You all probably don't know this, but I have many, many jobs. Not in the, like, "I'm a mom who goes to work and is an awesome wife and daughter - oh, by the way, did I mention I play tennis?" sense. Those ladies have my respect, but no, it's not like that at all. It's more like: "Crap, it's 6:45 in the morning. I need to leave the house NOW so I can get to Job #1 on time and, thus, leave by 4 in the afternoon, haul ass way far North, teach for four hours, head home, write that article, edit that article for those people, knit this thingee up (where did I put the pattern?) for those other people, grade those papers, and... Crap! It's 6:45 in the morning again!"
Anyway, given all that, there hasn't been a lot to share with you all. Soon, though, that will change!
For one, you'll be able to see my work and words over here real soon. For all you writers and crafters out there, Yasmin is also looking for submissions. Here, give it a look.
Another project in the works is the completion of the Flutter Sleeve Cardigan. Oh, yeah. Remember that?
Also in line are the writing up of the pattern for Beatrice, and the final incarnation of this as of yet unnamed shawl type thingee.
And after all that, I think I'm going to knit something I can wear with leggings. You see, I had to buy some leggings for this dance class I signed up for. They came in a pack of three, so I now find myself with a surplus of leggings, because, really, how many pairs do you need for one little dance class? My solution is not to take the opportunity to do less laundry, but instead to knit up a tasty sweater to cover my legginged bum and legs a la Debbie Gibson. Or, like Debbie Gibson flashed into a future without acrylic and spandex.
Here are the contenders:
9. Maybe I should just get out my sewing machine and whip this one up.
Votes? Thoughts? Suggestions? I don't have any uber (where is that umlaut button?) lumpy bits needing camouflage, and I'm pretty short, so all of these will be longer than on the models.
