Working in the Coffee Shop


When I was working as a barista, the same handful of people would come in to work on their laptops on the same days every week. For a long time, I was happy to be the barista, serving them, but toward the of my barista-ing tenure, I desperately desired to be on the other side of the counter.

About the same time I stopped being a barista, a new coffee shop opened up in town–one that I had never worked at, one where I didn’t know most of the baristas, one where I could start new and be one of those people who gets to work in peace on the sit-down side of the counter. (One that was also operated by PT’s Coffee Roasting Co, which, hand-to-god, roasts the best coffee ever.) Which is what I am doing tonight.

I am trying to work at the coffee shop one or two nights a week. The ease of sinking into the sofa and spacing out on the internet has proved too much of a draw to me over the last few weeks. I am hoping that coming here helps me stay on task. I have spent the last two hours writing up a rough draft of a pattern that I have been meaning to write down for two weeks now.


I am planning to sell this particular pattern, so no more details at this time. HOWEVER, I am still looking for one more test knitter. I am providing yarn to knit with and paying in yarn. I am also hoping for pretty quick turn around, so please comment if you are interested, and I will get back with you for more details. (Disclaimer: I am happy to ship yarn to anyone in the US for this project, but if someone local offers, they will probably get the job, simply because of ease, but I certainly don’t count on getting a local, so please don’t hesitate if you’re tantalized by the photo above.)

  1. Oooh! I’m always willing to try new patterns (as long as it’s within my ability)! Pretty much the only thing I’m afraid of is cabling simply because I don’t have any experience with it yet. I’ll be a guinea pig for you though, if you want.
