After a surprisingly intensive application and screening process, there is finally a light at the end of the tunnel: I am (almost) a volunteer at OTMH, in the role of Knitting Instructor for the Adult Mental Health Day Program. Hooray!
The official offer was delivered to my inbox on Thursday, June 22nd, and just one week later I was attending a comprehensive volunteer orientation.
Now, all that's left to do is wait for the lab tests to come back. If I don't have T.B. (God, I hope not!), I'll be cleared for service and can start sharing the love of knitting--and its therapeutic benefits--with a brand new audience. Oh, the anticipation! I'm nervous, excited, and very, very honoured.
Welcome to cold comfort!
I'm Alexis Adrienne, and I design modern, feminine hand-knits, from the softest, squishiest, most decadent natural fibres. Things to know about me:
My spirit animal is a sheep.
My primary knitting fuel is vanilla-hazelnut coffee.
My inner child is actually an inner senior-citizen :)
