Once again we come to the Holiday Season . . .

Business has really jumped this month. With the economy the way it is, people tend to stay home. Instead if spending $3000 for a Christmas cruise, the plan is cancelled, but $300 for a nice purchase of yarn is much more in the budget. So as a treat to sacrificing that big trip or jewelry, crocheters and knitters award themselves with some nice yarn.

With the increase in outgoing shipments, incoming shipments also increase. This week Lorna's Laces and Cascade both arrived on the same day, as well as a case of swifts. Is this a mess or what?? But this is what I want. Who does not want a successful business??

Cascade is introducing 2 new yarns. Eco Alpaca and Alpaca Lace. I will be getting those in, but more on those in another post. Need to get the web page created for them. Alpaca is my favorite yarn! Even more so than Cashmere!

Cascade also has about 20 new colors in Fixation. I have the color cards now up online, and the order scripts on the Fixation page. The new colors will be in stock in approx 10 days.
Janene is working today, a Saturday. Janene pulls all the orders, I check and Janene boxes. She also checks in stock and keeps the store looking neat. She tells me she is ready for me to start checking, so if I want to get your orders out today, I better get going! Have a great weekend!

I am so glad I found your site. I am teaching myself how to crochet and started my first project about 2 weeks ago. It is a slow process but I really enjoy it. It is something I always wanted to learn becuase my Mom used to crochet and that is probbly my fondest memory of her is her sitting there working her little fingers away
I was worried that I would be stuck with the selections at Walmart and I was happy to find out that wasn't true.

I was very happy to find your site, it was recommended to me by a lady at work.
I am teaching myself how to crochet and started my first project two weeks ago and of course I just jumped in with both feet to make a blanket! lol
It is a slow process but I really enjoy it and have always wanted to learn. It is the fondest memory I have of my Mother, with her sitting for hours working her little fingers away making special gifts for everybody.
