Moving On

Although I gave notice at the two shops I teach at a little while ago, I finally had the courage to post something on my website.

I am someone that dislikes change, and it is an uncomfortable feeling knowing that I am gearing up for a new stage in my life. However, it was the right thing to do for me at this time and I am curious to see what comes next.

It is a novel feeling knowing that I can knit whatever I feel like in whatever color I choose without some work related knitting looming over my head! Right now I'm working on mystery stole 3 in Alpaca with a Twist, Fino in a light grey/blue and iridescent blue/green beads. I am also working on a cabled cardigan from Rowan Classic Cafe in a rich dark brown merino superwash yarn by Knitting Fever called Sublime.

Congrats on moving into a new stage of your life! It must feel great to be knitting whatever you want, whenever you want...ah, freedom!

We want photos of your WIPs! :D

Change is never comfortable for any of us, but at least this is a change you are making on your own. By the way, I love the kitten pics on your Flickr badge!

Cheers for you! And lots of good wishes. Looking forward to hearing what you're up to and to seeing you from time to time at UR.

Good wishes on the new change :) It's hard, but it sounds like it'll be nice to knit what you like for a change!

Patty, I'm sure you will be greatly missed at the shops, but you need to think of yourself for once. Take care and enjoy your "me" time

Patty,
You are missed! Finally my schedule opened up and now, faced with an empty nest, I am going back to knitting. The beaded bag you helped me with [especially the tough crochet] is getting rave reviews. I lined it as you suggested. You deserve all that is good and kind. You are a wonderful teacher! Bev
