Whew, so glad to be back!
back for a bit, at least...I sooo missed KH last week!

So sorry to have been away for so long! I know it was just a week, but it felt like FOREVER! On business trips, I barely have time to sleep much less do anything remotely resembling "me time." Unfortunately that meant no KH and just as bad, no knitting!


The good news is that I'm starting a new job at the end of the month, so I'll happily get to knit and read/post on KH until then. The bad news is that I'll be on the road for a bit immediately thereafter while learning the ropes and unable to read/post to KH. The things we do to indulge our yarn habit...

I thought you'd been a bit scarce. Glad to see you again.

Congratulations on the new job!

Glad to see you back! It's tough when real life intervenes.

Many, many thanks, GG! I've missed you!

I've been working part time, but it was all travel, and the down time between trips could be as little as 2 days, or as much as 2 months. Lately it's been of the 2 month between trips variety which really came in handy for knitting and posting, and posting and knitting.

After the 27th, with my return to full time work with at most a couple weeks travel a month, I'll be lurking here (must have my KH fix!) until I learn the ropes and get settled.

My last boss describes his company and it's policy with we contractors as being like the Hotel California: "you can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave." KH is much like that!

LOLOL Jan! It is, isn't it?

One of my first thoughts was "Now I can buy more yarn!"

I'm not so sure that's a good thing, now that I think on it.

Haha! Yeah, working would encourage that stash enabling disease we all have. I don't work, but still somehow manage to have a good size stash. Good thing I enjoy making anything at all so I've been knitting charity hats of all sizes. They're a good "on the road" project if you need one for traveling, too.

A week! I've been gone for 2 days and it seems like forever. lol

I moved over the weekend, then had trouble getting the internet up and going, but that seems to be fixed now.

Moved? And no internet? Wow! What would we do without you? Tell your ISP you are totally necessary here. May your unpacking go smoothly. You must need a good fix of knitting therapy.

Well I'm back online. Took me nearly an hour and half this morning with both the ISP and the modem tech support. But we got it working.
