Who the hell cares where she's been?
Yes, it's me again. Hello? Is there anyone there? I can hear the crickets chirping out there in the yonder. Well let's see.... where to begin...
I will just dive right in. I am taking a quarter off from school, and working more so that I can afford to go back to school. I took a second job at a very cool shop in downtown Oakland. It is called Entrez~Open House. (the shop has a myspace page withgreat photos... i caanot seem to get to it though. I am myspace crippled) It is a furniture, house wares, and accessories boutique like shop. The owner's name is Marie, and she couldn't be any sweeter, a joy to work for. Marie also has an interior decorating business. So this job, as you can imagine is right up my alley. The shop is gorgeous! It is set up like,... well, a house, a home. And each separate area maintains a specific color palette, and all of the merchandise in said area is only in that palette. I will take some photos and post. "yah yah", you say, "we'll never see any flippin photos! Who does she think she is kidding anyway?!" HAHA
I am still working at the yarn shop. We have more amazing and gorgeous yarn than you could shake a stick at... or maybe shake two sticks at... well then you would be knitting I suppose. HAR HAR! If you live in the area, or are visiting the area I highly recommend you groove your booty on in and check it out! You won't be sorry.
Knitting news?! Could there be? Just yesterday as a matter of fact I taught my first ever class at knit-one-one. I taught a leaf lace pattern, a scarf. It was so much fun. Sile just got back last night from a trip to NY. SO we feasted on real bagels, as well as that famous shortbread. (for those of you who don't know, Sile makes the most amazing short bread, and often serves it up during classes.) A former student once commented that knit-one-one was like a knitting spa, because Sile waits on you, bringing you anything you could possibly need or want. I think that is a very accurate description.
So what am I knitting? socks.... socks... socks... a herringbone scarf, etc. I promise that my next post, whenever that is, will contain photos and more knitting info.
