I have been mum about this but I recently received a promotion at my job. It’s been in the works for a couple of months and I didn’t want to count my chickens until they hatched but its official now. I went from a staff level accounting to a manager of accounting operations. I have four direct reports and new boss who is….challenging…to say the least. It’s been a ton of work and I have a lot to learn. But I’m excited to have gotten this opportunity. I’m 35 years old and this is my first promotion ever.
My husband decided to get me a little congratulatory gift. He asked for yarn suggestions and I said anything from KnitCircus. So he and Jellybean made an order. And shocker, since Jellybean helped its ALL PURPLES. That is Jellybean’s go to color. I don’t mind because they made beautiful choices.
The top skein is a Trampoline base in the Dream a Little Dream colorway. It’s 440 yards of a light fingering weight and the same kind of yarn I made my Sherwood Forest Wrap with. The bottom two skeins are the Greatest of Ease base in two matching 25 gram gradient sock skeins in the Knit Sky colorway.
My favorite part of these yarns? They are already wound up and ready to use! I like when that less than fun part is done for me. KnitCircus may be in my top five favorite dyers. Do you have a favorite dyer?
Congratulations, that’s awesome!
Congratulations! Best of luck in your new position. Those are beautiful yarns. One of my favorite dyers is Tayler Earl-Fiber For the People. She is a real sweetheart! https://www.fiberforthepeopleyarn.com/
I love Knit Circus gradients! Are you going to start on the inside or outside? How do you want your colors to progress? So pretty!
I haven’t decided. I want a pattern that uses every inch of the gradient but that isn’t also over complicated. I think I’m going to pet it until it tells me what it wants to grow up to be.
Congratulations on the promotion! And I love the colours they chose. I am not usually a purple lover but those really pop.
Congratulations! And what a lovely gift! 🙂
Congratulations! That’s got to be a great feeling. Hope the relationship with the boss gets easier.
Congratulations! Great news on your promotion, and on the lovely gift 🙂
That is beautiful. the boys did good
Congratulations on the promotion! The yarn looks lovely!
