In which my superstar-archaeologist-lifestyle necessitates that I temporarily abandon knitblogland (and the U.S., as it were).

And away we go...literally. So, I leave tomorrow morning for the UAE to excavate to my heart's content for five weeks. I'll be filling my days doing nerdy archaeologist-y things, like this:

and this:

And digging, of course...this is what I'll be digging:

And a little sneak peek at amenities...

And deserty, camely goodness (in the middle of winter, I might add!)






In knitting-related news, everybody should go check out Julia's absolutely fantabulous edition of YARNIVAL! It's out now! Go read it! Julia did a SUPER-fantastic job with it, and I'm not just saying that because I got featured, either...but I DID in fact get a YARNIVAL shout out! Whoo! Hope y'all enjoy my contribution, silly as it is!

I'll be back mid-January...hope everyone has a wonderful month of holidays, and you will be hearing from me again in the New Year! (And...drum roll, please...a new Etsy handmade soap shop in early February!)

Have a wonderful trip. Your life sounds so exciting, really, I don't think your job is nerdy or boring at all. If possible bring us lots of pictures. Enjoy!

Fantastic! (I realize that archeology is not exactly indiana jones, though :)

I hope the field work/lab work goes smoothly, with even a little (safe) excitement thrown in!

Tell us all about it when you get back!

I'm missing your posts already, but can't wait to hear all about the dig. A million years ago, I worked at NIST, and the office they gave me (as a summer undergraduate intern) was the home for someone who collected shards of pottery from digs and then used some kind of nuclear reactor-related dating method to figure out how old the pieces were. All of the desk drawers and cabinets were overflowing with pottery bits! Have a safe trip and lots of fun.

Heeeey. My package just arrived! It smeels frickin fantastic! Just what I need after Yarnival! A nice, long, scented bath. Hmmm. Don't get too fond of the camels. We're gonna miss you bunches!
