durham_knits: (battle)

The first post in a long time... I suppose I don't have much to do these days, being unemployed, so I'll start up this again, this time as a whining/knitting blog. Might as well, eh?

I need a job. I need one badly. At least something to get me out of the house a few days of the week. Sitting, watching tv, and knitting can only take someone so far before they get horrifically bored. The only problem? There's very little to do with an MA in Middle Eastern Studies in Durham, NC. If anyone has any brilliant ideas, or knows someone who knows someone... I'm now that desperate. Time to go visit the local bookstores and beg for work.

A good side effect of the no working is all the knitting I've been doing. Since moving down to NC, I've made myself a new sweater, Scott got new socks, I donated a purse to a charity auction, and I'm making 4 more to try to sell at a craft fair. I'm also making a baby sweater for Kei, my cousin's new baby. I have a one pound bag of purple, grey, and white 100% cotton that will soon become a (or several) new market bags because the Harris Teeter ones just aren't pretty to look at like the ones from whole foods, but I feel weird toting around bags for rival grocery stores. Besides, everyone can use more lovely tote bags.

Also, my house seems to have become infested with flies. I'm not unclean. We take the trash out daily, we don't leave food out. SIGH. Any thoughts on getting rid of common houseflies? It's getting annoying, and poor half-blind Kit can only kill so many. Layla just plays with them until they get away again.
