The Week In Review
Here we are with the weekly update. Notice how it's changed from the bi-monthly to the weekly? Aren't you impressed?
So. The porn job. I pulled the plug on it before it even started. Since I'm a newbie to this whole "unemployed" thing, I naively thought that I could make a certain amount of money before it would affect my unemployment check coming from The Governator. Because you know, I thought maybe the government wouldn't mind if I tried to live on more than $450 a week. WRONG. Nope. Not happening. I guess the logic behind this is that they're trying to ENCOURAGE me to find full-time work ASAP. As in, "Find full time work NOW or live in a box under the highway 280 / 17 interchange." To which I reply, "Fuck you, I have enough yarn to knit a HOUSE, you can keep yer stinkin' box. Neener, neener, neener."
So in preparation for my house knitting, I've been practicing with other things.
Hat #4 for Kristy's Hat Drive. This is Ann Norling's Spiral Rib Hat which I happen to like very much. In Lamb's Pride Worsted. Which I also happen to like very much but wasn't expecting to. Two paws up from Andy and DeeDee.
My first sock for the Summer Of Socks '08. So already I'm ahead of where I was when I finished the Summer Of Socks '07! I didn't expect to like this yarn either, it's Univeral Yarn's "Ditto." It's a bit scratchy even after a nice bath last night but not horribly so. I think this yarn would make a lovely pair of men's sock. 75% Superwash / 25% Nylon. And it's only $6.00 a ball so for $12.00 you've got a decent pair of socks.
Speaking of sock yarn (I am the Segue Queen) there's yarnage for sale on my Ravelry trade/sell page. Mostly sock yarn, some Blue Sky Alpaca stuffs. Yarn. Like for knitting stuffs.
