working with yarn?

OMG. J, my first/ and current weaving instructor, mentioned during last night’s workshop that Pendleton Woolen Mills is looking for a weaver with experience in Jacquard and design. I am SO applying for that position. I doubt I’ll get it, but it’s worth a shot. Weaving full-time, in Portland down the street from Powells and Knit/Purl? Oh, temptation.

Wish me luck. I’m filling out the application in just a mo’

Oh, I swatched this yarn for socks. 7 sts/inch on 2.5mm addis (rejoicing). I’m so pleased with myself right now :D

Maybe I’ll have CO the socks by tonight and have some more pix.
