I am on the run down to finishing with my Sophora hat by Woolly Wormhead. Just 20 rows to go. I originally started it as the MKAL in November but had to stop because of my knitting injury. It’s a really lovely pattern and I’ve enjoyed it. I can’t believe I’m saying this but I quite like knitting on small circulars – they aren’t so heavy.
Thank you for all your suggestions about how to deal with my coffee dunked bunny leg… I have to be honest and say that I just couldn’t bear to knowingly dunk 100% alpaca and Kidsilk Haze in coffee. Luckily it doesn’t seem to be obvious and The Snail of Happiness pointed out that bunnies are naturally different colours so it’s ok if this one is too! Here’s proof:
As you can see Flora (the white one) looks like her ears and face have been dunked in coffee! Ollie is the most glorious shades of grey. (Frankly the best kind of shades of grey there is! 😉). I’ve just been out to give them a bedtime carrot crunchie and had some bunny kisses. 💜
Betty (as she is now to be called courtesy of Sewchet) should be finished by the weekend.
Now to less lovely things. Thanks for asking about the interview. I’m afraid I didn’t get the job. I don’t mind as it seems to me that the job I thought I was applying for clearly wasn’t the job on offer. I have to be honest and say it wasn’t a good interview as I struggled with some of the questions asked. I’m not looking to justify my failure here but I did my research into the role and company really carefully and I know I was prepared for every item detailed on the job spec. I also read up on government policy in the area. However I wasn’t asked any questions about my own abilities but questions about risks to the industry; how I thought the company would need to adapt and so on: all knowledge based questions They’d seen my CV and knew I was looking to move into a different area, not coming from within their industry. No questions about how I could cope with change or integrate or even how I would do the job. I could have learned the stuff they asked me but they couldn’t have had a strong idea of who I am. Just what I don’t know! They also said that my involvement in politics was a problem… My entire CV is politics based! If it was a problem then I’m surprised I got an interview! I’ve been offered feedback, which I’ve accepted and when that happens I will also feedback. 😉 So, onwards in the job search! And thank you all for being great friends. 💚
