A YOP Post Week 21



At least *I think* we are starting week 21..


So I was laid off of work on the 11th and that explains why I wasn’t up to posting last Sunday.  I also didn’t much feel like knitting this week.  Or rather I did but I was busy resume writing, LinkedIN updating, applying for unemployment -on advice of several people who told me that job hiring tends to be on hold during holiday season, and applying for jobs as well.  I haven’t heard back at all from those.  Not even a thank you for applying auto response.

A thing about me is that I really like shopping when I am feeling a bit blue.  I don’t think this is particularly unusual although I realize it is not the best reaction to anything, negative or positive.  Still my inner magpie likes something new and shiny and pretty on a semi-regular basis and I have had an overwhelming desire for nail polish.  Other than yarn, cosmetics totally snag me in and just like yarn, I will never, ever get through all my nail polish or lipstick or perfume.

This weeks picture is more nail polish than knitting.  I finished the first sleeve and despite my gauge reading as being seriously off the finished sleeve matches schematic.  I am almost done with the second sleeve and I shot a picture of my nail polish which was kinda matched my little kitty cat stitch marker and my lopi yarn.  I will not be finishing this sweater this month as I had hoped but que sera, sera.

  1. Elka- Stuff happens, and I’m sure something will come up.

    My gosh, it is amazing what a new lipstick will do. I am a MAC and Urban Decay addict!

  2. I’m so sorry about the job, I’m sure something will come up and things will look up again. Nail polish isn’t a bad vice and that one is gorgeous.

  3. I’m sorry you got laid off. But you’re being so proactive! Good for you. And yes, new nail polish is a must. I like yours; it’s like the outside of a special egg. Hugs to you.

  4. Being laid off is rough. Hopefully, somethimg will come along very soon for you. Enjoy your nail polish! Yournsweater 8s almost there too.

  5. A little bit of what you fancy does you good. Sorry to hear about the job loss. That is so not fun at anytime of year, but even worse at this season. I hope something turns up for you soon. I’ll keep all of my fingers and toes crossed for you, and glitzy painted.

  6. So sorry that you got laid off. I hope you are able to find a job you love, and soon. And if a bottle of nail polish makes you smile in the midst of a tough situation, it seems not a bad thing to me! 🙂
