Today was my last day working at Knit Happens.


very sad.


Being my last official day, I felt the need to BUY SOME STUFF. After all, you can’t let a good discount go to waste, can you?
No, totally not. HOWEVER, even though that place is a FESTIVAL OF YARNY GOODNESS, I couldn’t find anything to buy. CRAZY!

I didn’t go home EMPTY handed though…small purchases *were* made:

The new Interweave, Steph’s latest book which I’ve wanted but never bought, and a skein of baby cashmerino
I also bought a 16″ US 4 addi circ, but I put it straight to use, so it was not available for the shoot. :-P

Still though, I had kinda planned on buying YARN, you know? Oh well.

Now, you might be asking yourself, “Hey…why won’t you be working at KH anymore, Lara?”

That would be a good question!

Want me to tell you?


The reason is…


I am finally going to get to see something I have not seen in over four years…


I am now the midday girl at my radio station, working 10 AM to 3 PM!!!

While for me this means challenging myself and new opportunities and greater exposure and a chance to interact with living, breathing REAL PEOPLE during hours when the sun actually SHINES, for YOU it also means MORE LARA! (yay!)

I don’t have to leave Knitty Meetups before everyone else anymore. I don’t have to drive through the night to see you guys at Rhinebeck. I may even pop up at a Knit Happens Late Night or Knit n’ Nosh!!! Dude, for the first time in over four years, I’mma have a normal LIFE!

I’m workin’ 9-5, baby, and what a way to make a livin’!!!!
