Since I am no longer at the yarn store, I signed myself up at a temp agency.  What with one thing and another, I have not been able to take the previous assignments they offered me, but I felt that to refuse the third time would look really bad.  I was kind of hoping the quiet would hold off till after Christmas.

So, I'm now back at work, full time, 5 days a week for the next while. How the heck did that happen?  

Well, it goes like this.  I bought the farm.  Farming produced about the same as it did back in the 80's - it is cash flow, not profit (or in my case, potatoes, not peaches) - and in order pay for the farm, I must work.    

I had a really good time today.  It felt nice to stretch my brain beyond knitting, but much as I love knitting hours and hours a day, I am sitting here, kicking myself, and wondering how on earth am I ever going to get 2 sweaters done before Christmas?


Past the bind off for the base of the collar.  I might just keep my target finishing date (end of November) on this one yet.

"bought the farm". Best watch how you bandy that term about...

This working for a living really cuts into the lifestyle, doesn't it?

How did things go at the farm this summer? If you go out this winter and want a cuppa cocoa just give me a shout.

Congrats to you. Jobs are hard to find.
pace your self though. You need enough energy left at the end of the day to knit.
