I feel like I start every post with “I know that I haven’t been here for a while,” it’s that guilt that eats at me when I neglect anything in my life. However, this silence has been mostly peaceful. I feel like I am finding my place in the world, finally. Or at least, I am allowing myself the grace to grow slowly. Our world is so fast paced, and I am always feeling left behind.
The thing is, I like going slowly. Once I allow myself to be slow, anyways. I like taking my time and listening to the birds, watching the sun shine through the trees; taking my time one word, one stitch, one step at a time.
So for Spruce Knits, this means that I am allowing myself to be slow. I am going to take my time to learn how to write patterns effectively.
This summer I am going to be rewriting my first three patterns. The Colorado Cowls. I will be editing them for better understanding.
I am also going to be relearning how to dye and find the colorways that sing to my soul. Spruce Fiber Co will be back in October.
I am also going back into the real world.
This year, I have been working on getting my teaching license. While, as of right now (Monday June 13 at 10:30 am) I don’t have a full time job. I am working as a long term sub at a middle school and I LOOOVE IT. This is what I was supposed to do. I can’t believe how fulfilling this job is for me. The kids, they’re kids, but they’re amazing. This is absolutely the right thing for me to do. I can’t wait to tell you more, and I am yearning for the opportunity to be a “real life teacher”
That’s it for the update. I hope that you are all doing well.
