kniterary..2 weeks and counting...

This is the logo of my newly acquired store! I really like it.




My first day at the store. I am trying to figure out how to work the cash register. I pretty much have it figured out by now but I still make the occasional mistake! See all the knitting needles behind me? The shelves you can see in the front are some of my sock yarn.



I have now changed around some of the shelves but the sweater I still have up on display. Jim had to let me have his sweater to show off!

The sheep and the chicken! The chicken in the Muskoka chair now guards my business cards on the front desk.




Here I am still trying to figure out the cash register....

So I have been in the store for 2 weeks now. I am loving it! People are starting to get to know me and that the store is open. I have at least one person everyday who is just discovering the store.

A few orders have been placed. Coming soon...a refill of needle stock, some summer yarns and lots of patterns!

Classes are slowly getting started but many seem interested. Next month I will be having a felted Yoga bag day!

Thursday night Sit N' Knit is continuing so for those in the area come and join us!

I have been doing alot of knitting (pictures soon). A bag with Cabin Fever cotton/acrylic blend, a pair of socks with Tofutsies yarn and a small lace scarf with Svale.

My favorite part of being in the store is being able to help people choose yarn and progress through their projects. My second favorite part is the amount of knitting I actually have time to do!

More pictures soon!

Again, congrats. I love the new logo!
You'll get the hang of everything soon. I'm jealous of a job with knitting time.
