Finally I can post FO pics of my Hundertwasser socks and my Opal caterpillar “at work” socks that I only work on at lunch and during boring meetings at work. Even though I finished these last weekend, I am just now posting pics. Have I been busy? No…not really. Have I been scattered? YES.. that would be more accurate.
Not that life is exceedingly stressful right now but we are undergoing some changes here at Casa Larj that have been throwing me off. Of couse first and foremost are the changes in Mr. Larj’s work situation. He’s still getting a fair amount of hours in at his contingent printing job. He even got his first check the other day… Woo Hoo!!! There is still talk of him getting hired on full time, possibly after the first of the year. Right now however, he’s working a pretty uneven schedule and I think it’s got everyone sort of off kilter including the Dalmatian who has some serious separation anxiety issues. I have come home twice in the last couple of weeks to find a “prezzie” on my living room rug where Mr. Dog apparently couldn’t handle the stress of being left alone and decided to make a deposit. All I can say it that the carpet cleaner was one of our better investments.
I hope everyone had a good Turkey day. I caught the bug that’s been going around at work for the last couple of months at work (as soon as people started getting flu shots?) and was feeling punk. So we stayed in and Mr. Larj did all the cooking. I called Mom Larj and of course she told me to STAY HOME if I was sick because she didn’t want it!
As for knitting, I’ve started this, but I’m using a thick and thin yarn and it’s curling like mad. I was thinking of re-starting it using a regular worsted weight yarn and casting on a few extra stitches. I’m undecided. Of course I am procrastinating on starting some other projects, notoriously the Mr. Greenjeans cardigan. Maybe if I do my gauge swatches it’ll make the idea of starting a little more concrete in my abstract brain.
Here’s a little clarification for anyone who’s wondered about my nickname! Everyone have a great week!!
