Well here it is Monday evening, and still no blog for the day. Where has the day gone? Well, here is a bit of what kept me busy and blogless today: Boxes coming in and boxes going out. This is pretty much the way it is around here. The yarns come in, and the yarns go out. It’s a good thing. (You know, they look a lot nicer going out, don’t they?) Just an FYI for you – I’m heading out of town on Thursday (I’ll tell you about it in Wednesday’s post) so we’re not putting any more new yarns up on the website until next Monday evening. That way, WH and Knitting Daughter will have just manageable amounts of orders to get out while I’m gone. But OH MY do I ever have great stuff to put up next week and in the weeks to come. Things are really exciting around here! I have more Apple Laine that arrived today, and our newest indie dyer (Perchance to Knit) shipped our order today. Zen String shipped to us last week but it hasn’t arrived yet, and more Panda Cotton shipped today. We also have more Yarn Pirate, more All Things Heather, Sweet Georgia, 4 brand new lines, and 2 new accessories expected in any day. Plus more Loopy, Louise and Bart stitchmarkers arrived today. And just wait till I tell you about the new stitchmarkers Katie’s going to do for us, and the other cute ones she’s doing. Picture on Wednesday. But remember – I’m saving all of this to put up next Monday night …. or Tuesday. We’ll see how much I can get done on my first day back from my long weekend off. You will definitely want to check in. Consider yourself warned…..
Today IS the day that I announce the winner of the February Blog Contest and the person who gets the monthly Loopy Loot! Your knitting tips were amazing – what a treasure trove of ideas. Thank you so much for sharing them. I loved reading through every one of them and I know others did as well. We had 146 entries and I used the random number generator to pick a winner. The winner is: Tracey! Tracey, email me your address (sheriATtheloopyeweDOTcom) and I’ll get your fun prize out to you.
That’s all for now – back to unpacking boxes of new stuff, waiting for their debut. Hugs to you all.
