The rundown...

Long time, no see! I don't know if I could properly begin to describe all the crazy things that have been going on with me in the last week and a half. I think the best way at this point is to just give you a list...

1. I graduated on Friday, last Friday that is.
2. Moved all of my stuff down to my new apartment on Saturday
3. Spent the day unpacking and going to dinner with my family on Sunday
4. Repacked and left for Toronto on Monday
5. Started my internship at the zoo on Tuesday
6. Spent the week learning the ropes (of which I'm still learning)
7. After the zoo I went to the launch of the Yarn Harlot's new book on Friday.
8. Went on a yarn crawl around downtown Toronto on Saturday with the Harlot and a bunch of very fun knitters.

..... This is the part where, if I were telling you all these things in person, I'd take a minute to breathe...

It's been an overwhelming couple of weeks, but I have to say, despite the stress I may have felt at times, it's all been an exciting adventure that I'm so glad I've been a part of.

I really wish I could share some pictures with you and go into a little more detail about these things, but I'm using a computer that I can't upload my pictures on. Hopefully we'll get the wireless internet working here in a few days (though it may be longer than that) and I'll be able to share some great picture with you, including what I purchased on the yarn crawl!

Hi Erin!
I saw a picture of you on the Harlot's site - and was thinking to myself . . . "wait a minute . . . I know her!" Sounds like you had a super-exciting first week in Toronto!
Enjoy yourself!

hey there, you're practically famous now! i saw you on the Harlot's blog a few days ago-- the picture wasn't large enough for me to confirm my suspision, but i thought it looked like you. and then today, there you are front and center and sure enough, that gal in the green is indeed our Erin! what a fun way to get to know a new home city.
