I've never been a big fan of change but sometimes change is GOOD!! And this is one of those times. I have accepted a full time position managing The Knitting Room. I start the middle of May.

I will still be at good old UB on Sundays because I love my manager, he's the most awesome guy in the world and I want to help him out (also he asked me really nicely).

I'm very happy and excited... may be a little nervous too. I have so much retail and service experience and I'm comfortable doing ordering, receiving, inventory... but this will be a challenge. One I'm looking forward to. I do have an honest passion for knitting. I hope to learn and grow in the position and put all my retail and marketing skills to full use to make the store the best it can be. I want it to be welcoming and comfortable... a truly special place. I hope the fantastic community of knitters in Calgary will be happy for me.

In other news... I have some contest winners! They know who they are. Prezzies got delayed but they are on their way.

And did I mention I finished Mara YAY! I have been wearing my "Shawl of Despair" regularly... now that it's done I LOVE it!!
