First, the winner of the handspun, chosen in a random drawing because all your suggestions were so good and I wish I could send you all yarn, seriously. Congrats KGLO! Email me and let me know... what is your FAVORITE COLOR? And all the rest of my dear readers, check back, because I'm going to have giveaways as long as this recession lasts, baby, and that's gonna be a long, long time.
You blog readers are the BEST. I now have a 2-shift a week waitress/server job at an upscale local restaurant and have already been employing (oh ho ho) your suggestions in my everyday life. Behold! I have joined the Toy Society! I have wandered around a new neighborhood (where I now have a waitress job! Going into a restaurant in the new neighborhood got me a job!), I have baked a new bread recipe, and I have begun my one-photo-a-day documentation of this period, which I will be keeping on flickr.
Not too much knitting I can show, since I just finished up two submissions and have one very large design well underway (all I can say is that it's a MAN design... men need more cool but simple patterns, for sure, and I have several men in my life to provide guidance for me on these), but I did finish my last baby jacket for a while, I think. I call it the "Little Professor" jacket due to its tweediness.
