what I did at work this week...


I mentioned that our CEO's wife is a knitter, right? And that she's working in our department, which I happen to oversee? And she's really, really nice?

Did I also mention that she's a fairly new knitter (she had never heard of Knitty.com! - I changed that and got her rolling along...), and that she had no idea about blocking or seaming or any kind of finishing. She has three dresses, all in pieces, that she was going to pay to have someone put them together for her, even though she wants to do it herself.

So I brought in my little blocking pads, pins, steam iron, pressing cloth, and we got to work. (During business hours!) I offered to come in earlier, or do it during lunch, but no, she wanted to do it right away. She's the daughter of the owners, and the CEO's wife - I'm going to say no?

It actually didn't take long and I eat at my desk on the fly most days lately, so I didn't feel too guilty...
today is a mattress seaming lesson.

You get to try out fun products for work purposes, and you get to teach some knitting tips to a coworker who actually wants to get into it. Who could ask for a better job than that? You are SO getting karma payback after your bad stint at the previous joint.

How great. Chalk it up to a mental health time out.

Way back when you were so happy to land the job at this company did you even know it could be this good?
