The news, rapid style

  • I am going back to work!! I’ve been talking about this on Flickr through the whole process. I start Monday. I’ll be working part-time. I am super nervous. I am super excited :D 
  • I will miss my kiddies :( But I think this will be good for all of us.
  • I finished my things for the Celebrating Handmade swap. I am really pleased with them and my effort to take my time with cutting and sewing. That the FOs really show the effort pleases me even more.

  • I have a couple of knitted finished objects as well! A Thermis cowl, which is awesome btw, and a improvised matching hat. I had a new yarn experience with this knit. I used Dream in Color Classy which I got at the Brooklyn General Sale (where I ran into Rosi G., who was nice enough to offer me a ride. I heart bloggers :D). I also got some fabric and the yarn I needed for the mitten swap I joined. Click the pic for more details on these.

  • Missy’s Saturday art classes start again. She is super excited, though she complained that she wouldn’t turn 8 before then :D. She’s also concerned that she wont have the same teacher as before. She befriended her daughter and looks forward to seeing her again.
  • And last, but certainly not least, Son#1 is catching on to this whole bathroom thing!!! There are no words to describe the joy this brings. I was beginning to pull my hair out over it. I frequently brought up being able to go to school when he got it down. I’m paying for those words, he wants to start NOW. Lol

It has been a good week!

  1. Wow, going back to work must be a big step indeed for a mother of 4. Part time should be no problem since I know you probably need the time away from the babies. I know what you mean about the potty training. Both mine were hard to train.

    Congrats on the exciting changes in your life. The knits look great.

  2. Good luck and congrats on the new job!

    All the things you made are lovely! I want to try that yarn so badly, but have refrained because I need to knit down my stash, and the price. But you said the magic word, SALE. When I have less yarn, I hope to score some from Brooklyn General’s future sales.

    You will be hearing from me when I need to train my little one to use the bathroom. Tell me all your secrets and tips!

  3. Hooray for you! And good luck too, because it’s such a big change. I hope you love it.

    Speaking of love, I heart your orange coat. That’s my favorite color and I own an embarrassing amount of it. Where did you find it?
