Ding! Hat is Done!

The hat that I was making for Rich for x-mas is complete! Even if I had to stay up knitting like a fiend until 3am risking running out of yarn! Pics to follow!

The Need to Break the Ties That Bind

Today I'm particularly antsy. I want OUT! Out of NJ, where the cost of living is sucking me dry. Out of my job (while I do like my job and mostly love the people I work with) that I'm terribly burnt out from. Ten years in one office doing the same thing, day in and day out has taken a toll on me. Mentally I'm drained, and that wears me down physically. I'm ready for something new and exciting, something that I once again feel passion for. I do not need, nor do I want outrageous fortune and fame. Though honestly a little fortune would be nice. I want to be happy with my life, to feel like I'm doing something important, even if I'm the only person this something is important to. The wanderlust is strong today, pulling me from what I need to be doing, and pushing me to focus on what I have to be doing to set the wheels of change in motion. I have to start thinking and planning seriously. Making decisions and bringing these plans and ideas to fruition. All of these things and more are steps in digging myself out of this pile o crap that is suffocating me.

Future Topics

I have to put them somewhere so that I don't forget them..

1. Ideas on ideas.
2. What I am, what I want, and what I will never be.
3. Finishing, what's the deal?
4. How do you just NOT SEE that??

OK, I think that's it for now.. off to knit the never ending X-mas gifts!

Uhhg Forgot AGAIN!

Maybe it's the pressure of trying to get all of my X-mas knitting done, but I forgot to share the second shipment I received from The Loopy Ewe .

One Down

I have one completed holiday knitted gift ready for giving :) 3 and a half more to go, plus a quilt to finish..wheeeew. I'd rather be doing any of those things than sitting here at work on a rainy/slushy day!
