something to show

I've regressed into hermitude since my Christmas job ended a month ago, and have been unable or unwilling to come up with some kind of constructive routine. Basically, I've been sleeping, playing with GoodReads, reading, knitting, eating, watching Sherlock, washing and de-pilling my handknits, and spending enough time on Pinterest that I learned how to make a sock bun. Is it any wonder society finds me unemployable? Perhaps not. So I did have two days of casual work, which is better than none. And I have a job interview tomorrow that I've been studying for. If I think about it, I have been doing things - but imagine what I could have accomplished if I actually kept myself busy. My goal this week will be to do more than one productive thing every day :P

As it turns out, now is the time to do all the wedding things, so I've been working on that. Meeting the caterers, tasting food, ordering rings, tracking down essential bits of important paperwork in various languages - sounds more complicated than it was, thankfully. In addition to my shawl, which I'm knitting away at slowly, I've made some flowers for my hair. They need attachment to clips of some variety, but I'll figure it out. I followed this tutorial, and I'm pleased with how they turned out.

I also bought some wedding shoes, finally. I think they are kind of cute.

So. Progress.

  1. You are NOT unemployable. You are eminently employable, because you are a knitter. Seriously. Knitters have life skills like patience, delayed gratification, determination etc, that other people just don't have. Keep at it.

    Love your weddings shoes. They're very cute indeed.

    I echo what Miss M said too!

  3. My friend made me a little wall-hanging for Xmas that says "The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time." I think that applies here. :)
