Another Finished!

Another project leaves the basket for good! Clapotis - Interlacements Ric Rac. When did I start this - I can't remember but I've had the yarn for almost 2 years....so it's been on the needles way to long. I don't know if I'll keep this or put it in the gift stash. I am liking it - but not sure it's really me. Time will tell.

I am really enjoying my new knitting group - I am so impressed with the projects that are flying off everyones needles. It's fun seeing new projects and techniques being learned. (Tamra thanks for sharing your goodies tonight - yum!) We are such a diverse group - and lots of beautiful creations!

This is theoretically my last week at my temp fill in job - but I am almost positive the status will be changing by the end of the week - stay tuned - but I'm about to be a happy full time employed superstar!! I've waited years for this to work out and it's about to - hurray. (Less knitting time - but maybe more yarn cash!)

I am definitely anxiously awaiting spring....In Oregon you have to have your studded tires off by April 1st - it always snows on March 31st. So like a good girl I got the tires changed on College Girls tires while she was 'vacationing' in California.....then it snowed, froze, etc. Then the state extended the deadline till next week. Luckily I didn't get my own tires changed. But College Girl had to over the pass yesterday on her old tires - in the slush and ice. I never time it right it seems. She made it back to campus fine of course. Last week was Oregon Spring break so there was lot's of 'going home' traffic. Now I've just got to find time to get my tires changed. Why is the mom always last?

They say spring is coming by the end of the week - Pumpkin will be glad - he won't have to sleep under the lamp on my desk anymore!!

Spring? In Central Oregon? Oh, yes, that mild space in April and May between freezing your buns off and getting fried dry. I remember! That's why I live in the valley.

Clapotis is lovely. Bravo!
