I love the way this skein of yarn turned out, although it wasn't how I originally intended to dye it. The natural color was medium to dark brown, so I wasn't sure how well it would dye, but I went ahead and put it in a purple dye bath with a skein of mohair. Well, mohair is a dye piggy, so it soaked all the dye up before it had done anything to this Shetland yarn. Since I had time to do another batch, I picked out the brightest, darkest color in my dye stash, which was a brilliant blue. It turned out a very nice color! 💙
It's been almost a year, I've planned to launch the last few purest indigo dyed fine Khadi (100 counts) sarees. Unfortunately, life took shifts and turns, slowly Menka started to fade away since 2016. I am still procrastinating, I don't know why... I have been talking about my depression and anxieties, but how many people will appreciate/like it in reality - what do you think? There are people who feel offended because they think I've been spreading negativities by writing about my struggles, but there are also few wounded souls who felt lighter when they realized that they are not the only one... I haven't sent many bills since May'17, neither I could hold back the customer services. I've been receiving many negative feedbacks because I couldn't reply the messages and still I feel anxiety whenever I see a new notification in Menka. It took four months to do benaroshi shoot, and red one is still left. But I'm trying to get back to the previous state, slowly, very slowly. Can you feel that? I can only feel better about it.
For me, Menka isn't just a regular online shop, it has become a place that heals my wounds. The saree stories about life, struggles and survivals made a huge impact on my mental health. It gives me courage and hope to become a better person than I was yesterday.
Menka is here today just because of my saree-stories indulged in struggles. If someone cannot be empathized on those struggle stories of mine, I don't ask them to leave from Menka or my life, instead I starts to disappear from their life.
We can't ask anyone to understand how do we feel when we go through these painful phases; you need to understand that we don't live on self-pity, you need to understand we are the warriors who survived everything and we still rise.
Menka has 23833 fans around the world, and we want to spread compassion, empathy and love among all of you. Menka's little steps towards the future will only bring lights into the darkness - this I promise you.
