I've just been offered a job which I accepted. This means there will be more money for yarn, but less time for knitting. It's exciting, but a bit sad that this is the way things work out. It also means that I will have money for the Nancy Bush class I want to take.

I'm working on Danica from Knitty ( I'm pretty sure everybody has made this scarf. I've had zero interest in making it, as there is tons of picking up stitches and ends to weave in. But it is the perfect pattern for my mother's hockey scarf. Her team has a three color scheme, one of which actually makes my mother nauseous, so she asked to not have much of it in her scarf. Danica is thus the perfect scarf for her. I hope to finish this today. This will be the first time I've knitted a pattern while reading it off of my laptop. I usually print it up so I can go wherever I want with it. I feel very chained. It's interesting.

There is progress on Nikki's socks, but may the gods help me if all this stockinette isn't boring as hell. It was good for calming myself before my interview yesterday, though.

I promise to post photos when Mike comes back from Costa Rica with my proper camera.

There are a few other projects that I have sitting next to me, but there's no reason to mention them. I will mention, however, that in my interview yesterday I was asked where I saw myself in five years. I couldn't help but respond with the Mitch Hedburg joke, "Celebrating the fifth year anniversary of you asking me that question." I guess it worked. Thanks, Mitch, it's a shame you've left us.

I, sadly, had ever heard that joke before. But I love it!
