Thank you so much for making our first open day so wonderful! We enjoyed hearing all the oohs, and ahhs! The weeks of preparation have been worth it! Seeing all of you enjoying our little shop with us was very satisfying. Conversation and laughter was the theme of the day. We have some beautiful yarns, and still have more coming. We have made many new friends, and reunited with many old friends. Linda knows everyone in Shreveport I'm convinced, many hugs and well wishes we're given. I've really enjoyed meeting all of the wonderful people she has worked with over thirty two years. I am in awe of these men and women who have given so many years teaching our children. This week has been a revelation to me in terms of having a real "job" to go to. Not that I haven't worked but, leaving my home everyday to go to another job is really different. Getting up and being presentable every day of the week is interesting too. The coolest thing though is this, I spent many hours and days at Nancy's knit shop, and always felt somewhat guilty for being there so much and not being at my home cooking,cleaning,decorating,doing yard work..all the usual things we stay at home moms do. Well, this is the cool part...Now my job is being at the knit shop!!! I don't have to feel guilty anymore!!!! Yay! My job is to hang out with awesome people, and be surrounded by gorgeous yarns, and inspiration for lots of new projects!
We have a wonderful day planned for this Saturday. Heidi Sunday,the representative for Plymouth Yarns is coming to teach us how to use a wonderful iPad application,A Knit Companion. This app is so useful and full of great tools to help us be better knitters. I love technology and all the things it allows us to navigate, and see. If you have an iPad, and want to learn more about this great application please come on Saturday at 9:00-12:00. If possible come by the shop today or call and get your name on the list for this class. There is a 20$ fee, and you must have the app downloaded on your iPad. And its free right now!. Heidi is also bring in the newest yarns to show us all, and has some prizes for us too!., Hope to see you today and everyday if you choose, and thank you again for your support, and kindness! Just keep knitting!
I am just a simple knitter who is living the dream of running a yarn store, where beautiful yarn is turned into wonderful products and friendships are knit together just as wonderfully! I hope to just share my joy of fiber arts and the joy of sharing with you, as well. Enjoy!
