happy spring! hard to believe we are experiencing such warm weather and it’s so enjoyable. however, we all know we will pay the price this summer — more bugs, more ticks, more fleas, etc….. the other drawback for me personally is that i have not been able to tap my maple trees this year. it has to be above freezing in the day and below freezing at night. the positive aspect is that my sheep and goats are due to birth any time now and this nice weather will make it more relaxing (for me at least!).
i have been SOOO busy at the shop. it is TOTALLY rearranged! i decided to do a full-blown inventory as well as moving ALL the yarn around BY WEIGHT! i think this will be helpful, as i have been asked SO many times “where is your sock yarn” and i have to dart around saying ‘here’ ‘and here’ ‘and here’. well you get the picture. it was a bigger job than i thought but i’m just about done and am very happy with it.
i have orders in for new yarns, including some favorites and some brandy-new yarns. one of our ‘old’ favorites – youghiogheny yarns as well as meadow croft dye works. i will be carrying some spencer hill yarns out of new york, shirsty cat yarn out of eastern PA, knit circus, and more — these are all small local dyers that i am happy to support and to offer my customers their wonderful yarns. i am offering new accessories including knit picks needles, blocking pins, lace blocking wires, chiagoo needles, carbonz needles, kitty cat tape measures, and too much more to mention. you need to come shop on april 7th when i reopen to see all the goodies!
