Things have been super busy around here. I started working again – full time! I had been looking for a job since June, something full time, but couldn’t find work. I sent my CV everywhere, went on plenty of interviews, but nothing was quite the right fit. So instead of going out and finding a job, I decided to buy a business instead. Owning a business is a lot more work than working for someone else, but I think this job will be much more rewarding that anything else out there.
I think it was karma that I couldn’t find a job. A local yarn shop went on the market over the summer and I looked into it, and placed an offer my offer was accepted. I did my due diligence period and today, the deal was finalized and I am now the owner of Les Lainages du Petit Mouton (aka The Wool Shop), a local yarn shop near my house. (The website is a work in progress, I’ll let you know when I launch a proper site). You can like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and join our Ravelry Group.
I am very excited for this new venture, and it couldn’t be a better fit for me. I have so many ideas and have already started to order new stock to come into the shop. Owning a yarn shop was my dream back in 2007 when I started Robyn’s Nest (2007-2010) and finally I made this dream a reality. It really is a dream job.
If you ever find yourself in Montreal, feel free to stop in the shop & say hello as I’ll be working at the shop.
