Since today is the last day of my working season, I'll start the project off by being thankful for my wonderful supervisors and co-workers. While I do love 'playing with the money' at work, the people are what make the job so much fun. Without the fun people, the job would be a massive Hell hole.
Each year I've knit something small for our main supervisor & this year was no exception.
|Amber's Fingerless Gloves|
Sorry, Amber. I didn't crochet shark slippers. Instead, you're getting fingerless gloves to keep your hands warm while you read & cuddle with your cat. And, if you hate them, you can use them as rat sleeping bags. I'm pretty sure I remember you saying you have pet rats as well as a cat. That must be an interesting combination. Anyway.... I hope you enjoy the gloves. I've certainly enjoyed having you as a supervisor. You've not only been a great boss, but you handled all those 4:00 a.m. crisises like a pro. Congrats on a successful first season wearing the Supervisor shirt.
And then there's Jarrett. Jarrett is one of those crazy co-workers who has, on more than one occasion, almost made me pee in my pants from laughing so hard. I don't normally make anything for the co-workers, but I saw this hippo dish cloth and well....
|Hippo Dish Cloth|
It's a silly gift and my version doesn't even look much like a hippo but when I saw the pattern, I couldn't resist. There's a funny story behind the hippo thing, but I'm not going into details here. For one thing, just thinking about it makes me laugh too hard to type plus, it's a little rude. But, for the rest of my life, when ever I see a hippo, I will think of Jarrett.
So, thank you Amber & Jarrett and everyone else who has made this season such a fun success. I will miss you all and hope to see each of you again in the spring.
