The Knit List

I copied this knit list from

Here are the directions: Bold for things you’ve done, italics for things you plan to do one day, and normal for things you’re not planning on doing. This is really a neat idea to see what you know how to do, what you want to work on, and what you know you are not going to do!

Hey! I know you're new to this, but I have questions that I hope you're planning to address in your blog! LOL Demands already, sheesh! LOL

Can please tell us about you job hunt...are you going to be looking for CNM jobs or FNP jobs, and why did you decide to go back for FNP right after CNM?

(I'm in school for CNM right now) so I love that you're finishing up and are going to talk about it!
