New job issues appeared on Friday. The project I was on has been postponed. It is believed it is a good project but needs to be delayed while other things are concentrated on. This means that those of us on the project have to find positions within the company. Everyone will have a job and there will be no salary changes so that part is good, but it's a little weird being in flux for the moment. However this means that in a few weeks, I may no longer be an erpbeepa which makes me a bit sad.
Knucks.... well, I would love to say that they at least were going well. However after having the first one almost complete I noticed it didn't look quite right. Turns out that I never checked my gauge and it was too small. So I ripped it out and I haven't had a chance to restart it. (they are done in secret and I've been missing my secret time).
Shawl, finally good news! It's progressing nicely, I'm on the 5th repeat. I believe I will need 10 repeats so in a sense, I'm halfway. It's about 15" high and about 26" wide at the top.
Oh, and the shawl is on the couch and you can get a much better visual of the couch color. It really is tan! I need to find a better background for the shawl though, you can't see the diamonds very well.
Happy knitting, hope your days are smoother than mine! -Dfly

Eventually, I'll email pictures. I don't want to post the knucks because I'm worried that son will see and figure it out. He won't read the blog, but pictures catch his attention.
In other news, Tiger is having trouble getting home which makes me sad. Mojave Sis is working every angle she has but there are some issues with getting to the airport from her home. Apparently Greyhound, inappropriately named for a dog, does not allow animals on board and Greyhound was vital to the whole plan. We aren't sure what this means to our new addition yet, but it's not looking too good.

Ok, you know about the purple shawl seen below. 34 rows done on that (out of more than I want to think about, esp since they increase every other).
Anyway, son asked me to make him some fingerless gloves just like Ash on Pokemon. I'm using the knucks pattern from Knitty to make them for Christmas. Since I don't want him to see them, I have to knit in secret. So he sees the shawl, but not the gloves. I can't post pictures here because while he won't read the blog, if he sees pictures, he's going to ask questions! Anyway, I've got 4 fingers done in secret so far. And now that we are home, back to the shawl.
Happy Knitting - Dfly

It's a pattern from Lion Brand. Homespun Diamond Knit Shawl in Barrington. The color in my picture is more accurate than the Barrington picture on Lion Brand site. Purple with random yellow and turquoise running through. It's about 6" tall right now (just to give an idea of size)
In other news, we have updated pictures of Tiger the Kitten from Mojave Sis. We think he's a boy. Doesn't he have a pretty face? The kitties are still generally living under Sis' bed so that's the reason for the odd angle on the second one. She's got more pictures of the other kitties and Tiger playing, I'm guessing eventually she'll post.
P.S. Working on HP7, on page 691 so getting close. Actually I'm so close that I almost don't want to finish because then it will be done. :-(
P.S.2 I keep meaning to post this link that Kelly passed on to me. Girl knits Ferrari... http://www.geekologie.com/2007/07/girl_knit_herself_a_ferrari.php
