I have returned! with actual finished things!! These are the Thuja socks I made for my mum. They came out a wee bit short, but she assures me they are wonderful anyway. Mums are great, aren't they?
I have finished my first two weeks of training at Anonycorp Call Centre. So far I have learnt not to sexually harass people, not to defraud the company, and about a bazillion arcane codes and regulations.
There have also been entertaining videos, including the old favourite: how not to injure yourself in the workplace, and an enthusiastic American dude, with Donald Trump hair, explaining why selling stuff to the customer is good for them. I have finished my opal petticoat socks just in time to wear for goodluck as I take my first calls tomorrow.
I have been kinda tired and haven't got a lot of knitting done, but there has been some stash enrichment (it's not sock yarn, so that's ok right? right..?) Unfortunately my dodgy monitor lied to me. What I thought was a lucious raspberry red was in fact a putrid pink of the one exact shade I HATE!! So if any one wants two skeins of pink Cascade 220, as shown on the right below, please let me know. First in, first served.
ETA: The cascade has found a home. Thanks, Katt!
