A miracle! Or three

G'day all!

Much less grumpy today. Partly thanks to you guys and partly cos I've been busy you see. I've been writing resume and stuff for the job app. I've been knitting. I've been digging in the yard. I've been talking to people about a temp role for at least a month for three days a week. I start work on Monday (miracle #1). I won't bring home even half what I used to but it is a start!

Recently I finished my skeining warp board thingo and skeined up a 17 loop of yarn. Then I tried dyeing it.


Then I really wanted to knit with it to see how it came out. So here is something I started knitting yesterday morning when I was feeling fussed.


Ooops. I finished it. I could've knitted a whole sock in a day if I had tried harder. (Miracle #2)

It would've been quicker if I had not decided to put a snakey cable up the side and cably bits for the ribbing.


Miracle #3?

This.

The newspaper was at the front door.


Usually the newspaper is lurking in the garden or on the path or on one memorable occasion was in the back yard, having bounced through the gate. They put it through the window a while ago and it had to be replaced....

Miracle #4 will be if I actually knit a second sock. I am feeling pretty inspired!

Wanna see my new best friend? LOL I love it! It can reach *everywhere*!

anon!

  4. Mice sock. Is it 8ply?? Or 4ply?? I can do an 8ply in a day, but a 4ply? That would be a miracle indeed!!

    I love it when the paper makes it inside the Forbidden Zone, I don't even have to go out the gate then!!
