We have been so busy. Please forgive the lack of updates. Here's what we've been up to!



And more painting!

It gets really messy trying to paint the ceiling as you can see below, lol...

Some of us wish we could be doing something else...looking longingly out the door :)

We are getting closer here. We have one more coat to go on the walls, then it's on to the floor! After that, things will be so much easier. Meanwhile, in the house with all the fun stuff (yarn) we have been compiling orders, knitting samples up as fast as possible, and falling into bed each night, lol! I am almost done with Maylie and have already started a display sock that I will Ravelry about soon.

We have had the wonderful opportunity to have some folks come out to visit and shop even though we just have it set up in the dining room. Fiber arts people are so great! We've been so honored to get to know more of you and we can't wait to be open now!

We have found another really awesome source for yarn and that is Frog Tree Yarns. They're mission statement says it all, they are non profit and they work to benefit so many people. We are so thrilled to be able to order from them. Their yarn is to die for! And Tricia, one of the owners, has this way of making it seem like you are her very favorite customer...all the time! I just love that! So, even though we haven't been very chatty lately, we have been being productive, we promise! We are beginning to see things come together and it's getting very real. It's so exciting!

I think I have mentioned it, but we have built a deck out back and we've started calling it the knitting sanctuary. We have 5 acres of forest behind the shop and it's so peaceful back there! We have added this gazebo, and I think I know where we will be spending most of our time this summer!

I can see many happy hours of knitting here. There is mosquito netting around the entire gazebo for those summer evenings. We are planning on doing some landscaping back here as well as adding a bench and some bird feeders. Doesn't that sound delightful?!

Ugh, I feel for you with all the painting. Love the back deck!! One day, I hope to pull up a chair and knit awhile.

I LOVE the back deck! I may do that for myself at home!

That looks like a cozy spot to knit, chat and enjoy some coffee or ice tea.

Everything looks so great!!!!! I can't wait to come out. I finished my blanket made from the awesome yarn Ashley dyed for me. It is beautiful. Thank you so much.
