I just finished this knitted jelly fish for Tracy. She and I were in Michael's one day when we saw this pattern book and yarn on clearance. It has several weird creatures to knit and stuff. She picked out the jelly fish and the colors so I agreed to give it a try. I thought it came out pretty good. Kinda cute too.

As for my job at Jo-Ann's.... orientation is tomorrow at 5 pm. Must wear the prescribed "uniform" of black or khaki pants and a white shirt with a collar. Check and Check! Looking forward to starting this new chapter.

I got the phone call Friday around 6 PM. Yep! I've passed my first hurdle. I got the job. Granted it's not a glamorous job but I wanted it so badly. I'll be a cashier at Jo-Ann's. I'm supposed to get another call today to let me know what I'll be paid and to give me info about orientation. The interviewer asked me one very important question...if I'll just be giving my pay check back to the store on pay day...I did say, "NO" because I have tons of supplies already. I hope I can keep my promise to myself.

On another note, just wanted to show off my 2 latest knitting projects. I decided to do a baby blanket, or two, after completing a knitting class at Sophies' here in town. I'm so thrilled at how far I've come from not knowing anything over the summer.

This is my first attempt. Love the color but it just wasn't girly enough

Then I did this one which I made for my brand new niece up in Wisconsin.
More later about my new felting project and the CKC here in Louisville this coming weekend.

On Feb 11th we braved the snow and coming storms to see my baby graduate from Physical Therapy School. Steph attended Arcadia University which is just outside Philly. She really didn't get a diploma that day; just an I.O.U. as she still has to finish one of her clinical rotations that got interrupted due to the bike/car accident. But it was thrilling, nonetheless, to hear the speaker announcer her as "Dr. Stephanie _____". Fantastic!

Thanks for stopping by!
