Okay so I updated two knits today and I am going to keep trying to update a few everyday.
All the knits are handknit by me using either commercial yarn or yarn that I spun. I love luxury fibers so you are likely to see a lot of cashmere and silk. A lot of the fleece I process to spin is US grown and very nice, (I should get more). Here are the two I uploaded today:
More will be uploaded this week! I hope you will stop on by and check them out!
Honestly I don't even know. I have been feeling pretty beat and run down just with general life, Summer was tough as this was our first summer here in NH away from the beach. I never really liked the beach a lot, but when you have a kid the beach is like a big play area. We used to go to the beach at least 3 times a week and this summer was a struggle to find stuff to do outside in the heat. Then school started and that hasn't been easy either.
Our son started 1st grade this year. He is a really nice awesome kid, and he cant keep his body still. It doesn't seem to matter how good he is at reading or math. They just want him to be quite and sit still. The teacher is really nice, but 10 days in we were already having meeting where she was asking if we have seen anyone for medication for him. We explained to her that we already took our son to see a Harvard child psychiatrist who wont put kids under 10 on medication, and who also thought our son was behaving normally. When I talk to other parents they all tell me "I would just find a doctor to put him on meds". It is an incredibly frustrating experience.
In any case I feel so stressed out with that and the holidays coming up that I have been just living in hole, trying to escape because instead of teaching our kids how to behave it is easier to medicate them.
As far as my business I do have some Superwash DK that is waiting to be dyed and a new category to add. I am also going to discontinue Catwalk and replace it was a merino/cashmere/silk blend eventually.
