Seattle was a great trip- we met some awesome people, went out to some good pubs and met some really nice readers of the comic. I got to meet Karen Gillan from Doctor Who for a very pleasant 14 seconds, and got to meet readers of the comic who are fans of me, which is a bit strange. I'm just a character in the comic! I don't even make it! Still, it's cool to meet someone who loves the comic and I'll admit, it's kinda fun for me. I do little of the work and still get to meet great people. Mwahaha!
I also got to see some friends and meet some comic creators and other nerdy awesome people. And of course, I popped out to Pike Place Market which was ten minutes down the road and has a yarn store. I had too.
I bought a skein of a sparkly, lovely gold yarn.
The weekend after Seattle, we left for NYC for our honeymoon!
This shot is where I was winding the ball of pretty sparkly gold I got in Seattle in the hotel room. I had to get creative.
Other than that, and a few issues with the hotel and a jerk on the bus on the way down, it was an awesome trip.
We did so much- the Met, Central Park, the Tenement Museum, the High Line, seeing Book of Mormon, walking the Brooklyn Bridge and going to the Doctor Who themed bar- and of course, my yarn crawl. I went to the Lion Brand Yarn Studio, Purl Soho and Brooklyn General. I was too busy admiring the yarn to take any pictures, and I can't believe it, but I still haven't. I'll have to get some photos of what I got. I had fun, let me tell you, and I got some yummy stuff.
Then I came back to find out that for sure my store was not reopening, and we were closing a week after my return. I worked the last week, went away for Easter, came back to help pack the store and had my last day this week. So now I'm unemployed! I had my first interview already, and it went well although the job ended up not being right for me.
So I have to find myself a new job, and figure out where I want my career to go. In the meantime, I'm hoping this means I'll be able to get some more pattern designing done and maybe even rest a bit. Funny concept.
