Argentina

Yes, so I realize that I've been mentioning this from time to time for several months now, but never formally introduced the big news!
ETA: Actually, I just read back through my posts and it looks like I never really did mention this, even though it's been consuming my life.

I will be studying abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina from the end of February through the end of July. It's an interruption from my regular course of study, but I'm going to take the opportunity to complete some credits towards a Spanish minor, as all of my courses will be taught in Spanish while I'm there. This is a wonderful (albeit terrifying) opportunity for me and I have to admit I'm freaked out. This is definitely bigger than anything I have ever done in my life!

Because I'm going to be away during the festival season, I am having a sale right now in order to give people a chance to do any shopping they might have wanted to do over the summer. From now until February 15th I will take 20% off of any order of two items or more, and shipping is free for all purchases! 11:59 on February 15th I will close my shop in order to prepare for my departure on 2/20.

This is a sneak peak, before I completely finish my uploads, and send out an e-mail to my mailing list, so if you see something you like you may want to snap it up now, because I won't be making more until next fall, and when I run out I run out!

One of Dani's closest friends spent a semester in Chile, although I'm still not sure why. Anyway, she is the quiet, shy, type and she did fine. I can't imagine you'll have any problems! Great opportunity and an experience you'll never forget for sure!

Hey girl, take it easy, we'll be nice to you!
Drop me a line if you need anything from Buenos Aires, now or when you come here.
Do you know anybody here? In any case you have a fellow knitter (aka: me) in Argentina so feel free to contact me.

Dropped by first to say thanks so much for the manly sock tips!! I'll definitely be checking out those patterns.

Now that I'm here:
Those earrings are great!
How exciting to be heading to Argentina!
And I loved the 'little hater' video from a few posts ago. Definitely some stuff that hit home there!

BetteJo: thank you so much for the words of support. They mean a lot!

Andrea: Is there any chance you know of some knitting groups? Thank you so much for extending a hand. I don't know anyone in Argentina, except I have an e-mail from the woman I will be living with. It makes me feel better to know that I know someone!

Soo: Welcome! Thanks so much for checking out my little corner of the internet:) The little hater is the video that finally got me back on the horse, so to speak. Jay Smooth is damn good!
