia Handpaint.
Not to worry, these WILL EVENTUALLY get done, but I am having trouble deciding which one first. Here are some choices:
For Monkey:Lorna's Laces Shepard Sock in (L-R) Argyle, Flames, Daffodil, Watercolor, and Amish.
For Hedera,Claudia Handpaint in (T-B) Purple Earth, Chocolate Cherry, and Ocean Depth.
Please leave a comment with a suggestion. You know I can't make a decision by myself! :-P
