Keeping my fingers crossed for Mr. Larj. We are hoping that the contingent position that he’s been working at for the last few weeks will eventually turn in to full time. He’s had several of the employees ask him if he’s been offered full time yet. I would assume that this means that he’s a good fit and that they want him to stay on. I’m hopeful….
Had a really good time when my sister Gus was here. We hit some LYS’s and ate too much. It was nice having her here. I tried to talk her in to getting her own Etsy store for her felted bags. Not sure if she’s going to go for it. I think she’s a little intimidated by the process of setting up PayPal and posting her work online.
As for the knitting front, I have started a pair of garter rib socks from the Sensational Knitted Socks book using Opal Hundertwasser. I love the randomness of the colorway. I originally started with a busier pattern but it didn’t do the color changes justice so I simplified it and decided to use a garter rib pattern. Much better.
This is one of those rare weekends where I really don’t have a lot on my plate. I’m hoping to keep it that way. I need to catch up on a few things and update my Etsy shop, which has picked up lately. Last night my big accomplishments were cleaning the bathroom and bathing the dog. He no longer smells like a vacuum cleaner! I’m off tomorrow so more minor chores to catch up on but I think I can get some knitting in too, maybe even start a couple new projects as well.
Everyone, have a great week.
