GO ME!!!!

I got a job! I am now employed as the new circulation person at the Alpena County Public Library! YAY! I'm psyched! It doesn't pay well, and as the director pointed out, it's the bottom of the totem pole for sure, but it's what I loved doing back in Clawson at the Blair Memorial Library (always the best library ever!) and I can't wait to start! I start training tomorrow. Awesome!

So today I have to knit and do laundry like a mad woman. Oh, and I want to spin some more. Here, let me see if I can find the pictures of my yarn. There it is on the spindle . . . .
And there it is wound into a skein! It's very twisty. I for sure over twisted it, which I hear, can be a design feature, but not the one I was going for.

Did I mention the second best part about working at the library? Knitters. I hear there are like, five serious knitters there! I met one lady, who knits yarn that she spun from her dogs fur! And Meg, she rocks. Check out the pretty scarf she spun and knit for her boss' retirement, it's on her blog, you may have to scroll down.

The first best part about working at the library? It's a combination of things. First, I will have money to buy yarn and fiber! Second . . . it's around the block from the LYS!
