Knitting Community

It has been an eventful couple of weeks. I finished up my EMT course and all that is left is taking the National Registry boards on Jan 8th. I got laid off again. This time, all I could think of was "Cool, now I have time to knit!" I have to be a sick puppy. My poor husband immediately set to rebudgeting the finances back to " tight and squeak." He is fantastic at this. Thank goodness that we live on his paycheck and save mine. I am more irritated that my new bathroom and spinning wheel are once again on the back burner. I also had to convince the baby boy that Christmas was not 'ruined.'

I picked up my knitting immediately for 'poor me' therapy instead of cleaning up the house that had been let go due to intense coursework and work schedules. I think I shall be upset for a least until I finish my cap shawl and a few other UFO's. I so wish that I could have all of my knitting friends together for a 'therapy' session. It is so calming to knit, chat, and drink favorite beverages isn't it?

Love to all. Have a wonderful and Happy Christmas as I know I intend to enjoy this wonderful time with my family and friends. Be safe if you travel and enjoy your blessings as I do mine.

Goodness no wonder you we were about done the other day. I have been catching up on as many blog post as I can so I have been going from current then backwards. So of course I read about the turkey first. Congrats for finishing the course and good luck on the 8th. Guess your not the only sick puppy I sort of envy the extra knitting time you are going to have.Sorry that's bad *slapping my hand* Its the cold medicine talking. Ignore it... It will also just give you more time to get ready for the Registry board and to look for that new job. We have been on the "tight and squeak" a few times and know how stressful that can be. You know anytime your logged on here you are among knitting friends who are more than willing to knit, chat, and drink favorite beverages.

Congrats on finishing school! I did as well on Dec. 14th. Knitting is wonderful therapy for getting laid off too. I do know that from experience! LOL
Merry Christmas!

I'm so sorry you were laid off! [[[Cyberhug]]] I've been thinking about you. You can make some fairly decent yarn with an inexpensive drop spindle. It's just slower. Good luck finding a new job. --Peggy
