Whew, what a month! The shop closing sale is in full swing and I am exhausted. We have been very busy and it has been emotionally draining as well. Before I go any further, let me stop and say Thank You! I have received emails, hand written notes and in person visits, expressing how sad you are that Spin A Yarn is closing. You’ve made me feel loved and appreciated and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for that. I wish it could be different and we could keep going, I hate to disappoint so many people, but when a business ceases to be a business, a decision has to be made. As you know it was a difficult and sad decision for me, but I didn’t feel like there was another choice. I am so grateful that for the past 20 years I have been able to do what I love and share it with others who love it as well. How many people get tot say that about their lives? I am truly blessed and filled with gratitude for that gift and I thank you.
As always, I continue to knit…
As promised the double knit reversible vest is finished. Though a little time consuming to make, it was fun and interesting to make. I love a challenge. I am pleased with the results. It should be nice and warm too!
And the distraction: I was looking through the patterns for a customer and came across this sweater and thought; “hmmm… I like that…” You know what that means. I pulled the pattern and looked at yarn. I knit the sweater and have worn it twice since I finished. Guess I like it :) (Just to prove I wore it, a rare glimpse of me in a picture).
Last spring I put aside a ribbon yarn and beads to make a beaded necklace to go with a sweater I made. The colors matched amazingly well. It has been sitting in my bag since spring. I planned to wear the sweater on a Saturday, so Thursday I got started on the necklace and wore it on Saturday.
I guess that’s about it. The top down sweater is still in the bag, something is bothering me about it (I am designing it) and I keep putting it off. So it will probably wait until I work out whatever the problem is in my head and then on the needles.
My head is spinning with knitting projects and ideas. As you can image, with the shop closing I have taken a little yarn home with me. Now I have so many projects I want to knit, I don’t know where to start. I’ll keep you posted….
