There's been quite a bit of change in my life as of late, mostly surrounding work.
The More Things Change...
Many of you know, my career is a consultant...specifically, I help large companies implement human resources software. I could get more specific, but when I have in the past, eyes roll back into heads, and in some cases have stayed that way.
For the past 13 or 14 years, I have worked for large accounting firms, who often have a large consulting branch of their company. Recently, I decided to leave my latest accouting firm, and strike out on my own as an independent consultant. The change has required me to self-incorporate, start a business banking account, change all of my benefits (and Thaddeus') to personal benefits, and to find a client who would agree to take me on for at least a year.
It's sometimes hard enough making a change from one client to another, but this much change seemed a bit more daunting. Fortunately, I allowed myself enough time to get it all done, and so far...knock on wood...things have gone extremely well.
I'll keep you updated.
Men's Rocky Mountain Knitting Retreat - Part 2
Usually, I try to organize the photos from the men's knitting retreats I go to in some less-than-random fashion. Since I honestly have no idea where/when these photos were taken, I will just post half of the remaining photos in a random way and post the remaining photos in the next blog post. Hope that works for you.
With a flight to Denver, four days at a knitting retreat, and a flight home, you'd think I'd have gotten an enormous amount of knitting completed. You'd be wrong.
Here's what I've finished so far.
I've decided to call this the Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure Sock for Women That Fucking HATE Pink, sock. Name too long?
Love the pattern (modified toe-up Andersson heel and pattern stich from The Knitting Man(ual) by Kristin Spurkland ), love the yarn (Madeline Tosh sock yarn and contrasting toes and heels in Skacel's Jojoba sock yarn).
