My mittens are done! However, they’re still wet – 24 hours after I washed them. I was hoping to take pictures and do the FO post today.
So instead, I started a sock. Technically, it’s the second sock of a pair, but, well, these socks are going to coordinate instead of match.
I’m using this:
That goes with this:
And making this. (No pictures yet, it’s just a cuff at the moment.)
Of course, the big news for today is that it’s the last day of my employment with my current company. I did support work for Circuit City, and in case you hadn’t heard, they went bankrupt. I stayed on and helped close down my stores, but now my company doesn’t need me. I’m lucky; I get a severance package and with the COBRA subsidy we can at least consider affording it. I’ve got a good job prospect IF they decide they’re going to fill the position (grr, government jobs with their waffling on whether or not it’s a total hiring freeze or if they can give the go ahead they already gave.)
So don’t cry for me yet. I’m choosing to be somewhat optimistic – there’s lots of time to knit and fill out applications during the day.
