Tangled up in blue

I've got a bike. You can ride it if you like. A pretty Schwinn cruiser that allows me to ride down to the grocery store and get fresh ingredients.
Bicycle! Bicycle! Bicycle! I want to ride my bicycle!...Bicycle races are coming your way/So forget all your duties, oh yeah!/Fat bottomed girls they'll be riding today/So look out for those beauties, oh yeah!/On your marks get set go! (Sorry, every time I think of my bike, two songs come to my mind - and Queen's "Bicylce Race" is clearly one of them.)
Another thing I covet at the moment is yarn (big surprise). The one above is the British Rowan "Colourscape Chunky" in Misty - 100% lambswool.
This one Heritage Sock Yarn by Cascade - 75% merino, 25% Nylon - in Steel.
And I got more of the lovely Mirasol Hacho - 100% hand dyed merino wool in Rainbow Dust.
I can't wait to finish my current project so I can start on these beauties.

More good news!

I got a new job. It's with the same awesome company, but in a different division and a pay grade higher. Oh, and I got "Senior" added to my title. So exciting!!

I have no delusions about the new job. It's going to be very challenging and fast-paced. There will be plenty of growing pains. But I am ready for a new challenge. You know it's time to move on when you get too comfortable where you are. That's the only way you won't stagnate. And I am all about personal and professional growth.

(Dobila sam novi posao. U istoj je kompaniji. Dobila sam unapredjenje i vecu platu.)
