Lots to talk about today. First. The good news is that I am employed (finally!) and the bad news is that it's only part-time. Oh well, what's a girl to do. The plan (cross your fingers) is that it will switch to full-time in about 3 months if everything goes well. I am the new chemistry research associate at the Burnham Institute. The projects sound interesting so here's hoping I will like it and won't mind how horribly I'm getting paid! I start Monday morning.
Second. I opened a cafe press shop with some fun Christmas/knitting items. I'm always a sucker for anything holiday-related and it was fun creating the items. Check it out if you get a chance.
Third. Check out Lynn's new websitewith her hand-dyed yarns. Gorgeous. I already snagged a skein for myself.
Fourth. Yesterday I did some sewing. Jackson is a warm-weather-loving dog so the combination of him getting a buzz cut and the weather turning cool (60s) makes him shiver. He likes this fleece jacket, but of course that's for Halloween so he needed some more. I went to JoAnn's, picked up 2 more fleece prints, and made him 2 more shirts. He loves them. Oh, I also made this really cool travel jewelry pouch that rolls up. I used some leftover fleece fabric and it turned out really cute (pattern from an old JoAnn etc magazine). I will include it with my mom's package of birthday gifts and she will love using it when she comes to visit me for Christmas!
