DSCN1932 I started this a month ago, finished most of it, and then…put it in my WIP drawer and didn’t touch it for weeks.

So yesterday I finished it, attempted to block it (hello acrylic blend!) and gifted it to the whore today. I told her to not get it dirty bc I like how it turned out.

this project also confirmed my suspicion that i really, really need some blocking wires. and sock blockers. well, this had no need for those, but i just remembered i need some.

DSCN1931I think I should start on some christmas knitting, though. I have at least 3 scarves to make, and judging from my attention span, i will only finish one of them before december 25th.

Luckily i decided all my friends should be given malabrigo gifts this year..

In non-yarn news, I have an “interview” for assistant manager today at a different store. Is it an interview when the DM basically said you have the job, and you’re now just searching for which store will take you?

And i think its really cute that Stu got all upset i was going on vacation, until i told him i’d only be gone for 3 days. he thought i’d be away for over a week đŸ˜›

DSCN1895

here is my very own original creation…a camera case! i had made another one, but it was acrylic and gross. this one is made out of yummy malabrigo (the seemingly endless ball of sapphire green worsted i have)

so i asked the DM for a promotion. or, actually, told her i should be promoted, that i want to work my way to the times square store, and that i want to be put in a different store rather than continue dealing with the Reign of Heather. and also that i need to be put on full time and not put up with working full time and not getting any benefits from it.

she, surprisingly, said, ok, i’ve been meaning to talk to you about that, bc its a good idea.

that was a week ago and she assured me she was talking to the RM about it.

yup. only a week.

doo doo doo…

so. how much longer must i wait before i kick someone and demand a promotion?

if you don’t understand the urgency of this, please note the latest gem of a quote from my fearless leader:

“i think im getting OCD…i thought i had a bug living in my ear.”

i need out.



no really, don’t overanalyze it.

3am. my car, driving home.

glance outside. HOLY CRAP there is a kangaroo on the side of the road!

a moment of time longer than is acceptable for this situation goes by.

…perhaps it was just a deer.
