Owning a local independent yarn shop was never in any career plan that I made in high school or college. I studied and trained to be a high school French teacher. I even worked in the field for six years – but no matter how much I loved teaching, I was frustrated with how much being an educator in my district had shifted towards paperwork and meetings (and thus away from the work that mattered to help my students succeed). After my daughter’s birth, I took stock of the situation and decided to step away from the academic classroom.
