A Hard Week…

This last week has been filled with sadness, sorrow and loss.  As a result I’ve had to take a much needed hiatus from the work at home mom world, and dyeing yarn not only for my emotional and mental recovery but also for my physical recovery.  On February 19th we had some exciting and thrilling news, we were expecting our third baby!  Both my husband and I were excited and thrilled at the prospect of another child.  Sadly, on March 24th I had a miscarriage at 8 weeks pregnant.  We are devastated at the loss of our baby and have been taking some time to grieve for our loss as well as spend time together as a family to heal.

I have been advised by my midwife to take it easy and rest for a week or two while my body recovers.  This is one of the reasons why yarn orders have been delayed.  I intend to resume dyeing and catch up on all outstanding orders, yarn subscriptions and co-op orders starting Tuesday March 31st.  

I appreciate your understanding during this difficult time.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding your order, please feel free to email me.  Please be aware though, that I may not respond to your email immediately but will do my best to get back to you within 24 hours.

Thank you to all of you who have sent us your love, support, thoughts and prayers;  they have been a source of healing to us and we appreciate them greatly.

I have to say that I had a LOT of fun creating this colourway!  I hope that you all enjoy knitting it as much as I enjoyed creating it.  I did have a little inspiration for this colourway from a favourite fabric of mine “Kumquat Goldfish”

So withouth further ado, here is Kumquat Goldfish on Champion BFL Aran!
