I have been composing blog posts in my head for MONTHS! Because it has been at least that long since I have actually posted. I know that I've lost readers - like my mom who stopped checking ages ago - and I'm sure that so much has happened it would be impossible to share everything. So my comeback to the blog world is going to be quiet, and I'm not going to share all the stuff that I've knit since my last post. There are two things that I will touch on - Marriage (hi, husband! In case you ever check this) and my shawl. But I'm not going to do that today. Today, I'm just starting fresh.
I decided a week or so ago that I was completely sick of having beautiful yarn - of having it just sit there and me not use it. So I took my favorite thing that I've ever bought, and I started it. So far, this is what I have.
At the beginning of the year, I started a new job. A job where I will no longer travel. A job with the company that I've worked with for 8 years. A job where I actually have to be in my office, which is in my house, and not at a coffee shop or the library. So I decided that I should probably have a comfortable office. My office was in my basement, which was fine. The basement is finished, and there is carpet, and, now that we have a door on the basement, is warm. But its not convenient. And the desk that I had used to work for me, but wasn't going to work for the new job. The only other room I had in the house that would have worked for an office was being used by yarn. We moved all of that down to the basement and got my office set up in the former yarn room. But of course, we did it kind of willy nilly. So my Knitting Olympics project was to get all the willy nilly-ness of the yarn in the basement organized and lovely so that my craftyness could flourish. We're close. Very close. And by the end of the weekend, I should have an uber-awesome area for my yarn and other craft supplies. I should also have a sewing table, which thrills me to no end! Since we're not done making it awesome, no pictures just yet. Soon, though.
So that's it - my comeback. Nothing exciting. But expect more regular updates. I really think that since I'm home all the time, blogging should really be part of the schedule. There are exciting things happening in the world of a home office worker who knits. Seriously.
