Wow. My head is spinning, I'm tired, but I think some aspects of my new responsibilities are beginning to sink in. Others are still as mysterious as they were a couple of days ago, maybe even more so. But this is fun and exciting, and I think taxonomy and I are going to be very good friends soon -- so much broader than cataloging, so much more opportunity to come up with something truly unique and appropriate.
Anyhow, this is a knitting blog, not a knowledge management blog. So first off, I would like to thank everybody for the many sock suggestions. I love all of those patterns, and I have different stash yarns in mind for every single one of them. This should really help with the stash busting!
I'm going out for New Job Yarn today, but that's my last yarn shopping expedition until Rhinebeck, to which Eileen and I have promised ourselves we're going, come hell or high water. By then, my stash should be nice and small, completely devoid of ambient yarn. What's ambient yarn, you ask? It's the stuff that's floating around my yarn closet because it doesn't fit in any of the 3 storage bins. Or the ugly lime green travel thingy I bought at Jo-Ann's and promptly filled up with yarn. Ahem.
So, pictures of my New Job Yarn are coming up. In the meantime, let me add the Forgotten New Year's Resolution to my list. You guys have reminded me that there's sixteenth one I'd completely forgotten to list:
Learn to knit socks toe up. Because I never have, and because there are so many beautiful patterns for toe-up socks. I want to be able to knit them.
