screenshot_01Holy cow do we ever have a lot of boxes mucking up the works here at Loopy Central. Well, maybe “mucking up” isn’t the nicest way to put it. They are filled with wonderful yarn. Should I say “crowding out everything” instead? The lobby is full, the kitchen is full, and the UPS/Fed Ex guys just keep bringing more. I’d show you a picture but I think I’d scare you. If you’re coming to shop in person in the next couple of weeks, just keep your eyes halfway closed and ignore them. We’re unpacking them and getting the new stuff up just as fast as we can. Today’s update list is down below.

DSC00016Did you watch the finale of LOST last night? (No spoilers here). It’s an ending that I will have to think about and process for awhile. I can’t decide if I liked it or not. But did you know that Starbucks had Dharma coffee last night? Seriously. Check out Knitting Daughter’s cup. Cool, right? (Ok, so her friend Dima made the cup sticker, just for the finale. But Starbucks definitely SHOULD have had Dharma cups last night….) We had to stay up and watch Jimmy Kimmel and discuss possible theories after it was over. Still pondering. Had to get a non-Dharma Starbucks coffee this morning to wake myself back up again.

DSC00014We went up to Iowa to see a wedding this past weekend. It was for the middle son of our friends Steve and Janice. Web Guy flew in from FL late Friday night and Knitting Daughter arrived home from college that night. We drove up on Saturday morning and drove back on Sunday (dropping Web Guy back at the airport on our way into town.) Since our kids have been friends with Steve and Janice’s kids their whole life (literally), it was fun that we all could be there, even though it involved some traveling puzzlework to make it happen. It was a beautiful wedding and now the happy couple are off honeymooning in the mountains.

We do have contest winners from last week’s blog contest. Thanks to all of you who participated! There were almost 1200 comments, so we used the random number generator to pick 5 winners. We’ll be sending out your Wollmeise this week! Congratulations to: Cheryl R. in MI, Diane H. in IL, Barbara A. in Australia, Christine H. in MO, and Shirley N. in MN!

Finally, I know you’re wondering what went up in tonight’s Update. We have added in: The Sanguine Gryphon Bugga, Fleece Artist Trail Sock, new 3AM Large and Petite KIP bags, String Theory Hand Dyed in Caper/Bluestocking/Merino DK, Cascade 220 re-stocks, Schaefer Anne/Audrey/Heather, Louet Gems Fingering, SOAK wash, and new animal patterns by CID Hanscom Designs. So many fun things – come see!

I’m off for a bit now, but I’ll be back to the blog on Friday, June 4th, with photos and tales of Germany. Of course the Elves will keep things rolling here at The Loopy Ewe while I’m gone, and watch for next week’s Update on TUESDAY night (since Monday is Memorial Day). Web Guy will send out the Loopy Groupie email. Maybe I can talk him into doing a quick blog post that day to let you know what went up. (Or you can just click on the “See What’s New” link on the homepage sometime next Tuesday night – that will work, too!) If you have questions while I’m gone, call in to Loopy or email Susan ( :-)
