Day 333/365: Sweater Progress

My formerly one-armed sweater now has a second sleeve in the works.


Now I am trying to decide how long I want the sleeve, and whether I should end with ribbing or some other style of cuff.

Day 328/365: Why I’m Loving This Month of November

I realized something the other day.  This year, there are five Mondays in the month of November.  Monday is my regular day off (I work 10-hour days from Tuesday to Friday), so that’s five days this month that I don’t have to go in to work.

Also, Veteran’s Day, Thanksgiving, and the day after Thanksgiving are all state holidays in November.  Tomorrow is the last day that I have to work this month.  Times like these make me even more thankful for my full-time permanent salaried position with the state of California.

All of these days off = more time to knit, or crochet, or sew, and do as I please.
