Big changes…no knitting
Well, the past week and a half have been crazy. I just closed the deal on a new job and I can’t tell you how excited I am. Some of you know, I have been miserable at my current job and have been looking for an escape route for awhile now. Well, the perfect opportunity came up and I jumped at it. So what does this new job offer? Higher salary, better benefits, better opportunities for advancement, paid parking, paid cell and Blackberry, tons of paid vacation and…it’s PET FRIENDLY. I could bring Audrey to work with me…which is just too cool for school. I’m so happy I could spit. (Hmm…that sounds grosser than I meant it to sound.) And hey, more money means more yarn. And everyone knows that I need MORE yarn! *snort*
That said, the one thing about my current job is all of my fellow peons are just the greatest people. I’m going to miss so many people intensely. Thankfully, I’ve made good enough friends that we’ll hang out socially either way. But for the co-workers reading this – I love you guys. Don’t feel abandoned. I’d take you all with me if I could.
In knitting news, I’m uninspired by my current projects on the needles. The Lace Leaf shawl has stalled, Ene is a frustrating knit because of my needles, Babby Bobbi Bear hasn’t graduated beyond the tube stage yet, socks are in the boring stages and Klaralund seems to be lost in the stash somewhere. So what’s a girl to do?
Swatch for Katy
I have a TON (20 balls!!!) of Jaeger Shetland Aran and I figure with all of the cables, Katy would be a great project to eat up some of that yarn. I think the cables show nicely and I’m pleased with the softness of the swatch. I need to sign up for a finishing class before I get too into it though. My seaming skills are severly lacking.
Hey, where do you Seattle area knitters meet up. I think it’s time from me to come out of my e-Knit world and meet up with real people. 🙂
