Moving

I was offered a job last week that I'd been hoping to get. It will be at a sister hospital, which is so much closer to my home. I no longer will have to take 2 freeways to and from work. In fact I do not have to take any freeways. Say bye-bye to the 1 1/2 hour commute. I'll be able to get to work in approx. 20 minutes. I can't wait. The job will be similar to what I'm doing now, however it's a new position, which means I'll be able to set it up the way I want to. It should be challenging initially, until the whole process is set up. Hopefully, this will all translate to more knitting time.
Speaking of knitting, Ella is almost done. I think I'll add one more repeat of section 2. I'm making the triangular shawl and there are no finished dimensions on the pattern. I'm not sure how much it will grow after blocking. Once she's done I can start a sweater for me.

Oh Shar! That is GREAT news about your new job!! NOT commuting is absolutely the way to go. I am only 2.8 miles from my work, so I ride my bike. It's great - a nice break from home to work and a nice way to unwind on the way back.
I keep meaning to ask you - where did you get the works in progress bars on your blog? I really like them and I'd like to incorporate them into my blog as well. Hope you have a great week. Your Secret Pal
