Proper post

As promised!

Hope everyone is well. Nice to be back :D

Lots of news!
1. You know how I had to reapply for my own job (bureacratic bullshit) well I got it. But now without some selection criteria, an interview (I become speedy gonzalez in interviews, if I spoke any faster, I'd fly!) and the official handshake from the Principal. :D

2. The assignment that was also keeping me nervous, finally nailed, less than 24hours before it was due. Terrifying and I was too slack to make a proper draft, show it to everyone in living memory and submit. With any luck, flying by the seat of my proverbial pants will pay off (or. erm.. not)

3. VintageGrrl has started dyeing fibre and offered her first batch up for grabs. The ice-cream flavoured Peppermint Choc Chip is now mine, ALL mine! And in the interests of free plugging, find her here and here

Also, a finished object! Well, not technically finished, I just need to seam it and but they look done because I've temporarily levelled up the seams up with safety pins (a happy, handy useful hint from spinning guild). The pattern from the latest knitty frankenknits. But they are warm, even though the ribbing at the bottom isn't grippy enough... Should I undo the cast on edge and make it tighter/add elastic? Opinions appreciated.

Anyway, with any luck there will be another post in about a week's time! YAY!

Sounds like all good stuff there! Yay!
I love the knitting too (especially the colours), although I've got no suggestions about the wrists. Sorry!

OH can't wait to see the fibre spun and knitted up. Lovely colours.

Congrats on the job. Well done.

And you will be alright with your essay.

How about this: make if tighter by going down one needle size and carry along a bit of elastic thread.
