After a Long Absence...

I have not posted a single thing since September! I am sure you will believe me if I say I have been busy. I mostly tried to keep up with orders, and helped our oldest daughter reach her dreams. She always was a fabulous artist. I know I may be somewhat partial, but her paintings and sculptures take my breath away. Like me, she sees a world of colors and emotions. My husband and I decided to support her fully in her dream to become a painter and sculptor. We went through the college application process easily, but we sure kept busy! She has just been accepted to a wonderful art shool as a Junior with a Fine Arts major.

Overnight, life seems to have returned to normal. Homeschooling, dyeing yarn, and my favorite, creating new colors and patterns. I had to put a lot of my creative activities on hold during these busy months, but I am so happy to be back.

Sometimes, time pressures help you realize what it is that you really love, and miss. I missed creating. I missed creating new colorways so much, that I have decided to change things a little for Sockpixie's store. Every Sunday, at 6p.m. Eastern time, I will update the website with new colors. You will know how many are in stock and ready to go. So each Sunday night, it will be almost a surprise!
The first update will be this Sunday December 9.

The other part I missed tremendously was designing patterns. I will continue to post free patterns online, on the Sockpixie blog, and will also start publishing patterns for purchase.

That's it for the updates!

I am so happy to hear that everything is going well for you. I was so worried about you during your absence.

Congratulations to Alexandra. I hope she will be happy with her course of study. Children don't always follow the path we thought they would, but they have to live their life for themselves and not for us. Your love and support will help her accomplish wonderful things.

I look forward to seeing your new yarn each week. I haven't had much time to knit lately. I have been busy with work and my family. After Christmas maybe I will get a chance to have more "play time".

I send my love and best wishes to you, Rolfe and your family,
Laura Rakitnichan
