Interweave Knits, Spring 2010 and Vogue Knitting Spring/Summer 2010 both have detailed articles including illustrations on finishing technique Kitchener. I’m SOOO happy!!! Although I can do a passable kitchener most of the time, these are great articles. Interweave’s concentrates the kitchener mechanics – set up, sequence, the logic involved, as well as ‘typical’ weaving in, dougle knit and how to graft to a bound off fabric. This is great! Vogue’s shows how to use charts for grafting and gives highly useful information along with illustrations that make sense. The two articles together really expand my repertoire. Again, this is GREAT!
How’s the job search coming, you ask? I’m glad you did. Last week found me at three different interviews, still waiting to hear on some of the results. At least there are interviews now. It took quite a while to even get responses. There’s still the possibility of the temp job starting next month but that’s getting scary. It’s been 2 1/2 months since the last temp job ended and am not employed yet, if it takes this long to find another job after that temp is over…. big trouble. So… taking testing for school tomorrow and getting things finalized there. Things are moving along, just may need to change direction.
My oldest is planning on moving to Seattle in a couple of weeks. She’s 19. How did that happen??? I’m fairly mixed on this, she wants new opportunities, new scenery, new new new. She’s young. New is good. So is home, or at least closer to home. Then again, parents send their children away all the time and as WRT pointed out… she’ll be back. How am I coping with all this? Finishing up her socks, of course. Then moving on to another pair and some cool scarves and and and…. yeah, at least she can take some ‘hugs’ with her.
