New Year

Lets see since I last blogged what has happened....

In no necessary order: I got a job as a temp. Transitioned from temp to full-tie employee (yay!). Celebrated the holidays (if not the way I would have wanted but whatever). I've had visitors. I've explored. There's a lot things that happened. A lot of fun. A little bit of bad, but it's all working out.

I will say I'm definitely happy to have a full time job now. It feels a lot better than being a temp.

Here's a few photos for what I've been up to in the past 4-5 months...
(These are in no real order, truthfully)

 Knitting-wise (since that's supposed to be the point of my blog) I've been semi-busy. Mostly knitting socks. I've got a sock bug right now and don't really want to knit on anything else. It's not a bad bug to have though. Look at my pretty sock drawer!

I've also got a Romi shawl on the needles, that I need to devote more time to. I just keep preferring to knit my socks instead.

I had a stressful bit of December where I decided to dive into the malabrigo stash and make myself a Cairn set. Which I think turned out lovely. I'm planning on making myself a scarf with the remaining hollyhock that I have (~2.5 skeins).

I've also put myself into a "self-imposed sock club" this year. I love sock clubs, but right now, I literally have no money to spend on them. I also have quite a large stash of sock yarns that I need to get using. So I sat down on New Years Eve, paired some yarns with some patterns and wrote it down. I also printed any patterns that needed printing and balled all of the yarns. So hopefully, they'll make for a quick grab of projects.

So far, so good. My january socks are done!

Until February rolls around I'm going to try and work on my WIPs. (Zephyr Cove and socks for Aynsley.) ... I really just want to start my next pair of socks though.
