Job Good

I worked a little on the counter today, and apparently that's even easier than shirts. Plus, my schedule keeps seeming to improve. I'm satisfied. :)

I rewarded myself with the much coveted pattern, although technically I couldn't afford it. Now I'm not so patiently waiting for it come so I can "get 'er done" already!! [OMG, I can't believe I just used that phrase. I'm seriously tempted to censor myself here, but will hold off, for now.]

I found some caution orange yarn for the hunting hat, too. Thanks for all the suggestions. After much debate and referral back to my dad, we decided to go with "Hot Orange" in Lily's Sugar n Cream. It is *brighter* than the cheapo dollar store hat my dad had previosly [more neon] but it certainly attracts attention, and that's the goal, right? I've got my dad's almost finished up, and hopefully will have the second one [for Kris's buddy] done by tomorrow.

I got a 100% on my last math quiz. Just had to throw that in there; maybe next time when I am complaining about how I'm doing I'll come back and read this post.

Beginning to ponder X-Mas presents - better late than never, right? I don't think I'm going to really do any handmade presents this year, though - I did that all last Christmas and don't want to overkill on the crochet. Not sure everyone would appreciate it. Just gotta go the cheap/simple route this year, and I haven't quite figured out what that is yet.

Also, I am working on writing up the fulled hobo-ish bag pattern...*but* I need to try a new one with the modifications before I post it. [Anyone got some bulky wool and they want to test a pattern for me??] Speaking of this bag - I still need to line but, but every time I get out thta fabric I just don't feel brave enough. I'm hoping I'll be able to cajole my mom into doing it eventually. Then, if *she* fucks it up, I can be pissed at her. :)

Gotta run, Kris will be home soon. Hugs!
