It Is Busy Here

January 25th, 2011

I’ve finished one of my Mysterious Green Socks but I haven’t had a chance to take a proper picture of it.  Here is a progress shot of it, sans the toe, and in the car.  Pardon the terrible-ocity of it, I took it on my phone:

I finished it on Saturday.  It turned out really lovely, but I’m having a bout of second sock syndrome.  Even though it fits okay, I’m still hung up on the teeny tiny gusset.  I feel like it would fit better if I’d made the heel flap an extra repeat longer.  Meh!  Hopefully I can make myself start the second one soon, because it really is pretty, and it needs a mate.

Also on Saturday, I got a pretty skein of Malabrigo Worsted from my aunt.  It’s reddish-pinkish-maroonish… very accidentally Valentine’s Day.  I’m using it to make Quest (the cloche version) from the new Knitty.  I’m through the increases… and it’s now being put on hold until I can get the right size circular needles.  Boo.

In non-knitterly, I’ve been pretty busy with classes recently.  They’re all really reading-heavy, and they’re taking up a big chunk of my knitting/pattern writing time.  Ha.  Aaaaand, I’ve also had a couple interviews for a job!  (FINALLY!  YAY!!)  I should know for absolutely sure by the end of this week whether I got it or not.  Cross your fingers for me!
