As you might have guessed from the title and overall tone of my last few posts, I will be closing Mercurial Knits. I may change this site into a personal knitting blog, but for now, I have no plans for it.
I will be refunding everyone who has sent me a down payment for a commission within a month, most likely in early January. I’m sorry it took me this long to decide what to do, and I know it is likely frustrating to those of you who paid for items years ago and won’t receive these. Again, I apologise.
When I started this business, I never imagined the number of commissions I would receive. It was flattering and fun to work on them. As I got married, moved to another country, then fell ill and even suffered unexpected family tragedy, my work felt increasingly like a burden. I underestimated what the stress of all these events (both good and bad) would do to me. To make things worse, a huge amount of my yarn became infested with bugs over the summer, so I had to throw those skeins away. I haven’t replenished my supply.
The refund emails will all be clearly labelled “Mercurial Knits refund” and will all come through PayPal. Thank you to everyone who has ever enjoyed my work and/or supported me on this long journey.
