Getting There

Friday, September 18th, 2009

I had the best day yesterday!  I met a few terrific artists and had a great conversation with a local Stillwater resident and potential Darn Knit Anyway employee.   We also put away a bunch of yarns, which was such a treat. 

All week long, people have been walking by the shop…some even poked their heads in the door to have a look around.  I am THRILLED when they do this.  One particular encounter was especially great.  A women from one of the offices upstairs, I’ll call her Pat (cause that’s her name) stopped in.  She saw the shelves finally full of yarn and couldn’t resist coming in to say hello.  We chatted for a few minutes and she said “I don’t want to invade your personal space or anything, and I don’t even know you, but…I am so happy I could hug you right now”.  How great is that?  I have been getting such amazing encouragement from everyone and am constantly reassured that I am moving on the right path.  Very cool.

So…here are a few of the latest photos of the shop.  Sorry for the grainy quality…they were taken from my phone with hands that were shaky from too much coffee! 

If you are wandering Stillwater this weekend…stop and say hi!

Shelves and Boxes

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

Shelves are installed and ready for action.   The fun stuff keeps arriving at our doorstep.  Our shipments of Blue Sky Alpaca, Spud and Chloe, and Rowan showed up yesterday.  UPS delivered another box from Dream in Color today.  We are hoping to see our Cascade order soon and should get our Crystal Palace bamboo needles this week and our Addi Turbos next week.  If you are in Stillwater…peek your head in and say hello!

Just a few more weeks until we open.  We are shooting for the 2nd week of October.  Make sure to sign up for the newsletter and you’ll get first hand info!
