Aran SnugglesAfter a few days on the blocking board, the Aran is great. I am wearing it today, and the weather matches the sweater- gray and rainy, making me want to snuggle up on the couch with Cricket and knit. Unfortunately, I'm at work... oh well. The sweater fits well- in hindsight, I would have made the sleeves and body a smidge longer (1" or so), but that's mostly because I like longer sleeves! :) I have to wear a long-sleeved shirt underneath as even the 20% wool makes me itch after a few minutes, but so far, with the shirt, no problems. :) I have a feeling I will wear this sweater a lot... at least during the winter! All those cables make it very toasty- I'm glad it's not 100% wool, or I'd be melting right now!
In non-knitting news, I just got an excellent performance evaluation for my first rotation- I'm in a special program where, for the first year, we do 4 different rotations through different sections of the IT department. So every 3 months is a new job (but same office!)- kinda frustrating to move on just when I'm getting the hang of what's going on. Oh well- next fall I'll get my "permanent" placement... which will hopefully only be for 11 months (law school!). But it was definitely nice to get a good evaluation... never hurts to have in the file. :)
And the Latin phrase for today:
"a short cut"
