My mind is full, full, full - I'm feeling slightly (ok, alot!) overwhelmed - BUT I have managed to accomplish some 'store' stuff. I have a phone number, I have a 1-800 number that ends in KNIT, I know what I have to do to get the electricity in my name, I've arranged for debit cards to be accepted at the store, oh right, and internet...........got a list of new yarn to buy. We get the store on August 1 and plan to paint that first weekend and then we have to wait for the new carpet to be installed and then we move in ----my expected opening day will be September 4th with a grand opening a week or so later after we work out any kinks. Thank you all for your wonderful comments - they mean alot to me - my dad was reading my blog and said, you have alot of friends. I said that I hadn't met most of the people who commented but yes, I do feel as if I have lots of friends!
And I have been knitting - how about that? Here's the STR sock that I'm mad at. I am so ticked off by the toe I have no idea when it will come off the needles - I've even contemplated ripping it out but that seems a bit excessive - there's just a few more rows to finish it - I really should do that today.
When Sarah came with me to see the store and pay the first and last rent - she innocently mentioned samples for the store on our way home - yikes - that completely slipped my mind. I guess my 1000 single socks are not really going to do it. So....I dug through my stash and found this: Fleece Artist Goldilocks Shawl in Mineral, I think. A mindless knit which is probably really good for me at the moment!
And of course, I had to start a whole new project - even had to go buy the yarn for it - it's Lizard Ridge from Knitty and here's my first square. Only 23 more to go! Don't you think it will just look beautiful on display at the store? I do and yes, I'm going to carry Noro Kureyon.
I'm number 711 on Ravelry - no invite yet!
