Playing Catch-Up

That's all I seem to be trying to do lately. Catching up on work, catching up on knitting, catching up on life...

Work
My staff and I were reorganized last week. We've all still got jobs, but the reporting relationships have changed. Now I've got to help them work on a transition plan. Of course, I've still got to get my own work done as well. The next few weeks should be fun.

Knitting
I haven't started any new projects, which is a good thing for me at this point. I've been making steady progress on the Vesper sock. It's funny--when I started these socks, I didn't try to match the stripe at the start. I just assumed that they would be fraternal socks, and that was OK with me. Well, look at how the legs matched up:


Not too bad, really. However, once I got into the heel flap, my socks true DNA began to show:


Definitely fraternal twins. It will be interesting to see have the foot stripes up. Even with the differences, I still love them so...

Life
Well, some big doings here. After weeks of offers and counter offers, it looks Jim and I will be taking possession of this around April 15th:


Our very own home in Vermont! It's 5 miles down the road from the apartment he's currently living in. It needs quite a bit of work, but we both really love it. Just look at the light in this living room:


Perfect for an afternoon of knitting, don't you think?

With the work we need done on it, I'm going to have to curb my yarn buying. Bummer. But on the plus side, I can probably live off my yarn stash for quite a while.

Actually, no "probably's" about it. There's enough yarn for a winter's worth of socks! Trust me...

Do you think the snow will be gone by April 15th? LOL

Love the socks (did you try the "improved" SSK?); love the house. You failed to mention that you've been sick, to boot; hope you're feeling better!
