Various Bits of News (Adriana)

I have various bits of news to share today. For one, I am done school! (Well, sort of.) I'm done the classroom portion and I am one week into my second placement. This one is at the local museum and is very promising. I will be learning a lot about marketing, PR, event planning, and fund raising. I'm very excited about it.

Another piece of news: I am officially dropping out of Mission Possible 2008. I was totally into it until I got sick. A month later, I am just not feeling the love for these projects, and really, what's the point of knitting if you're not having fun.

I have been inspired by Phoe who blogged every day for the month of May. There is no way I could manage a full month of daily blogging (not to mention the logistics are impossible since I'll be out of town for half of June) but I would like to try to blog every day for a week. Today is day 1.

I didn't finish my final essay for school until near the end of last week so I haven't had much time for knitting lately, but I have been strangely monogamous to one project for what little knitting time I've had:
knee socks
This is Regia Kaffe Fassett sock yarn that my brother gave me for Christmas. I thought it would make perfect knee socks so I got an extra ball. I'm trying to figure out the math to keep them matching perfectly while maximizing yardage.

I couldn't stay monogamous for too long and I started a new project last night, but I'll hold off on showing it for another day (I don't know what I'm going to have to talk about for 7 straight days).

One last bit of news, for those of you on Ravelry I have changed my username. I was never really happy with aphrodidee. I picked it in a hurry in my excitement to get on Ravelry. I've been trying to come up with a new name for the past couple of months but nothing felt right. Last night Pete and I were watching the movie Clue and inspiration struck me. I love that movie. I used to watch it over and over again with my friend Calli. I can still recite parts of it along with the characters (which Pete tolerates). Anyways, to make a long story short ("too late!") my new username on Ravelry is MissScarlet.

I think that's it for now. See you tomorrow!

I love and adore Clue. I got Mr F into it and now we both quote the film to each other. :) Miss Scarlet always was my favorite character too.

Great socks! I look forward to a week of posting. :)

Those socks look great! I aspire to make knee socks someday, but I'm too lazy to do math and gauge swatches and all that.
Clue is a great movie. I loved Madelein Kahn. "I hated her so much....flames, flames on the side of my face." Awesome.
