Well… not much new to report… I did get a little bit done on the project. I discovered that backwards casting doesnt seem to make a difference. Yes, I cast on backwards… there’s a whole different thread regarding that (with pics of the yarn I’m using on this project). Plus, as i recall i also put a post of my project in the “In-Process” thread.
Interestingly enough as I was sitting there doing a Purl row, I came up with my own rhyme for how to do it… I know Amy has one in her video but i couldnt remember what it was. Kicker is, the one I came up with has a Christmas theme. I’m considering whether to PM Amy and sharing the rhyme with her or whether to wait until much closer to Christmas.
As of current, for this project, I’m doing what I think is called the stockenette stitch… alternating knit and purl rows. I figured I’d do this so that I could continue practicing both knitting and purling.
In other news:
My wife has registered for her first semester of her program classes. She picked up her (scrubs) pants and her stethescope this last week, but had to wait for them to sew the patch on her shirts. I’ll probably get those tonight on my way home. She will be going days… alternating between Mon/Wed and Tue/Thurs classes each term.
I was unofficially told this week that my current consulting contract was extended through the end of the year. And I’ve had two recruiters contact me last week for other jobs… One of which I’m an excellent candidate for. (He submitted me for it.)
My kids have less than 2 weeks before summer break and less than 2 weeks before they go to CA for 3 weeks to spend with their grandparents (in-laws).
That’s about I’m coming up with right now.
