SpillyJane is doing it to me again. Grabbing up every single unoccupied moment of my time and filling it with yarnie goodness. This is my stay-at-home project, but I have been know to allow it to travel to my Wednes night knit group to show it off. Purple yarn is Sundara in Lenten Rose and the multi-colored is Zitron Unisono. I am loving the Zitron; it contains aloe vera and jojoba and is so smooth. I look forward to knitting this in a sock by itself.

This project brings me back more than thirty years to a time when I would sit staring at my papa, just waiting for him to finish the evening newspaper. It was only after it was read, word for word, front page to the last classified ad, that I was allowed to start my scissor infliction. I would make paper dolls for hours. Paper girls holding hands, elephants holding each others tails, Amish dolls, boys, bicycles, snowflakes... ...oh the things I could make in series. And now Kate Davies has given me more reason to start this obsession off again with her gorgeously designed Paper Dolls . I am making the classic girls holding hands (adding hair) while other knitters have added owls, hedgehogs, cowboys, families, chickies, snails, and so very much more. I am loving this project.

Well, long time... no talk... I guess the best place to start off is where I left off. I finished the Girasole by Jared Flood in the Cascade Eco Alpaca. We have moved into the new house. I no longer work in Fox in tourism. I bought a LYS, bought a Diner, closed a Diner, and am back in the knit shop. The knit shop is a great hobby and covers most of it's own bills, but it isn't quite a financially lucrative career. Rewarding career? Definitely! Pays the mortgage? uh... So, here I am, look for a professional position with a reputable company. It really is much, much harder that I have ever imagined. I was once unemployed ten years ago and found a stellar awesome job. Let's hope that happens again! Well, I am back blogging again. Look forward to doing so on a regular basis. I'll show more of the house, more of my knitting, and keep you posted on the job search. Wish me luck!
