I’m Kathy, the yarn lover behind this website.
I left my job in early 2014 because I couldn’t do it the way my bosses wanted me to (I wanted to work from home and they wanted me to commute to our offices an hour away every day.) I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in November of 2012, but the symptoms began in earnest when I changed medications for menopausal symptoms in June of 2013.
My main fibromyalgia symptoms are: fatigue, pain, and fibro fog. Most of this is better when I am getting enough sleep (consistent 9+ hours per night). I include this information because I think it’s important to acknowledge that we are all different.
Knitting and a few other things are what get me through the day.
