back in the chain gang

i am back. and being back pretty much means working. i started the new job which is coaching a group of middle eastern women and men out on the job market (again) on friday and i am sure i am going to love it. it is allowed to do all kind of things even teaching them to knit. and i am already loving it. there is a turkish woman who i have decided is going to provide me with a few chart. right now they all feel poorly and think of themselves as sick. i guess we will have to change the discourse.

and the aran is very close to be an fo. i really didn't understand the pattern at first but i am learning by doing. this is the magic about meg and elizabeth's patterns.

i joined a valentine swap at ravelry i will post pictures later. i got some really lovely malabrigo. i have heard so much of this yarn and it is lovely finally being able to fondle it. that is what it is all about.

expect knitting here in the near future.

Sounds like a cool job. And turkish charts sound wonderful.

Can't wait to see the aran all finished!

I'm looking forward to seeing your Aran! I'm glad you like your new job. What a bonus to have an excuse to knit and teach knitting at WORK!
