Gift ideas

We are highlighting some awesome gift ideas here at Enchanted from now until Christmas. These are all items that would make wonderful additions to your Christmas list, and they are all under $30!

Gorgeous needle gauge pendants ($16)

Solmate mismatched socks come in cotton or wool, we carry baby sizes all the way up to adult. These are a personal favorite around here! ($17 cotton, $22 wool)

Unique and beautiful knitting needle jewelry
by Australian artist Liana Kabel. ($28.95)

Knit Lights are too cool! Just the perfect thing for those dimly lit rooms,
or when you need to get just a few more stitches in before bed :) ($10)

Adorable knitted felting kits from Crafty Alien.
These kits are all inclusive, and very simple! ($12)

These are on sale until Christmas 40% off! ($26.00)

This Hand Dye Kit has been designed using Louet's Gems Merino Superwash wool yarn (enough for a beautiful hand-dyed pair of socks) and 3 - 10gm containers of acid dyes by Gaywool. This is a simple, safe, in your kitchen method of creating your own unique hand dyed yarn. The kit includes three 50gr skeins of fingering weight merino, three 10gr cans of dye, 1 squeeze bottle and a sample bottle of Meadows Wool Wash soap.

What we've been up to

Well, here's a small update. Uncle Paul has now departed and we are left doing some minor finishing work. Of course, without him it's not getting done nearly as fast as we would like :) Oh, well! This week we got our sign put up outside the entrance to the shop.

The fairy door actually was put in before Uncle Paul left,
but we just never got around to taking a pic before now.

As you can see through the door, our holiday decorations are up and we are in full swing for the season! I am starting some Christmas projects myself, already feeling behind of course! :) Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Latest news

We have all but finished our main room in the addition. While we do have some touch up and finishing work to do on the classroom, we are definitely open for business now and have our fireplace put in and everything! :) Here are a few pics! Our trunk show is underway and we are still getting submissions. Come bring your items by so we can display them!

Look how close we are!!

Please forgive our long absence here at the blog. We have been working our fingers to the bone every day and falling into bed every night. We would never have been able to do all this without the unfailing devotion and assistance from some very awesome people. Sending a shout out to Peggy, Gayla, Steve, Mary, Judy, Brady, William and Cheryl. You guys have been such a help, we are so lucky to have you all in our lives!

So, here's an update in pictures. We almost have everything done by now except the ceiling fans put in the new section. Now to touch up the old section, finish out the classroom/dyeing studio and we're done! It's really starting to take shape, and it's amazing how much more room we have. We walk into the old section and wonder how we ever fit all of that in there! Thanks again to everyone for your patience and understanding with us on this whole thing. It's been so much work, but I think it is going to be worth it. We can't wait for you to see the new Enchanted!

while we assist in the difficult part of the job...;)

And I just thought this would make a pretty picture, lol.

Things are in a bit of disarray

Putting together miles upon miles of shelving...whew!

Look at all that yarn!

Uncle Paul, hard at work

Things are starting to look a bit cleaner

Resting after a very long day. This was at 10:30 last night!

Things are moving right along here! We have gotten all the painting done today except for the flooring. We just want to make sure that it's clear that although we are technically open, we need to ask for patience and understanding from our customers who wish to stop by. We are more than happy to help you locate anything you are looking for, and hope to have the shelves up and in place for the yarn by Thursday. Unfortunately, we disappointed some people today by not having this clearly stated sooner so we want to make sure that everyone understands for the rest of this week at least. Things are in a bit of disarray right now and we are working as fast as we can to get everything in place. Thanks so much for understanding! Please accept our apologies Ashley and her mother...we hope you will be able to make it out again sometime soon.
