Random Wednesday

1. Thanks for all the comments on the socks. For those of you who asked, the stripey socks (or That 70s Sock as I like to call it) is just a 3x1 rib, and the green sock is the Cloverleaf Rib pattern - an old Six Sox KAL pattern (though I think it is availble on the internets somewhere else).

2. The second green sock is ready to flap some heel. Perhaps that goal of another finished pair by the end of the month is possible - especially since I have a whole other week to finish them up.

3. Only 2 more days of school. 'Nuff said.

4. I've been prepping my Amazing Lace Team - more details soon!

5. I've joined Amanda's Summer Reading Challenge. I'm not sure what my challenge will be yet, but I'd like to get to some of those books people have been telling me to read for years. This may mean I have to stay away from the library though, since many of those books live on my shelves here. This may prove difficult.

6. I am so glad that The Closer is returning this summer - at least I'll have something to watch other than endless repeats of L&O.

7. I got a camera phone! As soon as I figure it out, I'm sure I'll be using it to show y'all random pictures of my day-to-day life. Can you contain your excitement?

8. New purses. One is green (for Project Spectrum). Love them. Thanks mommma!

9. Posting has been spotty for a few weeks, as I've been giving myself an ulcer looking for a job since November. The stress has really been getting to me. After all, I have a master's degree, several years experience and there are about 40 school districts within 30 miles. It should not be this hard to get a freaking job! It's not like I want to be Sydney Bristow (BTW - did anyone else think the series finale of Alias was lame?), I just want to teach!

10. I got a job on Friday. And there was much rejoicing.

11. Could not knit a stitch tonight during Lost. You?


  1. Congratulations on getting a job!!!! What level/subject are you going to be teaching? I'm going to school hoping to eventually get my masters in ed. to teach biology for high school! Sorry your search was so long and tedious!

    Your socks look great btw!
