Well it’s clear that I need a whole new top row of buttons on my computer. Thanks for weighing in with your one-click suggestions on Friday’s blog. There are 14 buttons on the top row of my keyboard (the one that starts with the ESC button), so I figure I could easily add 14 more just above that. After reading your great ideas, I have decided that my 14 buttons will be:
Coffee Break (which I started with), Dinner Delivery, Nap, Stop time for 1 hour, Bonus Money, Fast Forward to Quittin’ Time, Chocolate, Knit, No Interruptions for an hour (Diane said a half hour, but I’d need an hour), Sample It, Oh Shoot (to recall an email that you sent by mistake), Swatch It, Grocery Shopping, Automatic Bill Pay, and Instant Masseuse. That ought to do it. Makes life and work much easier.
(And I laughed at Pat’s response: “My husband already thinks I have a Loopy Ewe button that brings me yarn!” Loopy would look cute on a button.)
Do you know what else Loopy looks cute on? Sweatshirts. We have a new color/style for you in today’s update. This time, we ordered Navy Zip Up Hoodie Sweatshirts and had Loopy embroidered on them, for a nicer look. They turned out so cute and the sweatshirts are a substantial weight, so they cozy you right up. They come in sizes Small through 3X and are uni-sex sizes, so they run a little big. Although I like my sweatshirts a little on the big size, especially ones that I wear as a jacket.
In addition to Loopy on sweatshirts, we also have new short sleeved t-shirts. We put one of our favorite knitting quotes on there (found on an old sampler) that says: “In the rhythm of the needles there is music for the soul.” (We also used that quote on the Baggu Bags in the March Club Loopy Kits.) We got these in chocolate brown (mmmm, chocolate ….) and they also come in sizes Small through 3X. This is ladies sizes, slightly fitted, 100% pre-shrunk cotton.
Also up in today’s Update you’ll find:
Universal’s Cotton Supreme Batik (in fun new colors)
Spirit Trail Fiber’s Sunna (that gorgeous blend of 75% superwash merino, 15% Cashmere, and 10% Bombyx Silk)
Dream in Color’s Smooshy (re-stocks of your favorite colors)
HiyaHiya Dumpling Cases (which have been on backorder for a long time. Sorry about that!)
Lastly, as many of you have already discovered, our third and final Spring Club Loopy kit went up for sale at the end of the week last week. I’m waiting on posting photos just because so many of you have them en route and I know you like to be surprised. But if you click here, you can see photos and you can order one for yourself. We do still have a few kits available from February and March. Each kit contains the exclusively dyed yarn for that month, two patterns, and a different size/color of Baggu Bag with a different knitting quote. We’ve had fun with this Spring Club Loopy Trio, and thank you for all of your nice emails about them. I’m glad you’ve liked them, too!
