I am no longer an unemployed bum!!!

On a fluke I ended up getting a job at one of the very cool LYS's in the area. As you all know, I was wrapping up my last sock class on Sunday HERE. And as I was leaving, the shop owner, Christina, said "good luck in school. Make sure to come and visit...yadda yadda."

Now I have been wondering where I am going to work while in school. FIDM requires all students to work a part time job within the field of their study. So for a fashion design student that pretty much means retail, or peon gopher in a design atmosphere. My main requirement was to work on this side of the Bay, & not commute to the city for both work & school.
So, back to Sunday.... When Christina mentioned school, it dawned on me to ask if she was still hiring (I had remembered seeing an email on the yahoo group for AP about help wanted). To my luck, she was still hiring. So we chatted about hours, days of week, I asked when I could bring a resume by.... yadda yadda. I swung by there this morning, & by lunch time I was employed!!
It's been over two years since I have worked (the injury, I am not a bum for no good reason)!! I am sooooo excited to be back in the swing of life! And what better place for a textile, color addict to work than a yarn store!

I will still be loyal to my hometown LYS! I love that shop, and the owner, and the Wednesday night knit togethers, and the gals that attend. No one yarn shop can satisfy all my needs!

Well, I have some serious loafing to do this week before I rejoin the working class! So I am off to the cafe to sip some iced tea, & knit in the sun!


  1. Congrats on your new job! Somehow I think you'll be bringing home yarn instead of paychecks

  2. Oh How Cool is THAT !!!
    Boy .. You get to " Fondle" all that yarn and get Paid for it too :)
    Good for you Tammy! :)

  3. Tammy - such good news for you. Just remember you need to bring home at least part of your paycheck!

  4. Congratulations!!! I'm so happy for you! Wow, a LYS? I'm so jealous!

  5. Congrats on the new job... And the offer on the second. :o)

  6. That's really great! Congratulations!

  7. Tammy, I am SO happy for you. I wish my lys was hiring - but I'll work at Michaels for now. :O)

  8. I would love to work in my LYS but I would still be in debt to them and probably more so! Congrats on the job. I like your blog. Stephanie
