So, in light of overtime at the bakery and the strain of physical labor, I've quit my second job at the fish restaurant. Tonight is my last shift. Honestly, as much as I want to take on whatever comes at me and push through my perceived limits of endurance, I was cracking. And I have a surprising amount of knitting designs to work on as well, so for now I'll consider that my second job.
One design in progress at the Brendan Behan pub in Jamaica Plain, MA, having a beer after my new tattoo was finished:
Yes, that's my handspun.
And the tattoo? You may recognize it as a tree motif found in Neo-Assyrian palace reliefs. Many thanks to Chad at Fat Ram's Pumpkin Tattoo (once again. Oh, if you click on that link, the last tattoo on the right on the very first row is also mine!).
