I’m not sure how it happens, but daughter B seems to parlay interests and hobbies into incredible job opportunities. They’ve taken her from the beaches of Maine to the waters of Puget Sound, from the forest to the desert. Her current find is a position at the Jimmy Beans Wool shop in Reno, where she’s working herself up from sales to social media mogul.
The shop’s website sells all manner of fancy yarns, needles, everything one might need for a knitting addiction–they even have free patterns! The JBW blog, while about to announce a SPECTACULAR coup for the shop later this week, today features an interview with Lorna Miser, designer, teacher, and author.
Lorna, of Lorna’s Laces fame, is the author of the new book The Knitter’s Guide to Hand-Dyed and Variegated Yarn, which includes “10 simple, accessible techniques, 65 stitch patterns, and 20 projects that make the most of the dazzling color combinations and creative possibilities that variegated yarns have to offer.”
And YOU could have your very own signed copy of this book for FREE as a winner of the contest, by leaving a comment on the blog telling everyone your favorite Lorna’s Laces colorway. (Folks local to Reno, NV can stop in and register in person.) One comment per person–and the deadline is this Friday, January 14 at 3 p.m. PST.
