About 2 weeks ago (before I came down with pneumonia, which, by the way, I have recovered from) I got a really cool phone call from the proprietress of my local Knit shop, Mountain Knits. She called to offer me a job! I accepted! And then I had to cancel my first day of work when the diagnosis came down. Oh well, it's a small town and she's a friend, so all was understood.
Anyway, yesterday was my first day!
It's just a few hours a week, but it's a dream job!
I sit here on a little sofa and knit, and I hop up and help people when they come in. I talk about their projects and different fibers and patterns and then I go back to knitting when they leave.
It's a perfect little get-away. Like "Me Time," but without the guilt.
