But I, I work in his factory

First up, beautiful knitting. I've made a sack hat modeled after the one Shackleton wore often during his adventure with the Endurance knit from the yarn I spun from my Spunky Eclectic fiber club May (MAY????) offering, Nightshade. Here it is, almost complete, basking in the natural light at jobjob:

I also finished my Waterfall socks; more details can be found here on the Woolgirl Sock Club blog.

Work under Dr. Richard Cory at the Neurosurgery Factory continues. If it weren't for the health insurance, I would run screaming. Does a jobjob have to be so humiliating and abusive?

That wool is sooooo cool. Any possibility of you selling it with the sack hat pattern as a kit?

Does a jobjob have to be so abusive and humiliating? In my experience, yes, and the one time I managed to find one that wasn't, I got laid off.

But not as many worries for me - I don't get health insurance from my job, so I put in my two weeks notice yesterday. :D

Oh, good call. My boyfriend has a lot of his records. I just never get around to listening to them because, I don't know, I don't really have an excuse. But tell me - is the entire record as much of a downer as "Atlantic City"?

And that Nightshade yarn is beautiful!

Humiliating and abusive? No no. That's how come I left the BBDubs to work at Windsor Button. (Bath and Body Works. Defiinitely humiliating, and I couldn't knit while working!)

I'm still sorry about jobjob. But that Wheels of Fury hat is bloody fantastic!
