Richland is large enough to have some good food and fun things to do, but definitely small enough to maintain that 'small town charm'. I mean, the hotel where I'm staying gives you a key. A metal key.
When was the last time you saw that happen? The people at the lab are helpful and friendly, again, it's that small town charm feeling. I could foresee working here on a more permanent basis...
I finished my test knit over the weekend. Check it:
I received much praise from the copilot when I donned it for the picture-possibly because it's the first garment I've knit for myself that doesn't fit like a gunny sack or a sausage casing. I'm pumped to wear it. It was also fun to be able to automatically get clarifications and give the designer my feedback. My last tester for the Infinite Cabled Hat is just wrapping up, just waiting for the survey. I've finished all the corrections, now I just need some good photos...this and the layout are the hardest parts for me (if I was a REAL designer, I'd have peeps that I could delegate these things out to). I've already signed up for another test knit; I'm finding I really enjoy having the deadline. Now to find US 2&1/2 needles (I didn't know such a thing even existed).
Speaking of deadlines, still plugging away on the Mystery Wedding Project...SO..MUCH..GARTER STITCH.
