A long-overdue update!


You may remember that I used to knit things, and blog about that. Then again, you may not, considering how rarely I did just that.

I seem to be finally settling down here in the England. My Indefinite Leave to Remain was recently approved by the Home Office, meaning that I am now officially a permanent resident of the United Kingdom! With that worry off my shoulders, and my health at least stable, I have decided to slowly venture back into the knitting world. I am still not taking commissions, but when my good friend Jessica asked me if I would write for the blog on her own website (where you can order things!), I eagerly agreed. So if for one reason or another you missed my writing, you can check it out over at Silver’s Knitted Treats, specifically The Daily Binder section.

If and when I start to knit again, expect some cross-posts from there to here. 🙂

Not as planned

So, I did indeed travel to the UK, and stayed with my fiancé for a good long while. In fact, I stayed a whole week longer than I had planned, due to some travel mishaps. At any rate, I am now back in the states, and very, very far behind in my queue.

Moving, especially to a different country, is not exactly easy. In the process of bringing over my possessions, I had to leave some important things back here. That included all of my acrylic yarn, and my fiberfill stuffing, both of which are vitally important to my work. Long story short: I didn’t get any work done while in England, and despite being back a week, I still have not done any. All I can do is apologise and promise to work harder, but that won’t make my commissions be done when I had promised them. I am very, very sorry. If anyone was expecting a commission to be finished by this point and won’t have it in time, I am more than willing to refund their down payment and cancel their order.

I have to reorganise my queue once again, as well, as the European orders I had placed on higher priority are just going back to their original positions. In addition, I still have quite a lot of wedding planning to do, considering it’s only three months away and I haven’t even finalised the guest list. It’s going to take me a while to sort out my orders and my site (and my life, for that matter), but hopefully I will be back up to speed soon. Thanks, everyone, for understanding and being patient.


This Saturday, I’m leaving for a month. Where am I going? England! 🙂 I will be living with my fiancĂ© and trying to get as many things sorted out as possible. We’re getting married this autumn, so the more I accomplish now, the easier things will be for the both of us when it’s time for me to actually move.

What does this mean with regards to commissions? I’m still accepting them, and updating my queue. The thing is, there may be more of a delay than I had at first told you because of my travelling. I am going to focus on the European commissions while I am in England, because it will be faster for European customers to receive them from there. My queue page will be rearranged to reflect this. No one has been forgotten or ignored. If I finish all of the European commissions during my month stay, I will work on the North American ones again; I won’t stall on your projects just because I’m in the UK.

Thank you all for supporting me by ordering items, spreading the word about my site, or even just reading my blog. It means so much to me to help support myself by doing something I truly love, and something that I hope makes others happy.
