Took it- moving news and more!

Well, I took the job at SU, and now the whole world knows. We announced it to the classes today, and it is really gratifying to have everyone say such nice things about me.

In other really exciting news, I met Cheryl Potter of Cherry Tree Hill Yarns at MA Sheep and Wool and she is going to sell some of my yarn under the Ancient Threads Farm name. It feels like things are really taking off. So, I bought myself an electric skeiner and a whole new shipment of base yarn!

We sold quite a bit at MA, so I need to get the etsy shop updated again. Now to take the photos and do the loading of the yarn!

Now to get that done, find an apartment in Syracuse and get some new furniture while trying to clean up my job at Albany- oh the fun never stops!

more Syracuse news

No- I haven't accepted the job yet- but I found out that Syracuse has an MFA in fiber arts

and I get free tuition! How can I say no to that?

Looking up

Yes, things are looking up! We finally hired someone! He starts on Wednesday, so while I have to work this weekend and most likely next, my marathon spring is nearly over.

And.... da..da...da I got a new job ... in Syracuse. Syracuse isn't that far- only two hours away so it isn't like I can't come home every weekend- and I plan to. But, it does mean I have to leave my husband and kids for a while, until the house sells, and Tim makes a decision on what he is going to do. So, while I'm very excited about this opportunity, I'm nervous if we can make it through.

The salary is nearly a 50% raise for me, and the job looks really interesting, so if you are from Syracuse and know of an apartment in the SU area, let me know. I'm looking forward to living close to work and walking if possible most days. I just don't want to live in a dive. Tim and I have to travel out there after graduation next week to try and find a place. I keep looking at the IKEA catalog and thinking about decorating a place all on my own.

I'm also looking for some knitting groups or guild that meet mid-week in the Syracuse area.
