Yarn: Madeline Tosh Hand Dyed Yarn - Pashmina merino/silk/cashmere
Click on the pattern link to see how beautiful this shawlette can be especially if you are young and beautiful. My choice of yarn was expensive and disappointing. However, I still love the shawlette.
The photography and patterns at this site are superb, absolutely superb and "NeverNotKnitting" currently has a give-away of her 12 new patterns
I had my staff appreciation day. Lots of pics so I will let the pics speak for themselves. Lousy time of the day to hold a plate of food in one hand and try to keep the camera steady with the other hand. Go to the end to see why everyone is "clapping".
One of the many signs informing us of the food selection at the table ahead of us. Just couldn't get away from the "shadows".
Crowd just beginning to gather. There was a 3-piece jazz band for entertainment.
The university president was there to greet each and everyone of us and express his appreciation for a job well done.
The best Waldorf salad I've ever eaten.
Grilled hot dogs with a condiment bar nearby! (a little out of focus!)
Just some of the many hundreds of people in attendance.
The sky was so gorgeous!
And everyone is clapping because again this year, the university president announced that we were being given the week between Christmas and New Year's as paid vacation in addition to all our other wonderful benefits. Because we also get two paid holidays off before Christmas and two days at New Year's, this equals to two full weeks off.
I'm pretty fortunate to have a job with all these perks! I wish the same to all of you reading this that have jobs outside the home.
