Things are going well...

Just a quick note 'cuz I haven't posted in a long while. Things are going well. The Marin Independent Journal (the local newspaper) printed a great little article about the store several weeks ago, ostensibly to publicize the Knit For Her Cure event that we held on the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend. The article ran on the front page (bottom) of the Home & Garden section. The phone started ringing at 9:50 am the day that the article ran. 'Where are you located? What are your hours? Etc." The previous trickle of new customers turned into a steady stream once the article ran, and it has yet to let up! Sure, we've had a slow day here and there (like last Thursday during our first big rain storm of the season), but in general sales are getting better and better as time goes on. Many, many people are very interested in classes; I am almost finished planning the class schedule for Jan/Feb. It will feature beginning knitting, crochet, socks, lace, finishing techniques, and a 'my first sweater (vest)' class taught by the lovely and talented Barbara B.

Tomorrow I'll try to take pictures of the store... quite a bit of yarn has come in during the past few weeks.

From here on in I plan on talking a lot about the yarns we have and the projects we are working on.

More to come...
