This has been the most amazing week I can recall in an awfully long time. This is going to be a quick post because my plate is crazy full. I think I need to come up with a schedule, a weekly routine where I at least spend one day putting the knitting needles down and writing.
Thanks to the staff at Lionbrand Yarn for the great publicity. It has opened up some amazing doors. My inbox has been filled with well wishes and support from people all over the globe. I am eternally grateful. If you get a chance, swing over to Lionbrand and tell them “Thank you!” Lionbrand saved my bears.
I’m also still actively hunting down a place to live. I think this time it would be best if I find someplace to live alone. I don’t want someone again to tell me I have to go. I don’t want to be put in this situation again because of a 25 year olds personality flaws. So, I’m busting out of bed at 4am, knitting all day, surfacing only long enough for coffee and a bite to eat, a scratch to Mario’s chin, and then back to work. I’m looking into teaching knitting classes at my local yarn shops. I want my future to be in all aspects designed around my own decisions. Not at the whim of someone else’s. So! Its back to work I go.
I’m also going to do a series of blogs soon about how I make my bears with Fisherman’s wool, why I use that yarn, and how the bear came about.
I just want to let all of you know I’m still here, quietly knitting like a mad man, knitting bears, writing out the patterns (Yeah! I think I should sell them!), hunting a safe and private place of my own (no more renting rooms because I can’t find anything else) and directing my life with a set of knitting needles to guide me.
And of course, I wanted to thank all of you for your continued encouragement and support.
No amount of sadness, or disappointment could ruin the shield of love you’ve surrounded me with.
