So Many Interviews!2 down, 16 to go. Interviews that is... at least these "screening interviews" are only 20 minutes long, so it's not too bad.
Other than interviewing incessantly, I've been doggie sitting - Abby's daddy had to go out of town for the weekend, so I was babysitting. Plus, she got sick on Friday - her tummy wasn't happy, and she had a bit of a fever. She was MUCH better on Saturday, though, so she got out of going to the V-E-T early... she already has an appointment for tomorrow. But since she wasn't feeling well, we spent most of the weekend doing this:
Occassionally, when I wasn't being a dog-mattress, I managed to knit the odd stitch here and there. Well, more than the odd stitch - more like I got addicted to lace, and like some crack-addict, snuck in knitting time to the exclusion of pretty much everything else. (Shower? But that's 20 minutes of knitting time!) But in my defense- it's SO PRETTY! See?
It's the "rippling waters" scarf from Fiddlesticks - and the gang at the Happy Place seems to be doing a "Ripple-Along" - there are at least 4 in progress among the irregulars!
Unfortunately, the lace does NOT make for good "have to wait for 15 minutes until it's time for my interview" knitting, so I've HAD to start another pair of socks. I did manage to finish my sister-in-law's socks (although blocking still hasn't happened, obviously!)
and a close-up of the stitch pattern -
My next pair of socks is for my baseball-loving and Red Sox-adoring friend, Kati - and 3 guesses as to what these socks will look like! :)
Well, I'd better go - we're introducing Cricket and Abby to one another this evening, and we need to make sure no one feels the need to be a bad girl. Of course, Cricket's philosophy is summed up nicely on this pillow -
...and before we can make introductions, I'll have to distract her from the joy that is the feathery-bird-toy!
