No pics, just random news...

the sweater progressed a bit today, it's got two inches of yoke complete. Trying to figure out something with the pattern though. my gauge was initially a tad different so I've had to planfully adjust along the way and if I knit the yoke as "high" as they state before starting the neck, I think the neck will choke my son... if I knit it lower, I'm worried my raglan decreases won't be quite right. But I'm a smart woman, I'll figure it out... another day... when I don't have a wicked headache!

Today I had two interviews at the same company. They seemed to go well, my gut says it would be surprising if I didn't eventually get an offer from them, but I'm not sure it's the right place for me. It's a good company, I just didn't get that "Wow, I'm excited!" feel. (case in point, before thanksgiving I had an interview and I was so excited when I left that I called three people to tell them about it.... this time, I sent an email)

Tomorrow I have a meeting at current job about my career and a final interview for the position I'm excited about. I'm going between being really hopeful and scared to death (scared they don't want me when I'm this jazzed.... scared they do want me and I'll have to choose to leave the job & people I currently know) It will be a busy and stressful day.... going to head to bed in the hopes of some sleep... although I expect I'll toss a bit...

In other people's news... totally excited about Lotus's mention in Yarn Harlot!! How thrilling is it?! Should be good for business! Very proud of Chelsea's recent award! Congratulate her for me!

Plus I just realized that it's only 15 days until Mojave Sis gets here!!

I've off to bed, wish me luck tomorrow!

Good luck finding the job that's the right fit, from one job seeker to another! I just have another week at my current job, and prospects are slim here. (If this posts twice, I apologize--got a blogger error)
