The Winner! (see below)
The Slacker (me)
OK. I know I said the contest ended on Thursday, that would be two days ago. I’ve gotten sucked into work again for a week, and things got away from me. More on that later.
I was highly entertained by all your comments on my “Free Yarn” post. Thanks to you all, we now have about thirty years of vacation spots lined up, and we’ll likely never get to all of them. (Just like I’ll never get to knitting stuff from all the yarn in the stash…when did that ever stop me from trying?)
Without further ado, the winner is, by way of the Random Number Generator:
Charity, author of the blog Knitting In The North. Go check out her blog. She is a wonderful knitter, and has lovely children. Her little Liam is just the cutest thing ever born. And she lives in Canada. Who doesn’t love Canada? She gets the lovely electric blue Aran weight yarn, and perhaps a couple of little extras that I’ll throw in.
As to the work week. This is my last work week at the old job. I’ve joined a new practice as an internist in the same city, same hospital, but a different group, starting in November. I have two more days in my current position, then a couple of weeks off to re-group and get oriented, then it’s off to the races in a new capacity. It should be fun and exciting, and a little more of a sane work schedule, I hope. I definitely need more time to knit and spin (and sleep!), and to travel to all of those places that you guys recommended. Wish me luck! I’ll be back with a Project Update next week!
