I didn’t mean for the last post to sound cryptic… my eldest daughter texted immediately, wondering if her dad and I were packing it up and moving to Hawaii… I wish! … sort of. It was really meant to convey this whole business of starting an independent yarn/craft business with my sister. It’s something we’ve talked about for years and years, but we haven’t lived in the same city since we were kids and we haven’t lived in the same country for 25 years, so that was kind of a stumbling block. But we took the leap and I’m so happy we did. We talk daily via some form of communication… text, instagram, email, FaceTime and even through the chat section of our favourite online word game (word chums… it’s the best one out there and you get to have a cute avatar that you can dress in silly hats, and learn new words!) When we talk, we brainstorm, we encourage each other, we catch up on family and friends, we ohhhh and awwwww over the latest dyed yarn. What were we waiting for, indeed.
We have about four weeks untill our next market booth, August, 30th, and I think we’re up to speed on what we need to get done. I’ve been coming up with little kits for some of the yarn I’ve dyed and writing a pattern to go with it. Melissa has been dyeing yarn and knitting up samples. She’s coming up in a couple of weeks so we can hang out in person and scheme and plot all day and play with yarn. And drink wine.
