How odd

It has been some time since I wrote a blog post from home. Almost all of them in the last year were written at work, in what I might call my coffee time. It wasn't though. It was just a very quiet job. It feels odd to be writing from here again.  Odd, but good.  I guess I will have to clean off my desk if I am going to live here for a while.

I have some appointments and then Tuesday morning, I will be starting my job search once again.  In the mean time, we had a nice snowstorm this weekend and it made for a do nothing weekend, so I sat and knit and knit and knit.  And guess what happens when you knit and knit.

Funny how that happens!  

I am really pleased with how the lace is going.  I switched colours at the beginning of the transition chart.  Because of the construction of this piece, I could come into that chart in the middle, right at the base of the flowers.  I was a little worried about how that would look, not knowing that I could skip some of that chart.  This works out perfectly for colour, better than I hoped for.  I like how the lace looks too.  It isn't always as showy as it could be, but I think this will be fine.  I hope Paulette does too.  It will look lovely on her dark hair.

The faux blocking also shows how very pretty the star pattern is. A person could easily entertain a cardigan in that little pattern.  

Not that I am right now.  I am sticking virtuously to knitting socks and my Clapotis.  The intensity 0f the lace demands a break, and Clapotis is the perfect offset project.  

Anyway, that is what is happening here at Chez Needles.  It might have been crappy weather, but it sure was great for knitting!

Make sure you look for the same kind of job this time around.
