I'm sure I've said this, but the main thing that keeps me from blogging when I haven't been blogging is the guilty obligation I feel about "catching up". So don't blink, This will be quick.
Have I been knitting? I remember knitting. I don't remember what, really.
Taught Kadin how to knit.
He's a work in progress. He was happy to sit and watch me knit, I cast on ten stitches for him. Listened as he repeated "In, awound, unda, off", then watched him pull off the stitches (see them in the lower right?) and commence to beating the yarn with the needles. This is where the love starts. I'm sure of it.
Gotten some ice and snow.
Done some spinning.
I am really loving my new Journey Wheel. What a beautiful piece of engineering. It actually comes with a warning asking engineers not to take it apart. It's that enticing. And it spins like a dream. I know there are some of you out there who don't want to use this, because you don't want to want it. Seriously, don't do that to yourself, Heather. Just don't.
Ok, caught up? Great.
So, my job is changing. I've got a great job. If you know me IRL, you know this. I work in the yarn industry, and it's a good life. That's as specific as I'm going to get.
My job is moving down south, and I'm not planning on moving with it. Yes, it's a bummer. I'm going to miss talking to people about yarn and patterns all day. I'm not sad though. It's time to go back to school. This is the open door and kick in the ass I need. And do you know what? Knitting is going to be my hobby again. Hobby. It will be something I do to relax. Not something I break down in my head (although that's a useful task) and do quickly to help with pattern questions. Hobby. It's sounds like a fantastic luxury.
Don't cry for the woman who has just been put on her path again. Don't cry for the woman who just got to have a wonderful job for over a year. It wouldn't make sense.
So, that's all I can think of for now, but I'll be back. Chris just repaid my domain :D
