Anyway, I am now officially unemployed. Friday went off without too many tears and we were out of there by 10:20. I said good-bye to downtown with a wave. I met 2 knitsibs from my Wed knit group for lunch and we actually sat outside. It was a beautiful mid to upper 70's and the sun was bright. Can you believe that we were able to sit outside in mid-November? Does that mean that we will have a mild winter and no bugs will die? which in turn means a horribly hot summer with lots of bugs? Who the heck knows, the weathermen sure don't. I digress, sorry. I do have an interview on Monday, and if nothing else, it will give me some interviewing practice again.
Meanwhile, my task list for my time off is growing. I know I want to get some knitting done, but I also want to do some sewing, which means I need to get in my hobby room and finish cleaning my sewing table off so that I can get to my sewing machine.
I do have some updates on my knitting projects. No FO's yet, but I'm getting close on a couple. I cast-on for the Baktus a little while back and yesterday got to the decreasing part. It's coming along nicely and it's fun to knit. The yarn is Knit One Crochet Too Crock-o-Dye sock yarn on size US4 needles. I like the way it's striping too.
A finished project is the Storm Cloud Shawlette #1. The pattern calls for a fingering yarn for the shawlette and I thought I would use a chunkier yarn and get a shawl size. It worked and I love it. I get lots of compliments on it. I used South American Cotton Space Dyed from Punta Yarns on size US10.75 needles.
