Recess is over!

I'm now back to work. Nine to five. Monday to Friday. Sleep, walk the dog, work, walk the dog and start over the next day ;)

Ok, it's not that bad! Not at all actually! I really like my new job (communication and marketing coordonator for an non profit organization that promotes sustainable transport in Montreal). It's just that, call me lazy, but I would much rather stay at home and craft all day long. But somebody has to pay for all that nice yarn and beautiful japanese fabric!

Speaking of nice yarn...now that I'm almost fully adapted to my new routine I had time to finished a lovely pair of fingerless mittens. My first project with double pointed needles! Well, I failed at another pair of mittens a few weeks ago but that's ancien history!

Have a good year at work! Your job sounds like a good one! Did you hear about the railways in Melbourne, Australia? It was so hot, the train tracks buckled and the roads melted! Not so good for the commuters!

I'm in the same boat: a good job doing worthwhile work. But still, I'd much rather be at home doing my own thing.

Congrats on the Toasties (I just finished knitting a pair myself). They look super-cute with your striped t-shirt.

Congrats on the new job — sounds like a really great organization. Your fingerless mittens are adorable. I just learned to use DPN last year and now I'm addicted to making socks. There is just so much you can make with them. Have fun!

Yes, crafting all day sounds wonderful. I love this pattern. I made the other version but, plan to do this as well. A nice relaxing knit.

I can't knit, but they look lovely. Congratulations on the new job - it sounds interesting. Just out of curiousity, how do you get to work?

i, too, would rather stay at home and craft all day (i wouldn't call that lazy at all!) but there are bills to be paid and fabric to be bought:) your fingerless mittens are lovely.

I love the tea wallet - so cute! We made something like that for my aunt - so when she is in session with Parent / Teacher Conferences she can make them a cup of tea. Cute idea!

Anyway - Still waiting ever so patiently for those cross stitch designs. HINT HINT! :)

Good to see your blog again!
