Little Purls of Wisdom

A lot of knittting, and maybe a little wisdom.

adventures of a southern belle… July 1, 2008

Not really. Me? A Southern belle? yeah, right. Though I happen to be living in the south, so I guess that’s close enough. Still, no excuse for why I seem to fall off the face of the earth. But I’m still around, I swear! I’m knitting and reading and working and all that fun stuff. Needless to say, it’s been busy.

I’m working at a yarn store one day a week and it’s wonderful. Though I don’t make much money (however, i do have  some fabulous new yarn ;). I get to hangout for 8 hours, knit and talk to people about knitting. Not too bad. Thanks to that job, I have some new projects, too.  Here’s a list, but no pictures just yet. Sorry.

– The cropped cardigan with leaf ties from knitting out of Noro Silk Garden Lite. I’m making a button closure instead of the ties. I love it.

– A bulky cropped cardigan from Fitted Knits out of Malabrigo Gruesa in a pretty aqua color. I needed something instant gratification. Did I mention I finished half the project yesterday? Yeah, it’s pretty instant. Though I need to buy one more skein of the Gruesa, a skein of the worsted weight for the border and 3 big buttons. Fun and very silly.

– I’ve bought 2 skeins of UrbanGypz sock yarn in fun colors.

– I still have countless pairs of socks that I’m working on and shawls and other fun stuff. I’ll have pictures soon!

I’ve been working with my Wicked Step Mother on personal assistant stuff, so that’s fun. That’s job number two.

Tomorrow I start job number three at a cute little bakery/cafe in town. I’ll be working there a lot, so that’s fun. Apparently their hiring me to work full time. Insane, isn’t it? Yay busy summer!

I really have to start looking into scholarships and things for study abroad. I want to go to Italy for a month or two next summer, so we’ll see how that pans out. I’ve got to start researching for my thesis. I need to write my proposal by September, so wish me luck! For now, I’m back to the super busy summer schedule!
