Out with the old, in with the new. I've been busy tying up loose ends for a fresh start in the new year. As I get ready to ring in another year, it's a good opportunity to pause and reflect on the outgoing year.
It was a busy, inspiring, eventful year for Dirty Water DyeWorks. From Sock Summit to Rhinebeck and everything in between . . . it was fun to meet so many of you in person at events in New England and beyond. The 2012 calendar is filling up, and it promises to be another year with plenty of travel and adventure.
New yarn lines will be offered in the coming year along with fresh colorways and kits. Some items will be retired to make way for the new. It's all part of the process.
In business and in life it's often good to cast your net wide. There's a certain thrill because you never know what will come back. Sometimes there are disappointments, often times there are surprises. And there's always the challenge to make the best of the situation and move forward.
I'm reminded on a daily basis that inspiration can be found almost anywhere - even amidst the junk mail.
Paper snowflake magic.
Best wishes for the new year and the challenges ahead.
