I got it!

As you can see, I'm a bit tired right now, but very happy indeed. Not only because I am on the couch with a kitty, my yarn and my laptop, but also because... I GOT THE JOB!!! 36 hours a week, excellent benefits and great co-workers! I do have to get up a little early - 06.45, not too early really - but I get off really early too. Working for the community is a great thing. My former co-worker got laid off. She was just not going to make it in the jungle. Any jungle really. Too bad for her, but I get to start my new job tomorrow and I'm happy about it. I hope she'll join me to the S'nB day saturday, though. She was a nice person after all.

I also got a great project going on. I can't show the whole sock since it's a gift for someone who might read this, but I've been experimenting with the twined knitting technique I learned two weeks ago. These socks are being made with a really nice, soft but 100% natural fiber yarn. Since it's not really durable, I thought of re-enforcing at least the heel with some regular Fortissima sock yarn and twining seemed a good new approach to me. I think it looks really good so far and the yarn is just a dream to work with.

Just three more nights till the second S'nB day. I am really looking forward to it eventhough I wasn't able to subscribe to any courses. I was able to volunteer though and I'm going to take (excellent) care of a guest. Get them coffee, show them around, you know, be a host. And I will be able to buy me some yarn.
