A few miscellaneous good things

  1. More on The Loopy Ewe - I'm set up with them as referring friends so if you don't have an account with them yet and decide you want to order - click through my link on the side! If you do, I get a $5 credit. :-) (shameless request for free stuff now over
  2. I am on a dishcloth craze! (which is good considering the number I need done for Christmas) I became obsessed with the petal dishcloth Jenna sent me so I had to tackle that pattern. I made two so far this week and also have a "grandma's favorite" on the needles right now (the striping cotton!) Photos coming soon, I'm not on my own computer at the moment.
  3. I have a new job! Only 4 years after Grad School I have a full time job. ;-) And it is even the kind of job I have been wanting. I start November 12th. :-D Unfortunately this working full time thing is coming at the wrong time considering my holiday knitting list to finish. ;-) Hopefully it isn't too cold in there since I won't be able to make my own fetching or dashing until the holiday knitting is done.
  4. I've also been working on the Tiger Lily socks. I love this color!

that's it for now!

p.s. I have a shiny green new ipod nano - does anybody have one and can suggest a case or cover that you like? I'm not sure what kind of thing I want for this one. It is so tiny and delicate seeming compared to my old ipod.

Congrats on the new job!! Woohoo! And I'm glad I inspired some petal dishcloths! They're so pretty. My friend Dulcie actually inspired my first one, she gave me one of those flower shaped chenile yarn ones (from the one skein wonders book, I think?). Then I had to try them myself!

Congratulations on the new job!

Thanks, ladies!
Jenna, maybe it's just because the growing of the petals keeps me interested but it seems like the petal ones go much faster for me so I'll probably make a bunch!
