On the work table today is some lovely yarn to swatch. I am working on some ideas for new projects. I let CJ play with the hanks while I wound these into balls. Her favorites are the ones with Merino Wool in them, just like me! How funny.

While winding the hanks, I was smiling to myself at how pleased I am for Marly and her new job. She is the new creative director for Bijou Basin Yarns. I think she is going to be fantastic at this. She has a knack for picking out projects that become huge. And speaking of huge, I have also really enjoyed watching Bijou Basin explode at each TNNA. I am just thrilled for everyone involved.

Which lead me to think about my dream job, which I do not think I have shared before with you. I do enjoy being a designer and book author, I love the creativity I get to share. And I know I would love being a craft book editor, getting to work closely with other authors to make their work look amazing. But my true dream job is to be a creative director for a yarn company. To get to work with other designers and design myself, would be a blast. I think concentrating on one line of yarn, and promoting it to the best of its potential would be a fun challenge. Researching the latest trends in fashion, home decor, and colors and interpreting them for each new season. I mean how fun, right?

So you can see why I am just so thrilled for Marly. I think her getting to work so closely with Bijou Basin will be tremendous for both of them.

As for me, I am a believer that dreams are totally attainable, if you put your whole heart and soul into it. That is why I am just tickled to watch my friends succeed in the industry. It just makes me smile.

Ok, enough typing my hands are itching to crochet!
