I finished up the prettiest hot pad ever (TPHPE) yesterday... here is a pic of it on the blocking board:
I think I'm going to give this to my grandma, she is a knitter too and I think she'll really appreciate its beauty.
I'm also making progress on my yet-to-be-named original sock pattern. Observe:
In related news, I'm going to be unemployed for a little while, so I will have lots of time to knit this week. Yay! (FYI: In case you were wondering why I'm unemployed so often, it's not cause I'm a spaz and get fired all the time... lol. I am a contract worker, which means I travel to different companies working on a project-by-project basis, so when projects wrap up, I'm unemployed until the next one comes along.)
