Right, so until September 2008, actually September 27, 2008, I am not allowed to buy anymore yarn. It is stash busting time, and well, I need to save $ for the wedding. Plus, I am totally addicted to knitting socks! So far, I have finished the following:
A pair of RPM socks from knitty.com knit using magic loop and out of Koigu KPPPM,
A pair of hot pink fetchings, knit using magic loop and debbie bliss cashmerino aran,
And the first sock of a pair of Cookie A's BFF socks, knit using magic loop and out of koigu KPPPM.
Things that are planned to be knit,
- anthropologie inspired capelet
- wicked sweater – just waiting on size 7 needles
- more socks
- more fetchings
I managed to take a few pics of yarn I received for xmas, or purchased on 12/31/07 (stash busting started jan 1, 2008), and some that has been marinating in the stash for a while.
Job wise, more interviews have come and gone, still waiting on a decision on one position, and have decided to seek certification to teach in the state of NJ – so I will be sitting the PRAXIS I/II hopefully by March, so I can seek employment as a HS Math teacher. Nothing else is really going on on that front.
I've decided to go Wheat/Gluten Free with my diet. So far it is working out well. I made this decision because there is a wheat/gluten sensitivity in my family – my one nephew is in fact allergic to both, as well as soy. I find that I feel more together and my blood sugar seems to be more stable. Plus, losing 5lbs right off the bat always helps 😉
Wedding wise, we have met with a photographer, probably the one we will go with, an have scheduled a meeting with the DJ for the reception. Soon I will have to start looking for my dress, but I'm trying to slim down a little more before that happens! Things are going smoothly, but this stuff is expensive, makes me fear for when/if my children decide to get married (when we have kids that is).
