It has been a very busy few years and very few of the moments within these years had anything to do with Tempted. Two years ago my sweet but rotten husband had to deal with cancer again. He had a much more serious fight with cancer in 2001 and in comparison this one was easy however within a few months of the cancer diagnosis he had to have a shoulder replaced. To be honest that was a pretty tough recovery. Nothing has been easy these last 2 years, some of the things that have happened are not my story to tell. However, it hasn’t been an easy time and took me away from being a dyer and knitter to be honest.
I have always been honest and believed that the people that I sell yarn to are more than customers they are my friends. Yarn brought us together, knitted us together in life our stories are interwoven even in the smallest of ways. I love hearing about babies being born, marriages, new furry family members and I try to have sympathy/empathy with those who are under the stresses of death, illness and the various ways of loss. Through the good times and bad my knitting friends have been there for me and I continue to try to do likewise.
This evening I am trying to give myself and Tempted a re-boot. Not as easy as it might sound. In the last clubs I ended up having to move back the shipping dates due to chemotherapy and things I could not control. Made me feel horrible no matter what the reason. I’m putting my faith in the knitting community and in the future that things will get better.
Planning anything for the future for me right now takes faith. I do not want to say I promise anything but I am going to try to put myself back out here and try. Gonna start just like I started in the beginning, a little at a time. If there is still a desire for another club, I will want to and I do think that is what I am best at. I like the personal touch and getting to really know the people involved.
Thank you all for all the past support especially club members who suck with me through the tough times and I hope I can earn your future support.
