I'm so excited

...I just can't hide it!

I am going to have a job. A real 9-5 job. And, it is all to do with yarn, knitting and designing. I should put an exclamation mark behind those three sentences, because I am going to get paid for what I like doing best!! I kind of start hyperventilating every time I think of it. Hand me the brown paper bag, please!

About my present knitting project: I am labouring under the delusion that I will be able to finish a lace shawl till October 11 when my husband is flying to Germany to attend a wedding. It's supposed to be a gift for the bride, should I be able to part with it, that is. If it wasn't for the new job and other things I have to knit, I might have been able to pull it off. I could also try to put aside sleeping for awhile, Halloween is coming up anyway, so the ghoulish look is in, dontcha think?


And now please excuse my excited self - eight of us, i.e. Montreal knitters, will be off tomorrow morning to the Sheep and Wool Festival in Vermont to have a little fun. You know, just the girls...and lotsa yarn and everything to do with it. We're gonna stay over night and will be back Sunday evening.

I hope you'll tell us more about the JOB. And that you can forego sleep in order to get the shawl done. Wish I cold have drifted up East to go to the festival... Aren't those fiber bearing animals somethng?
