No Pics But Some News

Okay so rather than be a bad blogger YET AGAIN, I decided to post without pics. Forgive me, I'll add some new ones later.

Firsts, I did find a new job. I'm the newest Web Developer at a benefits billing company downtown. I started on Wednesday and it's all that new person stuff. You know, making sure you have all the right access, loading your software, and learning the ropes. I did make sure I stopped into Ewe Can Knit on Friday to knit during lunch. They were all impressed with the Apres Surf Hoodie. I'm just before the division of front and back.

I'm also finishing the second Indecisive Sock for testing my written pattern. They are turning out beautifully. I'm also working the biasing into the pattern. This is my trolley knitting. Since I now work downtown, I get to take the trolley to work. Even better with the gas prices.

The Rainbow Bright is still chugging away. I ripped it back all the way to the pink star and reworked to have 6 rows of each color instead of 4. The previous version just wasn't going to work out large enough. I'm now on the 3rd row of blue. So pretty much where I left off in my previous post.

I've put both Rainbow Bright and Apres Surf on hold though. I'm focusing on finishing the second Indecisive and my second Tulip,for my niece. Her birthday is on the 12th and I'm close enough that it's silly for me not to finish it. I've got the left front border, I cord bind-off of the body, and partial sleeves. I think I should finish it either tomorrow or Wednesday. Then I'm going to focus on Rainbow Bright as my "at home" project. Travel will be Indecisive Sock.

After Indecisive though, I'm debating patterns to use to exploit my July shipment of Vesper Yarn. ABSOLUTELY beautiful. Heather's right, every time I open the package, this is what I hope for when I get any club shipment. I think the only one from Blue Moon that has come close is the most recent colorway of Goody,Goody. Beautiful rainbow pastel, perfect for babies.

Okay so this week's assignment(should I wish to accept it): Pictures. This blog will self destruct in 10 seconds....
