I know I’ve been missing in action for a while, but with good reason. With my kids in school all day now, in October, I went back to work part-time in accounting. It started off simple and enjoyable, but once the person I replaced left and I had the opportunity to do my thing, it became quite… different. I still generally enjoy it, love the people I work with, but it is currently downright stressful. I know things will calm down in a few weeks probably.
And then a week ago we learned that my husband would be laid-off from his great job with an even greater company that has been undergoing financial stresses. So on top of my own job stresses, I now have the emotional burden of losing that “company family” connection, and the worry of how our personal finances will shake out in the coming season.
As much as I would love to knock out a few new patterns – I have some in the works!… sorta – at this time it is impossible to for me to give much attention to pattern writing. But I just wanted to throw out there how much I do appreciate all of you knitters who do support little businesses like mine. I’m not going anywhere, just gonna be silent for a while until things are back in order.
