Dear Friends

I have some difficult news to share. I had a miscarriage this week. I had waited to tell you all that I was expecting a new little Pixie, but life decided otherwise. I will be recovering this weekend. I will not be putting new colorways on the website this weekend but I know what next week's colorways will be. If you want to look at my inspiration, you can check the internet for the gloriously painted kimonos of Itchiku Kubota.

I am so sorry. Many of us have been in your shoes. The sting does subside, the memory, not so much. Mine was 29 years ago.
Be kind to yourself.

I just happened to find your yarn and your blog. I am looking at all the beautiful colors of the new colors and then I read on your blog what difficult time you just went through. I don't know you, but my heart and my prayers go out to you.
May your pain subside and your heart and soul heal...

Hi

I have had 5 miscarriages. All of them are bad and not all people are as kind and understanding as those who have submitted these messages. Take the time to grieve. Be kind to yourself. It was not your fault, your pixie was just not ready to arrive yet. I eventually had one healthy baby and she is the delight of my life. There can be happy ending. Hang in there!

my heart goes out to you, i know myself how horrible it feels, and that it will be a long time before you start to feel anything other than horrible again. It is an awfull, horrible thing to have to go through, and i will not bother you with terrible remarks like "everything happens for a reason" Somethings are just too awfull! My heart aches for you and your loss!
