Veronica here. Remember me? I miss you guys!
Even though I am far, far away in California (where I’ll try to refrain from telling you how nice and warm and sunny and green it is right now), I can still be with you here, thanks to the wonders of the Internet and Danielle inviting me back onto the blog. We’ll be writing back and forth about all the usual yarny goodness.
First of all: I miss you all! fibre space was my second home in Alexandria. I might miss the shop more than my apartment. Sometimes I forget a little and imagine that soon I’ll walk right back in the front door.
Moving to California has been a little crazy. Thankfully corporate moves are much, much easier than packing all your own stuff. However, it was still nearly two months between moving out of our Old Town apartment and into our new home here in Mountain View. That is a long time to be without your stash, especially when you thought you’d have three more weeks to knit those stashed Christmas presents! Whoops. But now we’re all moved in and settled.
We also had to buy a car. We never had a car before but now we’re the proud owners of a little Prius. I like that it makes the superfuturistic Jetsons whirring noise.
Thanks to Ravelry I’ve found a local knitting group and met some new people. They’re good people and good knitters, and it’s fun to sit and have coffee with them.
In February I’ll be joining Miss Babs again at Stitches West in Santa Clara, less than ten miles from my house. I worked with her at last year’s Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival and it was a blast. I don’t think I’ve ever worked harder in my life, and I am pretty sure I came home with heat exhaustion, but it was still a great time. I’m looking forward to seeing Babs and Jen again and seeing lots of new faces at Stitches.
I’m looking forward to keeping up with what’s going on in Old Town, fibre space, and everyone there. And yes, of course I’m keeping busy knitting. More to come!
