Bye Bye Bullseye

Got this at work today.....


It's my name tag. Only took them two months to get me one. Strangely, they handed it to me today. Which happens to be my last day!!!!

SPLEE!!!! (runs around house tearing off red shirt and khaki bottoms, throwing them into a fire pit and doing ancient and strange ritual dances)

I'm too exhausted from celebrating to give details or participate in a Massage Monday post. I will say that, no, I wasn't fired. I quit. It involves the super-secret goings on at this house that will be finalized on Wednesday.

To soothe your blogging needs, I present two of the fibers I bought during the crawl....



Red Rocks Sock Yarn in the Fallback colorway (it was also, a "fallback" color as I wanted A Wild Night Out colorway, but they only had one skein of that).




Colinette Jitterbug (forgot the colorway name but... ain't it pretty?!)

Reveling in retail-free freedom, Ruth!

Hee hee! Seems to always work out like that. Love the yarn!

Yarnhog said...

Love that first yarn!

And congratulations(it is congratulations, I assume?). Whatever the goings-on, they must have some sort of a happy ending if they've allowed you to quit. When are you going to clue us in? Hmmm?

I really think the first commandment of knitting should be "thou shall not covet thy blog friend's stash" because it happens all too often. Like with this post. Can't wait to hear the gory details!

May your future be forever void of red shirts and khaki pants.

Congratulations on leaving retail hell behind! (That's the technical term for it.) Righteous yarn ya got there, too.

Chris said...

Congrats on your freedom (and on the pretty yarn)! I can hardly wait to hear the details...

Congrats on a retail-free life. I'm dye-ing to find out your big news!! You must tell me the name of the colinette jitterbug colorway. Was that part of the 50% off blue yars @ String?
