It is Really Green

I finally got my dining room painted. I went with green but did not anticipate it looking like a ripe avacado. I think it will grow on me just like the new hair color did. The picture does not really show how green it is.

I have some trim to paint and some touch up but other than that I should be ready to put up the drapes and new light (yet to be purchased) by this weekend.It has only taken almost a year. It was time to get it done. Now on to the next room.

Friday is my last day on my current contract. I have been on this one for 7 months. Now it is time for something else. Anybody got BA or Tech Writer job openings where you work. If so, let me know and if you would like to submit my resume for a referral. I know most companies offer from $500 to $1000 for a referral hire.

On the knitting front here is the summer shell ready to do the neck and armhole stitches. Hope to have it finished in time to start my sweater for ravelryolympics on Friday.

My other WIP is ...drum roll please....a shawl. The Luna Moth shawl to be exact. This shawl does not require the use of markers so I thought it was right up my alley. I do use markers when it is absolutely necessary but I perfer not to use them if I can. They seem to get in the way for me, especially if there are YOs involved. I am almost finished with the first repeat so will see how it goes. I am using my Noro sock yarn so I am anxious to see how the colors work out. Stay tuned and you will have the opportunity to see the color changes also.

Well, that should catch me up, blog wise.

I love the Luna Moth Shawl and the lovely yarn you're using to make it. I think you'll end up with a gorgeous shawl. Hope a new contract comes in for you soon. Fingers crossed.
