Thank you all for your good thoughts - it's so nice to be able to get it off your chest, and receive wonderful words of encouragement in return. Though Friday my work life got a bit worse, my weekend was wonderful and surprisingly restful. One of the main reasons? I started a new job.
No, I didn't quit teaching - I added a part-time job. Before you think I'm nuts, you should know that it's at my LYS. Yep - I get to hang out with yarn once a week, for a whole day! I'm excited, but the job is bittersweet - my dear friend, and fellow knitter Jen is moving to Boise, and I'm sort of taking her job. I wish it were under different circumstances.
Combine a crappy week with a day at the yarn store, and what do you get? Purchases, of course!
Enough Nashua Ecologie Cotton to make the Surplice Lace Top (the one I blogged about here),
and a yummy new Lexi Barnes bag.
Expect more purchases to follow soon......
In other news, my ball of orange Andean Silk arrived today - off to try to finish up Hourglass!
Oh - and it did snow Saturday! Nothing stuck, but there were big fat flakes falling from the sky on and off for a few hours - very bizarre!
