Fortune's Wheel

Remember how my last post was all about me moving to Austin, TX? Within a few days of writing that post we had a sudden reversal in all of our up-in-the-air plans. Mr. B had an interview on Friday and within hours he received a phone call with a verbal job offer IN SEATTLE. With the three day weekend he's still waiting on the formal paperwork but we're fairly certain that this will all work out in our favor since they want him to start work this week. Excited? You betcha. Relieved? That too. While I'm interested in Austin, the idea of planning a cross-country move right after Little A starts kindergarten (can you believe it?) and after I finally got settled into my newish job was more stressful than anything else. I'm happy to stay in Seattle and be able to plan a move in several years with purpose rather than because we have to. 

But let's talk about knitting!

My knitting group had a stash swap/sale and Jeanne gave me two 50 gram skeins of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in December Ribbon Candy. I cast on for Simple Skyp Socks and enjoy the way the yarn is striping. 

I also have a cardigan on the needles for my podcast's new KAL - Cardi Party KAL - that starts tomorrow! This is the very beginning of Pretty (me) by Nadia Cretin-Lechenne in Neighborhood Fiber Co. Studio Sport. The color is Del Rey and it's a delight to knit. 

Thank you so much for all of the kind words about our almost big move! I have my fingers crossed that everything works out as anticipated and we'll able stay in Seattle for the next few years. Wish us luck!
