A Quickie

So, I'm pressed for time since I avoided doing my design work all weekend by keeping up to date with the MCY thread on Ravelry. Seriously, even though I'm sort of avoiding the forums overall right now, this thread is THE MOST entertaining thing. EVER. PERIOD! It's sad, but even more addictive than General Hospital. Anyway, this means I need to do my real job and get this 3-D drawing done and my 4 sections rendered before class today. . . at 5:30. UGH!

Aside from the MCY thread, I actually did a fair bit of knitting this weekend. Picovoli is flying along, but I need to ball another skein of yarn and so it is stalled mid-bust. It seems my gauge is a bit tighter than the swatch, but since it is a silk/cotton bled, I'm expecting it to stretch a fair bit, so hopefully it's OK! Maude is knit to the point that I will actually split the arm holes next round. I swatched with the Trekking I got from kemtee on Saturday to start Jake's next pair of socks (these) and I LOVE THAT YARN! I can't wait to get going on the sock. Kemtee also pointed me to a FAB-U-LOUS jeweler out in Suffolk that seems he can do my engagement ring for WAAAAAAY less than everyone else I've heard from, so that made me happy.

Finally, everyone, please send good karma/vibes/thoughts/prayers or whatever it is that floats your boat our way for tomorrow. Jake has had the most ridiculous crappy situation going on with work since September. I don't want to go into details, but it's so ridiculous because the situation arose because HE TOLD THE TRUTH! Anyway, he has a really big day tomorrow that sort of will determine whether or not we get a positive resolution to it, so we can use all the positivity you can spare!

Now, to work on drawings. . . .

Carly, I have a request.. I had queued Picovoli ages ago and was getting ready to cast on when Magknits went away. Can you email me the pattern? Grumperina hasn't posted it on her blog yet... and it's not been changed on ravelry either... sadness...

good luck for a positive resolution of jake's work situation. it's never wrong to do the right thing, although it does sometimes take a while for that to become clear.

I have a Ravelry account which I log into almost every day. I have never heard of the MYC thread. So, of course, I had to go check it out. It's huge!
Best of luck to Jake. Let us know how it goes.

I've been stalking the heck out of the MCY thread as well... no posting for me, but lost hours of productivity this weekend...

Yay! The Trekking is in a loving home and I can sleep nights. ;-P

I'm sending good vibes Jake's way.
