It's almost fall!

It has been really cool here in the mornings, and today was the first day that there was that undertone of chill in the air all day long. I know Albuquerque's high was in the 80s, but there was that slight edge... Fall is almost here!

Which is why I'm so freaking obsessed with yarn right now. In my mind, fall is knitting season. Alas, fall is also school season, and the two seem to be mutually exclusive right now.

We're knee deep in OCI scheduling (that's On Campus Interviews, for the non-law people). I applied with 6 NM firms and am waiting to hear if I get interviews with all of them. I also applied with a couple other firms that were asking for resumes (San Antonio, New York, and big labor firm with offices pretty much everywhere but here.)

According to the NY City firm, my resume is "rather impressive" and has been passed on to their recruiting department. Hmm. I'll try NYC for a summer! It'd be worth it just to be in the same city as Purl, School Products, Habu, The Yarn Co, String.... I do kinda miss the east coast right now...

I'm a retired newspaper columnist/editor from El Paso but moved to Dallas 10 years ago.
Just found three skeins of Katia COTOLAN. Made a shawl for a friend several years ago but cleaned out my cedar chest today and found KC.
WHAT WEIGHT YARN IS IT?
DO YOU HAVE A PATTERN FOR THREE SKEINS OF KC?
I am PAM22@sbcglobal.net

Good luck in OCI! I just went through the bulk of it myself. I'm not sure how it is in NM, but here in CA, they all seem to ask the same questions. I'm sure you've already thought of answers to these, but...

1. Why our firm?
2. Why law school?
3. What makes you special?
4. Favorite classes?
5. Areas of interest? You can specify one, but have to sound open to all.

If I had had answers to some of these ahead of time, I think I would have done better!
