Sock Yarn Stole Revealed
Fybrespates pansy, used for socks for mememe!
Need More Yarn - not a statement, the name of the place which dyed the yarn. Also used for socks for me.
And Opal Handpaint, used for socks for Gibbering.
I am loving knitting this thing. The pattern is nice and soothing, and the feather and fan really shows up the colours beautifully. And I'm enjoying the colour changes, and remembering the socks I've knitted along the way.
Work is easing off a little - I figured out yesterday what was stressing me most. When at work, I have a 'to do' list constantly revolving and updating in my head. With this new position, I still have a to do list, but I have no idea if all of the items are on the list or not. Sigh. Also, I used to have a whole set of concrete tasks. Now, it's keeping a lid on several processes, problemsolving, dealing with urgent queries. Not nearly as neatly compartmentalised, and it's leaving me at the end of the day feeling like I haven't really done anything. Still, it's been over a week, nothing's imploded or exploded, nobody's screaming at me (well, apart from the usual clients), and I've had an important meeting where nobody picked me for an imposter. Yay me.
Today is a public holiday here - yay! I've just had a big bowl of porridge with brown sugar and raspberries, Lulu is sitting on the floor next to me contemplating a cat toy, the sun is shining, and knitting awaits.
Good thing for the day: I have a whole season of Law & Order to watch.
Bad thing for the day: None so far!
