Hello to all of you who have come over from Ravelry, or from word of mouth around town!
I want to say thanks for the feedback I've received so far.
I'm definitely going to stock kid friendly yarns in my store, and as for the "fun colors", I think people of ALL ages should wear fun colors, so there will be plenty of cheerful, bright color in the shop. Beige is definitely an enemy of mine, but there will be neutrals for those crafters with more conservative tastes.
I'm definitely going to have knitalongs and have so many ideas for other activities/events. Hopefully there will be a good deal of interest and people as "dorkily enthusiastic" as I am!
Not sure yet if I will be carrying Addi needles, but will definitely look into it! Notions are the last thing I'm figuring out.
I look forward to meeting you all!
I ordered some great patterns today - a cabled hoodie, a baby jumper, felted hat and more - and am so excited to receive them in the mail! I also ordered about 1/3 of the yarn that we'll be stocking. Within the next few days I'll take some teaser pictures to show you all a glimpse of the fun. I hope you're all stitching up a storm in preparation for the cool breezes on the way!
