Mission: Clean the Clutter

I'll have to say, being closed to clean and reorganize was not that much fun! I missed open knit night. I missed seeing my customer friends. I missed Randy and Marcus delivering those fun brown and blue & white boxes. I'll admit, I'm a pack-rat. Always thinking I might need something later. So I stuff it behind something only to not remember where it is when I DO in fact need it. Or never think of it again (more like it).

Anyhoo....with the help of lots of people (Steve, Susan, Belva, Pat, Zana, Tiffany and Mom) the shop is looking smashing! The sale bin is full, the yarn room has some spaces ready for new arrivals, and the wall of hand-dyed yarn still makes me stop and stare. Really pretty.

I'm trying to create an inviting ambiance in the kitchen so we can spill over on Knit Nights and not feel like we're banished to the kids table. We found a pair of cute white wrought iron chairs, covered in popping pink, that remind me of 50's ice cream parlor chairs. I like them.

So...I can't wait to see all of you. To hear what you've been up to and to show off our new found space. Thanks for understanding and being patient about the closing. Bring in your projects to show off. Remember, Ice Cream Social this Wednesday-bring your favorite topping.

Happy Knitting!!
