My partner and I run an small organic farm in Kirkfield, about 45 minutes south and east of Orillia. Recently, I was diagnosed with a mass on my brain and subsequently underwent surgery at Kingston General Hospital. This surgery left me with many staples in my skull and upon release, I learned that I would have to under go several more procedures before this comes to some kind of level playing field. The prognosis is good I guess, I am fully mobile and there has been no effect on my speech, brain function, or attitude to date. I can still enjoy our garden and I do. With summer fast drawing to a close, my priority has been to get beyond this and enjoy what is left of the great weather before we need to hunker in and deal with the snow. I cruised the web thinking I might be able to knit or crochet a hat myself (vanity can be your friend ...it will always give you the will to try to look your best no matter how bad you really look). There is a practicality here too. I need to protect my tender skin from the sun and wind. I found a site called Cabin Fever and it sounded like the kind of women I would want to work with so I contacted them looking to hire a knitter, only to find out they had changed their focus and where no longer in retail. They, however, suggested I contact Sandra and Kitrina at Purl3. Their response was almost instant. They offered to knit for me and we made arrangements to meet with Kitrina at the shop. I am delighted to say that I have two hats on the go, one being knitted by each of them after Kitrina helped me select the most beautiful yarn I have ever seen. I can hardly believe my good fortune to have found them. They deserve great success in this lovely little shop.
