Rainboom sock yarn from Zomari Dyelabs and I'm loving it. It looks like a rainbow/black sock in this photo but it's really more of a gun metal gray. The distribution of the rainbow colors is really pleasing and I love the yarn base. I'm looking forward to wearing this pair. I'm also knitting steadily on my Dark and Stormy, as it's now my designated Rhinebeck sweater. I haven't been to Rhinebeck in years and my friends and I are going this year so I need a new sweater. Plus, this sweater will be perfect for me to wear at school.
This new job has generated at least one unexpected expense. I had to go buy a new wardrobe. My last job required me to wear workout gear and I finally got myself all outfitted for it this summer, only to change jobs and wind up with no appropriate clothing for my new job. Technically, jeans are allowed but it's pretty hot in my classroom so I needed something other than jeans and tees. I ended up hitting Old Navy's Labor day sale and getting several pairs of cropped pants and a variety of light weight blouses and knit shirts that should do the trick. I'm also adjusting to being able to wear a watch, and jewelry, and being able to have my hair down. This is a while new world in which I'm allowed to dress like a girl.
