...Because the Voices Tell Me To

Many knitters say they have so much yarn, they could open a store. I took that statement very seriously...I bought a yarn store. In July 2008, I became the proud owner of Stitch Cafe in Valley Village, California.

It has become an adorable place, with gorgeous yarns and amazing people. It's so much more than just a's a caring community.

I've always said that knitting is cheaper than therapy. It has brought me comfort, kept my hands busy, opened my mind for creative thought, brought me many dear friends, given me something for my mother and I to share, and has generally been a big part of who I am.

I knit all the time. And I do mean, ALL the time. Don't get me wrong...I'm not rude about it. I do know when to put it away...but I carry some knitting with me all the time, just in case I find the opportunity to take it out. Whenever I have to wait for anything or anyone, I take out my knitting. (The service writer at my car dealership asked if I would make him socks. No kidding.)

I usually have many, many projects going at one time. I tend to like variety in my life. Generally speaking, I have at least one project that's challenging,
one that's mind-numbingly simple,

one that uses some yarn that I've fallen in love with,

and several others...just because...

...the voices tell me to.

  1. Marcy, it was so night to meet you on Friday and to attend the Super Bowl Sunday sale. I, too, tend to have several projects going on, just as you described.

    Thank you for taking the leap to open the store in 2008!
