I'm a bit late to this post but I just wanted to say that you are awesome and just say f### it to people who suck. **Hug**

Elemm,

I'm sorry if I misspelled your name! First off, I've been lurking around the Wollmeise site for awhile and trust me, I do not understand how you do all that you do with the site and still manage to have a life! I completely understand what you are feeling with the site and the yarnmongers who wish to hoard all the yarn, but those kind of people are out there in every market there is and while they may read the post they do not think they are the people you are talking about. Take care of yourself and please know that there are many of us that appreciate you and all that you do each day.

Lieber Victor,
es tut mir leid, dass Du so zwischen die Stühle geraden bist.
Übrigens zu Deiner Unterstützung, die Preise im Lanaiolo entsprechen der unverbindlichen Preisempfehlung der Hersteller. Und selbstverständlich solltest Du Kritik, die eigentlich an mich gerichtet werden sollte auch direkt an mich verweisen. Da mein Laden noch ziemlich neu ist, bin ich immer für konstruktive Kritik offen. Ich erkläre auch gerne, wie man als Einzelhändler kalkulieren muß.

Bis morgen, Katharina

Dear Victor,

"I do put on a brave face"

it is so sorry to read that!

You don't have to put on a brave face to be loved or to be respected for all the things you do!

You 've got my respect!

Go on! This way is your way!

Greetings from Ev

2008-05-13T02:39:00.000+02:00

You ar so right in your assessment of things. Greed, negative energy and just disturbance in the nature rhythm of knitters. I agree there is too much negativity lately with Ravelry. We all are greedy for Woolmeise and need to stop.

Your blog is so thoughtful, your knitting so beautiful and quick... I so appreciate your generosity in sharing and being courageous with your feelings and concerns. Dr. D is a lucky man.

Take care way over there and know there are many of us with you. Thank you.

2008-05-13T01:57:00.000+02:00

hugs for you, victor. i know how difficult long-distance relationships are, so whatever happens, i hope things work out for you and dr. d. i finally got ONE skein of wollmeise and i am happy with it! i'm just glad i was able to get the one. sorry you're feeling overwhelmed and down about things. i hope things get better soon. in the meantime, i agree that a break from ravelry forums might be a good idea. i had to stop reading the forums because it is such a timesuck, and the content is often a bunch of garbage. good luck!

2008-05-12T19:35:00.000+02:00

Whew! Feeling better?

@ Ravelry: Casey is starting to feel really embarrased about all the negative items popping up. He's trying to find a 'let's all get along solution' - but there's just a ton of us.

@ Wollmeise: yes, it worries me too. It's got to be stressful for you, Claudia, and Kris-- people are nuts for the stuff (ahem. I, of course, refuse to sell any in my stash :) - but I see people whine about it on Ravelry and it's just incredibly annoying! I shouldn't say this - but the user littlemy in particular drives me insane. Really, do you have to be this myopic and annoying online? She had a post on the Big Debate group (whinning about 'yarn cults' - a cover-up for her Wollmeise lust) and I just wanted to scream at her --- but I didn't. Of course, you're probably experiencing this tenfold, and I'm sorry.

Uggh.

The friends you're feeling left-out w. - are they in relationships? Is it possible that they feel you're busy w. Dr. D?

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you, re: Dr. D's work situation.

2008-05-11T21:05:00.000+02:00

I think you left these annoyances unexpressed for too long, and they grew bigger and fiercer than they should have. Venting is good. You should do it more often. I just hate to think of you being so tense for so long.

2008-05-11T18:18:00.000+02:00

I felt like this the whole month of April, especially to work-related things. Maybe the starns were aligned in some bad way. I don't want to state the obvious here but everything will work out in one way or another. Keep your head up - I know tons of people you appreciate you and everything you do!

2008-05-11T15:23:00.000+02:00

I'm so sorry things are sucky right now. I wish I had something more prolific to say, but I'm just not wordy enough. I haven't read any drama stuff on Rav, but I've heard some has been going on. I touched Woolmeise once before my cat at the sock. I'm okay with not having any, and other people should be too. They just need to get over and get on with their life. As for the friends, I kinda know how you feel. There are a lot of times when I just feel like an unwelcomed outsider (which sucks b/c I only have 2 friends, ROFL). And I'm happy that Dr. D makes you happy and I hope things happen for the best whatever does happen with his job. (((hugs)))

2008-05-11T13:39:00.000+02:00

I am somewhat sick of the negativity on the Ravelry boards as well, I just don't get any pleasure out of it and it makes me annoyed.
I think that consumers (esp. American ones) are very used to only thinking about the product and not the means of production, it doesn't even occur to them to think about the labor end of it, how it was produced, the benefit to the maker, etc.
Keep you chin up! Maybe taking a break from Internet concerns and renewing flesh and blood relationships would make you feel restored. Sending you warm thoughts:)

2008-05-11T13:29:00.000+02:00

Für mich war das einer der lesenswertesten und interessantesten Blogeinträge überhaupt. Ich bewundere Deine Offenheit, dazu gehört Mut und Selbstvertrauen.

Was Du mit dem Wollmeisengarn ansprichst, fällt mir bei Büchern in derselben Weise auf. Warum muss man für ein Exemplar von "Omas Strickgeheimnisse" bei Amazon 135 Euro hinblättern? Oder für "Knitting Marvelous Mittens" 139 Euro?

Für Deine Zukunft mit Dr. D drücke ich Dir die Daumen - meistens kommt alles nicht so schlimm, wie man es sich ausmalt...

Liebe Grüße
Tanja

2008-05-11T13:10:00.000+02:00

Sometimes we all need to say things, and I think you said yours well. I have no oppinion on the subject since I haven't experienced any of it, but I know that it can be good to voice your thoughts instead of hiding them. And this is you blog, thus your voice ;-)
Hope the mood improves.

2008-05-11T11:46:00.000+02:00

I'll be honest, your post irritates me somewhat. It is justified in some points and in some others it strikes me a bit as self-centered. I won't go into a discussion with you here as it's not the right place for lengthy conversations, but I also didn't feel like restraining myself from voicing my disagreement with you.

2008-05-11T11:30:00.000+02:00

You are too nice! Somtimes getting too involved in something, is not good. Learned that myself. I hope you feel a little better now, that you let off some steam, hope you can move on, and don't let you get down by all that's bothering you.
I'm sorry, if it would come to a long distant relationship, which is very hard to maintain, even if you really, really want too. I wish you well!
And about the higher prizes in the store you work. Of course they are higher, with a physical location, paying rent, it makes a difference to an online store, where you can work from anywhere. At a store you can touch the yarn, you can ask for help, meet people if you want to. It's nice to have a LYS, even if it's a little more expensive. And you work there, it's not your place to critizise your boss and her decicions.

2008-05-11T05:27:00.000+02:00

I truly appreciate that you are a person who wants to vent how he feels, I think that type of honesty is too rare! Thank you for the post. I am a Wollmeise hoarder too...I do get it from her shop whenever possible and it has been awesome swapping - I do appreciate your efforts and honestly wonder, how the heck do you keep up with the updates of all of the greedy fiber stashers? We sadly are becoming a greedy bunch - it is sad the world has become "I want it all, I want it now"...anyways I think it would be okay to step back if you need/ want to and let people figure it out:) I think you are a special person and to heck with the haters! Take care and hug yourself for me! Keep doing what you are doing, I have had fun vicariously hanging out with you. ;)

2008-05-11T00:30:00.000+02:00

Hey Wollmeisen boy,

Don't feel bad. You have your opinions and they are valid.

I personally have been going and hiding in my studio and swatching (not really my favorite thing) and avoiding the on-line community because when I stand up to support someone or say hey look at it this way people get mad at me.

Somewhere somehow things are in a grumpy period. Maybe Oscar the Grouch has sprinkled grouchy dust over the earth. Hopefully the coming of Spring will cause people to settle down.

To this day I have not gotten any Wollmeise yarn because I don't want to be part of the crazy melee. I have been tempted to order directly from her and wait on a shipment, but then I remember how busy she must be and don't order to add to the stress.

Take time for yourself and don't stress out too much.

2008-05-10T21:16:00.000+02:00

Hey Elemm,

As a long distance admirer, I would just like to say "Down with the haters and the users! Knitters and non-knitters alike." Eff'em.

As for ravelry - take a break from the forums. Worked for me.

2008-05-10T20:24:00.000+02:00

Big Hugs from OR, I don't think you should regret your post one jot. This is your space! :)

I hope things look up soon!

2008-05-10T19:49:00.000+02:00

Another one who is de-lurking here...:-) I sympathise with you! Sounds like life is stressful for you on all fronts. Chalk up a big part of it to writing that thesis. I've been there, and any time you're under extra stress, it affects all of your relationships with others in your life. Give it some time, and those problems you have now may not seem so bad afterall. Though, having Dr D possibly moving away certainly doesn't help!

Do you read Crazy Aunt Purl? She posted recently how it seems like everyone in California is extra stressed out (link: http://www.crazyauntpurl.com/archives/2008/05/the_buck_of_the_1.php). I'm thinking it's not just in CA, it's the whole world. The Iraq War, the wheat and rice shortages, the world wide economy. Life is just plain stressful for so many of us right now, it seems only natural that everyone is freaking out in their own way...and maybe for some of us, it means going nuts over Wollmeise. ;-)

Hang in there. All things come to an end. The stress of the changes in your life will eventually pass and I'm sure your friends care for you just as much as ever! :-)

Sounds that you need tons of hugs at the moment.
I'll squeeze some through the lines.
Take care of you!
