This job means several things, including the fact that I will actually be making a somewhat reasonable (ok, freakin' fantastic for a grad student!) salary this year! Which in turn means several other things:
1. I won't have to work any more icky factory jobs over the summer.
2. I'll have extra $$ when we go to Korea next spring (more on that later).
3. I'll have extra $$ for YARN! So I don't have to feel so guilty about my purchases the other day...
And there's lots of other good things, like no longer worrying that we'll have to eat KD (That's Mac&Cheese for my American readers) for a week at the end of the month... but I digress.
In knitting news, I just received my buttons for the buttony sweater and they are AWESOME. As soon as I get the extra yarn needed to finish up the second sleeve and I sew them on I will share. I ordered them on Etsy from Woodturner and his craftmanship and customer service was beyond amazing. He'll custom make wooden buttons for you in the size, wood, etc that you want. I can't say enough about how great these are. I will share pictures later!!
