Two More Letters

Well, that Alphabet Soup seems to keep getting longer and longer each year!

Anyway, I've got lots to talk about but I'm going to take a bit of a break and so, once again, I'm opening myself up to a Reader's Q & A.

Ask me anything!

I'll answer any questions that come in in the next week....

Riddle me this, Ruth!

Did you enjoy being a massage therapist? If so, why? I always wonder when I get a massage if the person giving it is actually enjoying it, or if it's just a job and they're really watching the clock and thinking about what they're going to do after work.

This is for Yarnhog. I'm a massage therapist too, like Ruth, and I have to say it is an incredibly enjoyable thing to do. While there are some massage therapists who, undoubtably, think of it as just a job, the really good ones don't.

Trust me, the client can tell whether the massage therapist is focused on him or her or is thinking of something else. It will come through in the therapist's touch.

There is something amazing about feeling the muscles and other soft tissues respond to our touch. It is the therapeutic connection between the therapist and the client that makes it worthwhile and fulfilling to perform massage.

Massage therapy is so much more than the therapist just doing some techniques. When it is done correctly, with genuine concern and regard for the client, it is a way to have human to human contact for no other reason than to help someone else feel better. It doesn't get any better than that.

I've been a massage therapist for 19 years. I can't imagine ever doing anything else.

How did you come up with the idea for your stitch savers, and do you do other metalwork as well?

That's technically two questions. . .sorry!

And tattoos? Pictures? Whys?
And how did you meet your husband?
And are the kids a detour, or was this the plan?
Coffee or tea?
Favorite artist? Favorite color?
Favorite time of day?

you never talk about your family - just your husbands family - why?

Hi, Ruth
I am new to Ravelry and came across your blog trying to purchase
Color Waves yarn which you are trying to sell. I guess my question is, will you contact me re
shipping, etc.? My e-mail address is dr322@aol.com Thanks, Donna
