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.
