What’s your dream job?

November 10, 2006

For most of us fiberholics, it would be getting paid to do something with fiber–design, spinning, dyeing, help me out here.

I have a new job.

And it’s cool for several reasons.

1)  They called me and offered me the job.  I wasn’t even looking.

2)  It’s a five-minute walk from my house (one if I drive).

3)  It’s part-time, and only during school hours, so I won’t have to put my kids in daycare.

4)  I get paid to knit.

I am not making this up.  My job is to man the front desk and make sure only authorized people are in the school.

I think I’m going to have to borrow Dave’s shirt.

I am totally psyched.

And contest winner will be announced this evening.

    That’s an awesome shirt. Awesome job, too. (I’m a technical writer, which means my boss wants to see my hands on the keyboard, not the knitting. Drat.)
