It's Yarn Along again. Time to see what knitters are knitting and reading all around the interwebs. It's a great way to find new knitting blogs and get people to find yours too!! Click here to read all of our old yarn along posts. We've been doing this a while and you can see our progress on our knitting for almost the past year!
This week the shock is wearing off and I'm having fun with the notion that with uncertainty anything can happen. For the last couple of weeks I've been terrified of this idea that I honestly don't know what we're doing for December. Not sure. Don't know and that's ok. It's been more fun to think of the possibilities, pretending that we sell everything and hang out in a different city, a different continent, a different state? Who knows. It's been my experience that when I start imagining these things that the more mundane options are the ones that carry through.
For instance, this morning I found a job posting for a production position at Blue Moon Fiber Arts, which would be a dream job for me, even at $10/hour. The job is outside of Portland and I'll be the first one to admit to you that I fantasize about living in Oregon. More trees, more rain, more knitting weather ;) However there aren't many jobs there for my husband and it would be highly unlikely that we would move there, but it's still nice to dream.
My knitting is still playing the nesting game. Out of a strange desire to stashbust I've been knitting a chair cover for my son's mini-poang chair. Some of you don't know what a poang chair is let alone a mini-poang chair. Here's a pic:
It's that weird chair from ikea. We have a smaller version so our boys can cozy up and read books (or more usually have their time-outs), but silly me I shrunk the chair cover and discovered that I couldn't buy a replacement, so like any knitter worth his or her salt, I started knitting one.
As for reading, the Interweave Store is having an epic sale on digital downloads of their magazines -just $2/each! I bought 12 magazines, ending up with hundreds of knitting patterns -some from just the last three years including the Jane Austen issues for just $24 and I could download them instantly. Even though we are low on cash, this small purchase was enough to keep me entertained for weeks to come so it's worth it to me, a little bright light of joy.
