The Big Reveal...

Alright guys, I know I've been absent for a while, but I can finally show you what I've been working on!

I'm excited to announce that Yarn Sprout: 100% Naturally Dyed Yarn is now open for business!

I'll be adding more stuff later this week, so don't forget to bookmark the site!  

I'd also be forever appreciative if you'd help spread the word!

1 Month...

I can't believe it's been almost a month without blogging. I feel like I've forgotten how to type!

I am alive and well, and I really appreciate all the inquiries into my well being.  

I wanted to pop on here, and let everyone know that my absence is not from some big falling-out with knitting, nor is it from a desire to stop blogging.  It is simply caused by me overcommitting myself.  

When it rains it pours, and for some reason this always has me go and find a hose to spray myself with at the same time - if you get what I mean.   My mom always says that I never have nothing going on.  

We did finally find a new person at work, but somehow - and I really have no idea how this happened - I have even more work to do!  I still love my job, but honestly, I love it more when it's not taking up 10-12 hours a day. 

Our new person is excellent, and the perfect fit, which makes me endlessly happy.  We also have got 2 other new people in our office, and 3 new site supers, and for some reason I've become the go-to person for questions, which is also creating a lot more work for me.  Of course, with expansion comes more new people, and my payroll has ballooned in the last month and a half.  

Today is our work barbeque for 150 people, and somehow I am in charge of that too!  

On top of all this - I have decided to start my own business with the hopes of one day working full time at it.  I'm not quite ready to launch yet, but you guys will be the first to know when it's good to go.  I'm pretty sure you'll be interested in checking it out.  

As for the podcast - I am not abandoning it - it's just on a temporary hiatus.  

We are all in good health, and the cats are having a wonderful summer of catching bugs and waking up at the crack of dawn.  

I promise I'll be back soon.  

Hugs to all!

Chrissy :)
