another busy week at The Yarn Store

Meant to post last Sunday, but time is just slipping by. Didn't get much knitting done this week. A bit in the evening, but progress is slow. All 3 current projects are so close to the end. Received a big box from Cascade (as well as our weekly shipment from Lorna's Laces). Mostly the Cascade 220 Superwash. Sure like how this knits up. A nice basic, classic wool. All that is left is the hood for this children's zippered jacket. Probably won't get to it for 2 weeks. I should get the zippers in for it next week. Found some nice large-toothed plastic zippers, in a fairly good match. I expect them in next week.

Knitting Pure and Simple has 4 new patterns, and that has caused us to totally rearrange the patterns in the store. The rack that held them has no room, so Sarah is moving them all to a rattan folding basket. Seems like more and more patterns are moving to this arrangement. They do stay nice and clean this way.
Sarah is my partime help. She was/is my daughter's girlfriend from high school. She helps 4+ hours a day with shipping out, freight in and keeping the store very organized. Sarah crochets a little, but has never knit. With the new Potter Pattern book coming out, she's serious about learning to knit.
Flying down to Carlsbad (San Diego) this weekend with hubby. His daughter, husband and 3 grandchildren live down there. The oldest is big into soccer. In fact she is a certified rep. So we have alot of games to be watching. I'll be sure to bring the knitting!! Sarah will be pulling and boxing orders over the weekend. We fly back in Monday night, so there will be alot of freight going out on Tuesday. You all have a great weekend!!!
