When I learned to knit – in a bar – shortly after moving to North Carolina, I never imagined that I would have a knitting website and fledgling business. 8 years later, here we are. Sometime last year, Husband and I were in the bookstore dreaming about our future. He wants a comic book shop and I want a yarn shop. One step further, I want a farm in the mountains somewhere to raise sheep, cows, swans, chickens, and more. Yes, I wanted to raise my own yarn… Have someone come in to sheer the sheep, sell the fiber, keep some, spin it, dye it, and sell it either as custom yarn or finished projects.
I have knit a lot over the last 8 years. OK, not really, but a lot for me. I’ve always had a full time job, went to grad school for 4 of those years, planned a Vegas wedding, a Miami reception, moved from NC to FL, and more. My pride and joy project is my wedding veil that I knit over 6 months of lunch breaks overlooking the pool at work.
In the coming weeks, I will be doing a fundraiser to give s2s the push it needs to finally open. I do hope that, even if you don’t donate, that you spread the word to all your family, friends, and followers.
