February Already???

I can't believe it's February already. I start a new job tomorrow. I'm excited and nervous at the same time. It's not a job that I applied for I was chosen for the position and it's a promotion so that is definitely a good thing. I think I'm going to have a busy February and most likely a busy year. I'm not complaining, with the way the economy is and all the recent layoffs around the world I'm definitely happy to be gainfully employed.

On the knitting front I'm working on a February Lady Sweater for my grandmother's birthday. I have to get a move on because her birthday is the 8th. For myself I purchased some Dream in Color Classy to make Francis Revisited (Ravelry link).

I'm not sure what color I'm going to use between the Absolute Magenta and Chinatown Apple. I'm leaning toward the Magenta. I also started a Knit-along on Ravelry that begins on Ground Hog's Day to make the Cozy Cable Socks (Ravelry link). I can't wait to cast on the cables are gorgeous.

I'm addicted to socks again. When I first started knitting I had a sock project in my purse at all times. They kept me company at many long waits in the doctor's office. Latley I've been tempted to pull them out when I sit for hours in traffic. Like my 3 hour drive to work last week during our big snow storm. I have to figure out how to get a driver to take me back and forth to work so I can use that time to knit. LOL!!! As my grandmother would say " In my wild and crazy dreams".
