Not a whole lot going on with the knitting, unfortunately. As some of you are aware, I have been job hunting for a bit now. I have also been planning to move to Maine (I'm in Michigan now) in February. My sister and her family are moving to Maine, my brother in law is in the Navy and they will be stationed there for three years. I figured I would head on out there too, why not keep them company for awhile. Well, last week I got a fantastic call for a job that fits my qualifications, and what I enjoy doing, to the proverbial 'T'. I had my phone interview and that was a great success. They are now making arrangements to have me flown in for a full round of face to face interviews. Flown in - to Texas! I looked at my new wool socks and started laughing. I am so going to have to re-think all of my knitting plans for 2006 if I move to Texas. I'm not complaining, I love to learn new things. I also love jobs that I enjoy so wish me luck!

OK, I think I'm the last blog on the internet to get tagged with the latest Meme thanks to the Knitting Hammy ....... She tagged me in public too so hiding is probably not going to work. I find her Chairman of the Bored entry quite amusing in conjunction and think the meme should be ammended to include 4 eccentricities like:
Now that tells you how much of a nut I may possibly be far more than what jobs I've had, now doesn't it? :) on to the meme.......
Four Places You Have Lived
Four Bloggers I am tagging : I think the internet is all out of victims, but if you missed out or think you escaped somehow, consider yourself tagged with the eccentricities included :) And leave a comment so we can come over to visit you!

I don't jump on too many bandwagons or join in every group that comes along, but sometimes I just luck into some that I can't resist. Two that have been calling to me lately are the 2000 Socks KAL that Amie is doing over at her blog Rose By Any. She challenged Amy over at Boogie Knits to finish all of her UFO socks by February. Between these two I got motivated to dust off my poor unfinished socks that have been sadly neglected. I didn't mean to neglect them but I just lost my Tiny Needle Mojo for awhile. I don't know what was up but after I turned the heel on these puppies I kept knitting tighter, and tighter, and tighter - and it was awful. It hurt to knit these silly socks and I couldn't figure out what I was doing differently. So they ended up in the bottom of the knitting basket, footless and haunting. After the Amie/y's rousing motivational posts I dug the little guys out and low and behold my Mojo was back!! I still don't know what happened but I'm glad it is over and my Tiny Needles are flying effortlessly once again. Now they just need some toes and a little luv and they will be all set.

I had some questions on the yarn and colors that I am using for this project. The yarn is Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift from Two Swans Yarns in the following colors:
