Big Update Time!

Hi all -
I realize it's been quite some time since I updated, again - and no, I haven't really fallen off the internets. But lots has been happening that's been keeping me from blogging, so I hope you can forgive me.

As usual, I have no knitting to show you because I have more super secret sample knitting than I can really keep up with.

In the first bit of good news, I got a job at the new yarn store in town, fibre space. We worked furiously for weeks to prep to get it open, and now we have lots of great yarn and cool classes lined up for the fall (not to mention parties and spinning fiber!). The website isn't finished, but you can see a bit of the progress on the owner's blog here. I am super happy to be around fiber and yarn and bright colors all the time, and I have wonderful opportunities for teaching and pattern designing and just generally kicking butt.

And now for the second bit of good news. On Tuesday, the anniversary of our very first kiss many, many years ago, Simon said the one thing I've always wanted to hear him say... and asked me to marry him.

Engagement ring

(I may not be able to knit from the distraction!)

Not so much distracted from knitting, but BLINDED! That ring is beautiful, I love the not-so-traditional ones. Congrats again, and happy wedding planning :)
