Yeah, I'm pretty sure she fired me.

I love Claudia (she of the Hand Painted Yarns fame).

She even fired me with class. It took me a while to realize it had happened.

Wow. I got fired.

It was my fault. When she hired me a year ago, it was with the understanding that I'd work full-time in the summer and part-time during the school year, just to keep in touch with what's going on there. Since I don't want to work full-time this summer, she let me go. I understand that.

She was very understanding about it, about wanting to vacation, visit family, have time at home when I don't have to work. She asked me if I'd be happier test-knitting for her, coming in any time to sit and knit, have a cup of tea and talk, doing things at my speed. I agreed whole-heartedly. She's got a good bunch working for her now, and they really don't need someone coming in at odd hours a couple of times a week.

And I'm okay with that.

Darn, I was so hoping for one of those jobs where I can show up if I want, when I want, and they'll give me as many hours as I want. And I could leave, in the middle of the day, for 2 hrs., to walk the dog. Dag.

Claudia must think a lot of you to ask you if you'd like to continue test knitting for her.
Can I fire myself from my own business? Pfffttttt

Yeah, that's my idea of a perfect job. One of the cool things about Claudia is that she takes her dog to work with her every day, along with her macaw. It's so cool to have a dog at work, begging for attention all the time, and the bird is so funny.

I hope that the knitting will continue. I'm almost done with the shawl, which is going to be beautiful in August, when I finally finish it and block it. I get actual yarn for it!
