As I mentioned, I finally got a job! It's technically a temp. position, there is someone sick in the office, and she doesn't think she'll be back until the end of January. So I'm employed, but for the time being. Eeek!

I really thought the amount of time I spent knitting would go way down, and it has, but not as much as I thought. I knit at break and all through lunch so that's really nice. And I finally have something to finance all my yarn buying binges, wahoo! There is also someone in the office that knits, she's really fun. She's an older lady who magic markers her hair a different color almost everyday, so in other words, she's my kind of peeps.

I've been trying to squeeze in some Christmas knitting in between all the things I keep casting-on for myself (oops). So far I have about 25% of a scarf for my dad done. I'm not sure what I'm going to make everyone else. I tried making my mom some felted clogs, but that pattern seriously threw me and I quit. I think she's going to get some dishcloths or something. Alex will probably get some gloves, and Adam probably a hat and guitar strap. But we shall see!

I've been such a greedy knitter this winter, and with Christmas so close I should really get my act together!
