What a week!

My first week in the new job just flew by. Many adjustments to make... new space, new work, new people. I'm so used to being a high performer that the biggest change is that I don't know everything about my job for the first time in a LONG time. Max says it's the learning curve and he's right. I'm sure it will feel like home in no time.

The Claudia hat
A friend's birthday is coming up next week and so I started this hat for her the other night. Goes alot quicker without using the cable needle and so far it has been an easy knit.

Not surprising

You Belong in 1981

Wild, over the top, and just a little bit cheesy. You're colorful at night - and successful during the day.
What Year Do You Belong In?

In other news
  1. My first day was quiet as I settled in... but I get my first project today!
  2. My friend Cara got a new job too! Getting back in touch
  3. I signed up for ISE6... just waiting to hear that I'm in.
  4. I'm almost finished knitting my second Hodology. Should have new pictures soon.

The week of colour ends here with violet... though maybe at some point I'll do another combination like cyan, magenta, and teal. This was a good opportunity to use some pictures I had taken... some were from last month and some were from 2003.

Tomorrow I start a new job. It's a promotion at my current company and I think it could be the turning point in my career. That's all I'll say since I don't like to talk about work on my blog... but if I'm not posting as much in the coming weeks, you'll know why.

Wish me luck!

I had to do a flickr search for the rest...

Indigo bunting
Indigo textures Rainbow Week - Indigo - 061607 indigo shibori 9 patch An Appointment with Indigo
When I think of indigo, I think of the dye, a colour that is not blue and not purple (though in my mind more blue than purple)... but still hard to define.

A week of colour

It's grey today, typical of winter everywhere, so I thought I would do a week of colour. Let's start with red:

Kitty play house

A long time ago, Max and I learned that the best toys for our cats are the ones that we don't buy for them specifically to play with... but empty boxes leftover from purchases.
