Congrats!! And whew.


I'm glad the anxious job moments are over for you!
If you do knit the cabled jacket, will you use the recommended Ultra Alpaca? I was wondering, since it does have regular wool in it, not merino wool. It is a little scratchy at first, but softens up after washing.


Yay!!! The bureaucratic idiots didn't drive a good one away!!!! I'm so happy for you. I just got my new certificate in the mail yesterday. I was adding a new area based on a Praxis score and experience and I was nervous about it (I'm used to screw ups and red-tape), but now it's official. I'm even "highly qualified" according to the powers that be!
I guess I'll have to find a copy of that book somewhere to find out why the softest yarns pill the worst.


Cool, glad the job situation is all sorted out.

I liked the Book of Yarn quite a bit too. I happen to enjoy trying various fibers and cotton isn't my favorite, although I do knit with it. It's a good book that I think a lot of knitters can benefit from.
