Scratch That

Perhaps I (we) was a bit too hasty. Needless to say, we're staying in Hamilton and will both continue to job-search daily. I still have my "local coffee shop" job, and we still have the apartment. I'm not going to get into details about the circumstances, but when a company hires an inventory control assistant, the new employee doesn't expect to be swabbing out toilets.

I finished almost all my Christmas knitting. I didn't finish the socks for my mom. I've set a goal for this next Sunday ('cause I'm guaranteed to see her then). In the meantime, I've started a couple things:

Fair Isle Tam

I've never done fair isle before and I'm falling dangerously for it. I call this a stash-busting project, but I bought the yarn with this pattern in mind, so ....

February Lady Sweater

This actually is stash-busting. It's solely coincidence that I got 13 balls of nice yarn for $20. (3 balls Bernat Cashmere, 10 balls Sirdar Peru Naturals, remember?)

I haven't finished the second striped scarf for my friend yet, because I'd like to know if it's going to be another waste of my time. (Regarding the other scarf, my "friend" wants it again. I haven't yet told her that it's for sale and she can have it for $20.)

I've also done a few quick projects in the last week. A couple of Simple Purses (one cranberry, one raspberry), and a cowl and wristwarmers for the Secret Santa at work.

There are projects I'd like to start, but I'll finish up what I have now first (yeah, right).
