Sleepy Saturday

I've been picking up extra shifts at my part-time job since the woman who works the opposite weekends gave her notice. Since we are trying to buy a house in the near future, this was the perfect time for the manager to ask me, hahaha!! We've seen a few properties so far, one of them is doable, but a little smaller than we'd like so we're keeping it in mind, but looking at other things. Some of them were downright nightmares - mold, cracks, death traps, LOL!

We don't like living here, for many reasons I won't go in to at the moment, I haven't got all day to list them, and now some of the biggest "rule-breakers" and nuisance people are banding together to form a tenants association ... give me a break!! We want out even more now!! I told my boyfriend I was going to start packing now, and he said, well if it works as therapy for you, hahaha!!

I've been working on the baby blanket, the shower at work is June 10th so I better light a fire under my butt! With house hunting I haven't been getting much done for knitting! I did bring this with me to work and will for the next two days and hopefully get most of it done.

This is the newest addition to our family. We adopted him in March. Nikoh has a lot of personality and is a joy to live with, he makes us laugh all the time!!

I may be teaching a knitting class at the local technical high school in the Fall. I've been in contact with the organizer in Jan. and just emailed her again to touch base and let her know I was still interested.

I am participating in Sock Wars, but I am not thrilled with the pattern. It wasn't written very clearly and I had some trouble with the stitch pattern repeats, then went online and saw that I wasn't the only one. Its dissapointing that this is supposed to be a fast paced knitting competition, but some people can't even get through the pattern. I do have one sock about half way done, but am not very motivated to finish it too quickly.

The patterns used in previous Sock Wars was one of the reasons I didn't join. I didn't like them. I quit SKP 2008 because I didn't like the first pattern either.
