pinch me!

Exciting news! After a year and a half of working at a job that never really fit me, I had an awesome interview on Tuesday morning & a job offer Tuesday afternoon. I now work for a yarn company.

I know, right?

I'm officially closing the book on the book industry!(harhar!) I won't go into too much detail of my new job because A) I haven't actually started yet and B) I'd like to keep my blog separate from my 'real-life'. But know this - I am CRAZYEXCITED! GAah!

I've been such a bad blogger - I've received so much great stuff in the mail over the past 2 weeks & haven't blogged about any of it! I also have little-to-no progress to show you on my current projects. My second thermal sleeve is almost to my elbow, the body of the Tangled Yoke Cardigan is about 8" long, my second 'I heart Gansey' sock is almost to the heel flap, I finished the first sock of a pair for my father's christmas present & I cast on for the beeeeeee-oooo-tiful Hemlock Ring blanket (also for christmas presents). And not a picture to show.

This weekend marks the first (hopefully) annual Winer Thanksgiving Wasaga Weekend - most of my aunts & uncles & cousins have all rented cottages at a resort & we'll be celebrating Thanksgiving up there. I am so excited to be spending this time with my family, and even more excited to just get away from the city for a little bit. I've been working so much lately - this will be a welcomed break from it all.

And *hopefully* I'll come home with a finished Thermal sleeve!

I've only recently found your blog, but had to say congratulations. Sounds like a great job. Also. I love the MSPaint Mondays.

You're livin' the dream sister! Congratulations!

Gee, I was feeling pretty good about my new job until you reminded me that operating rooms don't have anything to do with yarn. Congratulations, that's totally exciting.

Personally, I think you should be an MSPaint artiste with an obscenely high income befitting your talent, but failing that-- being in yarn is pretty darn good, eh? Congrats!
