More Chances to Knit!

I may have mentioned that I had an interview for a permanent job that had been scheduled long before the contract job last week came up. I really liked the people, and even liked the funky location. Well, I got the call offering me that position today--love that quick service, so unlike the dozen or so other places I interviewed with. After carefully reviewing my options and weighing the high pay of contracting vs. the lack of having to interview over and over with the permanent medium-paying job, I decided to accept this one (imagine me 3/4 of the way up that tower, and enjoying the carillon bells every quarter hour--I'll always know the time!). I just wanted to share this non-knitting news so you'll know I will be under less stress soon, though maybe with less time to blog.

Wait, what am I saying? Of course there is a knitting connection to this new position. And a blogging one. I will probably take the bus to this job, since there's a park and ride place fairly near my house, and an express bus that drops off quite near the new job. What will I do during the nearly two hours of bus time each day?? Well, of course I will KNIT. Just like the famous bloggers! And some of the buses have wifi. Hey, I can blog then! Very trendy, huh. University employees get free rides on the bus, which means I will save a LOT on gas. Well worth the time. I really hate stop-and-start driving, so will be happy to leave that to the bus driver.

I foresee making at least a bit of a dent in the sock yarn stash! WOO HOO.


  1. Congratulations!!! Can't wait to see all those new socks. ;-)

  2. Yay!!! Even though I work from home, I kinda wish I could just go sit somewhere and ride and knit for an hour each day. That's a pretty cool looking tower to work in!

  3. Congratulations on your new job! I have several friends who work at UT. The parking there sucks so be glad you will be riding the bus!

    2 hours of knitting time each day sounds heavenly. Enjoy!
