I finally got some rechargeable batteries for my camera, so I'm able to bring you the following FO shot:
This is Josephine which I knit using Queensland Cotolino that I purchased 50% off at Lori's Frames, Fibers and Frills in Alpine. The gauge of the yarn is DK, but the pattern calls for sportweight, so I had to make a different size. It seemed to work out well. I totally lived on the edge in terms of running out of yarn. In fact, I got so freaked about it that I used a coordinating yarn for the neckline trim just in case. It matched the ribbon that I used for the tie, so it actually looks cute. The pattern calls for the tie to made out of yarn, but since I was low on yarn, I decided to go with a ribbon. I also altered the proportions of the pattern so that the tie hit me immediately below the bustline so it would be more flattering. I'm very happy with how this pattern turned out - I've already worn it a couple of times!
Since then, I've also finished my Something Red, but have no finished photos. I ended up being really happy with how it turned out, so I'll get some FO shots at some point.
On a personal note, this has been a good week for me career-wise. I got two job offers! I'm so thrilled because I've been interviewing for a couple of months already. I haven't totally decided, but I think I'm going to end up working at General Atomics Aeronautical Systems. Also, Joe has an interview next week at Northrop Grumman, so fingers crossed for him. I picked out two outfits for him to wear. I picked through piles and piles of discounted shirts and ties at the Nordstrom Rack and I think I did really well. There was a lot of ick there. Which one do you like best?
