Well, these are the lovely gems that Judy Becker sent me! Are they not gorgeous??? As soon as I have finished my "Widdershins" and the socks from "Greetings from the Knit Cafe" I am going to cast these on using the "Jaywalker" pattern! Again - a HUGE thanks to Judy Becker - creator of the "Magic Loop Cast-On". Judy and her blog can be found here - http://www.persistentillusion.com/blogblog/index.php. You should check our her blog and let her know that you are a Yarn Collector like the rest of us!
I cannot believe it is Thursday - it has been a LONG week. I have started working another job, a part time position at Chico's to supplement my full time job at Heartwell. I also had high school orientation for Heidi and Sam this week, of course the school in it's infinite wisdom determined that these orientations could not happen concurrently - so I had to take off 2 afternoon's to stand in lines! I have been working early to make up for the afternoon's off. I really could use a weekend to sleep and knit to get back to the center!
I have a light at the end of the flood tunnel though - the carpenter/handy man is coming on Saturday to remove the distroyed vanity and replace it with the new one and - drum roll, please - the carpeting and vinyl will be installed on Monday and Tuesday of next week!! This is a joy beyond belief - my children will be back in their rooms for the start of school - no more 'camping' in the living room!
Well, I have laundry to do and I would like to sit down and KNIT tonight! Have a great evening everyone!
