During the past several months I have done very little but work, very hard. We have several cases that are rapidly progressing to Trial, and my job demands a lot of my time. I really do enjoy the job though, and am very thankful I took the chance to change employment last year. It was scary in the beginning, but now looking back I know I did the right thing. I only wonder if I should have done it sooner.
As far as knitting, I’ve made a ton of hats this year. I think I’ve been putting off knitting larger things for fear of failure. Ringbloomst (my Dale of Norway) is all but finished. I need to steek it, sew it, and finish the neck. I keep thinking each weekend, that that will be the weekend I do the work, but then something gets in the way. Considering the warmth of the wool, it’ll be a while before I can wear it, even if the Farmer’s Alamanc is correct and this year will be colder and higher snow fall then previous years.
Other then hats, I also got a strong urge to knit a stuffed animal. So knit a stuffed animal I did. This is a friend of mine’s daughter, who loves anything and everything pink. She was very pleased to receive a big pink elephant. Although when its tailed fell off in the middle of the night, and she woke up in hysterics, I’m not sure her mom was happy about the pink elephant.
