I don't know...

So it's been ten months...Hi.

It's funny how quickly life can change and warp itself into something so very different.
We challenge ourselves to be bigger and better and when that happens everything changes.

I quit my job in May... I left the job I loved. I left the people I loved seeing everyday, my family of the last three years... I quit. I still can't believe I did that.

It wasn't planned either. Then again getting that job in the first place wasn't planned, so leaving in the same way made sense some how. Sometimes things fall in your lap and you need to make a quick decision about it. I miss my old studio family every day, but I am proud of this HUGE life decision.

Starting a new job and going through everything again is like the first day of high school.
Going from a family who know your every tick and mood to sitting with strangers is such an odd experience. But my new studio family are amazing, and we have a good laugh every day.

People talk about years of change, and I never really got that but it's clear to me now that 2015 was a year of change for me. I feel like I've grown up more in these last 10 months than the last 3 years. I now run the Marketing and Graphics for an independent Melbourne fashion label. How insane is that. And I've moved out to move in with the boy. That's also insane.

So back to this blog of mine. I don't know what this space is for anymore. I don't make the time for this space anymore. I'd like to, and maybe I should.

Let's start with this...

This was my week this week. I installed all our Christmas decals onto the windows at our stores.

I don't know if I'll keep running this blog... we'll see how things go and if the flow comes back.
Follow me on the instagram @nicolegriffinknits I try and post on there lots.
I dont know...

So I made a new beanie pattern! LOOK THERE IT IS!

New Year new pattern good idea yes? I'm really happy with this fellow, it's just a slightly more complex pattern than the original TAKK beanie. But I think they work nicely together in the series.

Oh and I made this cute colour way as well! WEW PRODUCTIVITY.

This might be because Brian and I are doing another Market, in April. Yet to be confirmed...

The Bad & The Good

So, just under two weeks ago. I got rear-ended by a P-Plater driving a Navara Ute. MY POOR CAAAAAR Thankfully I was uninjured besides bruising and whiplash. It was terrifying I don't remember a lot of it, as there was a lot of hysterical crying on my part. Even my thermos of tea exploded all over my back seat and my glasses flew off my face! There was so much glass, It's amazing how much mess one window of glass can make.

And so began the quicker than normal hunt for a replacement.

I've always wanted a Mini, since I've had my Celica it was always going to be my next car. Although it happened a litter sooner than planned, I've fallen in love.

So now that all that drama is behind me, I'm hoping to have a very lazy few weeks, uneventful would be ideal. I'll get back into the blogging too.

Many Expletives

So it turns out that all blogger images are stored on Google+.
I don't use Google+ so I didn't want all those images on I deleted them.

Now my blog has no images. At all.

Bare with me I'm going to slowly put them all back in.
