My first week of work was great, but at night I was so exhausted. I'm still getting in the groove of 45 minutes of traffic, but I'm lucky to have found a design related 8-4:30 job! Unfortunately I also discovered my car needs a new radiator this weekend, and we've been busy getting things set up to get it fixed. After 10 hours of Andrew working at it, it's all new! I'm lucky also to have a boyfriend that enjoys working on cars.
Hopefully, as I get settled in with work stuff I will be able to juggle my blog and apartment hunting a lot better than I have the past week. Here are the photos from the process of my cards and blanket.

|I didn't have a square envelope so I made some special ones|
|I fastened them together with an eyelet and they opened in opposite directions|

Thanks to these websites I was able to knit my very first Hemlock Doily Throw. I was very happy how it turned out, and am excited to make another, but bigger.
