It's Been a While.........

Yes, I know, I'm a bad, bad blogger. But, you see, the story goes something like this..........

In February I helped move the 9-5 job to another town an hour away. Lets just say it was some major heavy machinery in a steel factory and all offices, equipment, etc. They wanted to keep me on, but the drive and a few other serious issues (moral) were getting to me. So I went in two weeks ago today to give them my notice.

Well..... They gave me a raise. I was so disappointed with myself that I went in the next day to quit. Lo and behold.... the owners were not there. The next day(Friday), I was going to quit, but I had to help finish up the trade show set up. So I decided to wait until Monday. They still were not in, so I packed up my stuff and sent them an 'I'm resigning' email.

It was as if a heavy weight had been lifted from my back!

Now, I am planning on spending the bulk of my time hand painting fibers! It's a huge leap for me. I still have my part time gigs (property management and helping Mom w/ the shop), but this is my own thing! And I love it!

Granted, dying fibers is not going to pay the bills, which is why I have my Bill and the other jobs:) Right now, I am just hoping and keeping my fingers crossed that it pays for its self. It is just darn right warm and fuzzy to think that I am doing something that is mine, all mine.

Any hows, here are a few of the new items you will see over the next few days at LunabudKnits.

Fingering weight superwash, mohair top and superwash pencil roving.
Left out are: Carbonized Bamboo top and a faux cashmere top that I am eager to discover how well it dyes:)

Scarey to take a such a career leap but wishing you the best!

Other Fun Facts..................

I taught myself to knit by watching a woman while on a flight from Scotland to the USA in 1996.

I taught myself how to spin yarn Feb 15th, 2007. I think I've done fairly well:)

'Lunabud' is a combination of two dogs' names I was loved by, Buddy and Luna:)
