Guess What!

I'se gainfully and permanently employed now!! Picture me saying this in my Sophia from Color Purple voice. Yes yes, I was offered a permanent position and I'se took it. I'm now a Contract Specialist for a Health Care company. Insurance kicks in in 30 days. Can't wait. I want some more glasses. After being out of the work game for nearly 3 years it feels good. Praise God!

I meant to post pics of my Deep V Argyle Vest progress on yesterday but I ran out of time. So here it is! I'm really enjoying this project. Fair Isle keeps you engaged and boy am I alert and engaged. I'm enjoying the colorwork ride but I can't wait to apply these new skills to a man's vest. Sidenote: I really would like to do a really chic means knitwear book. I even have a name already. Nunya!



The yarn I'm using is Sublime's Cashmere Merino Silk DK in Clove and Navy. 75% Extra Fine Merino, 20% Silk, and 5% Cashmere. Super soft and silky! I'm itching to pair this vest with a deep navy or periwinkle button down and some nice flowy navy pinstripe trousers. Visions of Chalcedony cufflinks are passing through my mind and some great pointy toe pumps with a killer heel.

Oooh can't wait!

Oooooo, those cuff links are niiiiiice! You should make them your first congratulatory gift to yourself. I know exactly how you feel. I'd been working crappy jobs for 3 years and was contract at a great job until this January. The relief off my shoulders, OMG. I need glasses too, a checkup, a dentist visit. God is good, ain't he?

Oh yes, I got the book and yarn and will be posting on them soon. I want to find a pattern for the yarn first, I know that it definately belongs to Teddy Bear.
