As far as the job things go, Walker is still looking to pursue a legal career (which is one of the reasons we're looking to move to NC now rather than later). But, as I'm sure you've all heard, I've been turned off quite a bit by the legal profession and am looking to transfer into the financial sector. Wish us luck--we're probably going to need it!
And now, knitting news. I know I neglect this blog and I'm really sorry that I do. I think the reason is that I wait until I have pictures to show and since I'm often way too lazy to take pictures, the projects pile up and things get rather daunting. So I resolve to update this thing much more often, with or without pictures. Also, no more than one project per post. It's getting out of control. Further, once I come up with a new name, I intend to move this blog. Blogger won't let me change the user to my new email address and it's a bit of a PITA to keep logging into old email. I'll let you know and leave the forwarding information on this blog when/if that happens.
Progress toward the etsy shop is plugging along. I hadn't been very inspired lately, but I have 2.5 hats that I think might sell, so hopefully soon I'll be posting about my Grand Opening! This is another incentive for switching the blog: I hope to link the two in a feeble attempt to generate sales. We'll see how that goes...
Today's project: Spiral Boot Socks!
I finished the first one ages ago and set the other aside so that I could finish my Christmas knitting. I really like this yarn, Lion Brand Superwash Merino. It's about the only Lion Brand yarn that I like and it was a royal pain to acquire, but for these socks, it was worth it.
This pattern was a joy to knit. Easy, but not too easy and kept me interested the whole time. The only problem is that I wish instead of the lacy edging that I had used ribbing because they have a tendency to fall down. Maybe the boss is right and I am too skinny. If my calves were meatier, I wouldn't have this problem...
They are super soft, though and I love wearing them. I may make them again, just shorter next time.
