I’ve got news….hmmm…which do you want to hear first?
How about sock news?
I can’t believe that I started this on Tuesday – and only have been working on it during my commute (I really love taking the train!). I’m ready to turn the heel – so I think I should have this done by the end of the weekend. And knitting this has reminded me how much I love Lorna’s Laces. After I knit the first sock, I bought a bunch of this yarn that I still have in the stash. I think I want to use it for the next pair of socks! I think I have solids – a red, and a green. Any ideas?
OK, want more news?
See the red star? That’s Seaport Yarn. I hear it is an amazing store. And guess what! Pretty soon I’ll be able to check it out myself very easily. Why? (you ask)….well, see the orange star? In a few weeks I’ll be working there….yes! I got a job offer today! I don’t want to say much yet because I haven’t a) accepted it formally and b) quit my current job. But wohoo! I’m very excited – it’s a great opportunity – great company, and although it is a slightly longer commute….when you commute 2 hours each way, another 20 minutes isn’t really that big of a deal. And there is just something about working in New York – I’m just beyond excited.
So tomorrow, I’ll accept the offer formally, and then on Monday I’ll resign. I’m going to take a week off between jobs so I can unwind, and recharge….I’m so excited! I wonder how many yarn stores are in the general area?
