I've had a good few days meeting all of the new folks that I will be working with as well as talking to the old folks who are also based here. During each of the 4 meetings I have had so far the same question was asked....
"So when are you moving here to Zurich?"
To which I gave a rather vague and convoluted answer with long run-ons and slight pauses....basic gist of my answer was that I can not move right now due to personal reasons, but that I would still consider moving if my personal situation (the BF can not move) was cleared up.
As for the crafting, I am in the process of making another hat. This one the Basket Weave hat found also on Kody May's site: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/brother-in-law-basket-weave-hat
I am using Gedifra Airmix in a charcoal gray for my boyfriend after he complained the other day that I was always making things but never anything for him. If he loses it (he has a habit of losing things, including a sweater I gave him and one of my umbrellas (thankfully a cheap 2€ one) I will probably strangle him..... I can see the headlines now "American strangles boyfriend for losing his hat"......do you think I can make a long chain and attach it to his coat like people do with children and their mittens?
I'm also working on some more coasters and the lantern potholder, hopefully some more finished items soon!
I am going to be visiting the yarn store here in Zürich Saturday.....I'm going to try not to buy anything, but I've never bought yarn here before! So perhaps just a little bit! =)
