Look! Yarn!

Hey everyone. Today was the first day in a week that I've had an opportunity to sit down and blog. In this past week I made a big life change, took a quick trip up north to get some of The Book stuff done, and had a serious look at my yarn stash. I also have gone through everyone's future blog post suggestions and compiled a large list. I hope to get going on it when the big life change feels less overwhelming. So in the meantime, let's have a look at the skein of yarn I treated myself to yesterday. It's Malabrigo Sock in the Pocion colorway.

Edit: I wasn't really sure when or how to share this, but I might as well go ahead and say what the big life change is. It still feels weird, but I've given notice at my job so I can finish The Book and work on the companion shawl to Celestarium. I liked my job quite a bit, so it was a difficult decision. But it became very clear in the last week that I needed to make a choice between finishing The Book or continuing at work. There wasn't enough time to do both anymore. My last day of work will be on my birthday. I like my work enough that there isn't anywhere I'd rather be on my birthday.

I'm glad you told us what the big life change was. I was feeling worried! Congratulations on taking another step towards finishing your book. It will be good to have time to focus on it completely.

I can't wait to see the second Celestarium! I look up at the sky every night and wonder when I'll have that around my shoulders. I have the yarn ready and waiting... no pressure! ;) Thank you for designing it!!

PS: That is a cool photo. The yarn will make good socks. Or is it for a shawl?

That is very poetic to have your last day of work on your birthday closing a chapter in your life and the bright beginning of another. I am so excited to hear that you are working on the Book and the second Celestarium! I wish you all the best with your big life change!

Cute picture! And sorry to hear about the job, although, hopefully, the book will make up for it.

We will miss your presence at the store! It's cool you want to wrap things up on your birthday, and I still think it's neat you share the same birthday as my son (gee, that makes me feel really old).
