I have joined the masses having fun over at Ravelry, and I, too, am having a great time obsessing over getting every last little detail on line. I'm "GoldenIris" over there, so if you haven't yet, look me up and say hi.
Ravelry is also a fabulous way to occupy my mind and time as I wait to hear back from the possible employer. I have to get through today and probably most of tomorrow! But that is okay and I can be patient. And once I get a job I'm springing for a paid flickr account so I can really get the most use out of it as well as Ravelry. No more losing photos!
Here's what I've been working on lately. And by lately, I mean the last three days.
This is a very basic v-neck in-the-round raglan that I am just cruising along on. Well, now I'm cruising. Earlier I was very, very angry with my yarn.
I swatched. There was a knot. So when I ripped out the swatch to start, I left the few yards in front of the knot behind. Then as I cast on and knit a few rows of ribbing, there was another one. And another one. And three more after that! There were six - SIX! - knots in this ball of yarn (I know because I re-balled the whole darn thing), all within the not-quite 2 inches or so of ribbing at the bottom of this sweater. SIX! Let me tell you, I got pretty good at splicing these together with a needle, but I was so mad I could have spit. And all I can say is if the other balls are like this, the yarn company is getting more than a polite complaint. Six knots within the first third of the ball is completely uncalled for.
Okay, I'll take a deep breath and step away from the wool, and play with pretty photos instead.
