WWKIP and other stuff

There was no "official event" for WWKIP Day scheduled here in good old Las Vegas so I decided to see if there was an event scheduled somewhere close to here that I could go to. I really wanted to celebrate it this year since I missed it last year. The wonderful Yarn Mavens of Bakersfield, CA (there are a few pics with me in them that the wonderful lady who organized it all took, I forgot my camera in the car where it did me a lot of good) were having one so I made the travel arrangements. I bought a couple of new shirts...this one and this one before I left and I ended up wearing the second one. We had a really good time and the Market Place where we met was perfect with a light breeze and a beautiful fountain. The Yarn Mavens are working on an afghan that will be eventually actioned off and the proceeds go to a really good cause. I got to knit part of it...there are four circular needles with stitches on them and four people knit on it at the same time. It was really fun and easier than it sounds.

On the job news, I am looking again. [Edited to take out long boring description of why I hated my new job (not the old job or the first job).]

On other crochet/knit news I am almost finished with the second baby blanket for a friend who is having twins. I am also about to turn the heel on the second of Vicki's socks. I have not been working on anything else for quite a few weeks and it is paying off in how close the FOs are (pictures of which I still need to get off my lazy butt and post for everyone). I have a lot of projects in mind to begin (most of them socks or lace related) but I think I want to finish up a few other things before I start anything new.
