The Blogging Bandwagon

Well, here goes. After much deliberation, I have elected to launch my own blog. Here is hoping you all enjoy.


This blog is intended to be about my two loves: nursing and knitting. I have been a nurse for 24 years and counting. As a teen, I learned to knit then put it away for many years. I picked my sticks back up 5 years ago and haven't looked back. I have developed quite a knack for knitting now and try to work on something daily. OK. Sometimes all day long. If I could, it would be all that I do all day long.

As much as I like what I do for a living, after 24 years of doing it, I harbor a secret desire to not do it anymore. I'd rather knit. But alas, the knitting monkey on my back is an expensive one---always longing to be fed. So that is what I do: I work to buy yarn, patterns, needles, notions, etc., in other words: "my stash". My children while sifting through the remains of what I've left behind when I am gone will bemoan the fact that they are sifting through their inheritance. Hah. They will need to take up knitting in order to find anything of value---it would then be as though they have struck gold. Oh- and I promise to also leave an insurance policy to take the sting out of such disappointment.

A likely response from you---you know that your birthday gift sits ignored upon the sticks as I am busy doodling here. We shall see what the end of the month brings.
