The good and the bad

This cashmere sweater that I spoke of recently

is now this pile of yarn! Arm, front, back, arm. It was pretty much all one "piece" with only two places where joins were, though there are a few more breaks in the yarn due to my inability to cut seams neatly.
And on the urban aran front, the second sleeve was coming along nicely until I discovered something. See it? I didn't...for like 7 inches!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yep, missed a cross. Nope, NOT ripping it back. I'm gonna duplicate stitch over it and other such surgery until it looks better. And it will, cause I'll make it look better if it kills me.

So About That Black Suit Event...

No, it wasn't a court date, or a funeral, or a speech or presentation or anything. It was a job interview. For a very good job that I thought I had very little chance of getting. A job doing exactly what I like, in the exact field I just finished my masters degree in. A job with benefits for me AND Mr. VT, and real pay, and a real office with nice people all around me.


So I am officially employed, and I am so excited! Yeay for me, and thanks for the good thoughts and well wishes!!

Why Goodwill is sometimes better than yarn stores...

Cause at Goodwill, I can buy this
Made out of this...
Sooooo soft, a sweaters worth of cashmere, for $6.50. Looks barely worn, the color in the close up is very accurate, a light sea green. I'll be frogging it, and saving it until the perfect simple but just right sweater pattern falls upon me.

Fred and Margie

Fred and his new girlfriend Margie are very happy together. They enjoy having their photos taken. Margie wanted to get glamor-shots taken, but Fred said that the self-timer would be perfectly sufficient.
Margie thinks this is her better side.
Fred thinks Margie is right sexy...I agree.
