It’s another gray and gloomy day outside today – but inside Loopy Central things couldn’t be more cheerful! The yarn continues to arrive. Yesterday brought boxes from Yarntini (a new cashmere sock – yum!) and all of this new Noro Kureyon Sock Yarn. Isn’t it gorgeous? We bought LOTS of it for you, and we will have it up next week. The colors are amazing, in typical Noro fashion!
I’m always a little amazed at how many of you are up late into the night. This becomes particularly evident when I do a late night Sneak Up (like this week – midnight on Monday night) and I watch the numbers of people shopping on the website go up and up and up within a few minutes of the Loopy Groupie Heads Up going out. I’m glad to know that I’m not the only night owl. Sooner or later I’m going to have to get a key to the Sleep Center across the hall so that I can just toddle over there to bed. (Ok, ok. Three blocks from home. I can make it back there to bed, even on those late nights.) Speaking of the Sneak Up, I did gulp a little bit when I saw that we had 1043 different yarns in stock here after that update. That means 1043 different colorways currently in stock (and of course multiples of each one. I will have to have Web Guy tell me how many skeins we’re up to now. Or maybe I don’t want to know. I would say that I have sufficiently risen to the occasion of filling up the extra space we gained when we moved over here….)
Loopy Friend and customer Tina, aka – the Knitting Contessa, kindly asked me to do an interview with her for the holiday season. She’s featuring some fun things on her blog this month – you ought to go over and take a look!
Thank you again for all of your fun RAK comments on Monday’s blog. This week’s winner of the Loopy Loot gift package (drawn randomly from all of the comments) is: Patricia. (Patricia has been emailed, so if you’re Patricia, check your in-box!) Keep up the great work out there. It really is more fun to be on the giving end than the receiving end, isn’t it?
Back to work. We still have a lot of your Sneak Up orders to get out (because you all really really had fun again this week. Those Cherry Tree Hill yarns just zoomed right out of here!) We also have a couple of Loopy Elves out sick (or out sick with sick kids). Tis the season, right? But all the rest of us are here and cheerfully packing up and sending out as fast as we can. (And waiting to see what the UPS lady brings today…..)
