Moving Right Along

…dugga dum, dugga dum.
Nice trip to Rhinebeck on Sunday with Cupcake. I TOTALLY missed the exit for the Taconic Pkwy and as I was passing Albany – realized I had gone too far. A bit of backtracking and we were there by 11. Had a great time perusing the barns, fondling roving and goggling at yarn and Baby Doll Sheep – They look like Ewoks! I want one! or two! We had a couple of good sammiches, crispy-cruchy onion rings, yum, and I only bought enough yarn for a scarf of my very own. I’m using Ms. Zimmerman’s Gull pattern for my first lace attempt.
I was a good girl and I had a great time. I only found two squares on my RBB card but I’m fine with that – it was the experience that counts. Nornspinner pulled in and parked right behind us when we got there and we ran into a bunch of other RBB players that were not on my card. Good, good times.

This is the Grumble’s new hat, sorta rastafarian – though not planned that way. She likes it, thats all that matters. Simple striped hat knit about 1/3 too big so I could go back with a smocking stitch, I liked making this one.

*sigh* I got a new job this week – I give my notice at the Mega-Bookstore today. For those of you wondering, I’ll be working here starting in two weeks! Whee!

  1. Yay! Yay! Yay! I am so happy for you! And for me! Discount by proxy! Just kidding. I am super happy for you though. It is SO GOOD to do a job that you like and that speaks to other areas of your life and your passions. You’re now one of the lucky ones.

  2. About knitting your first lace: I am in the process of knitting my first as well, and it’s awesome. Loving it.
    About your new job: I hate you and don’t want to be your bloggy friend anymore.
    (of course I kid…congrats to you!)

  3. Congrats on the new job! BE CAREFUL with your paycheck! Hazards of the job and all . . . :)

    It was great to see you this weekend at Rhinebeck, I wish I’d have had more time to chat. I didn’t get around much while I was there, but I had fun nonetheless.
