.....very well. Just a little bit slower than usual.
Thank you very much for the busy week back! It's going quite well- Henry's coming to work with me for now so that I can keep him fed (apparently that's something that is required for a baby- who knew?), which is nice to a point, but also makes me even more distracted than I already am. I think the combination of not being in the store for 6 weeks with being on my feet for 8 hours and also my mind not quite being out of it's pregnancy and baby fog- well, things went a bit slowly yesterday. I'm just not up to speed. But I've also hired someone new to help with the box packing and store upkeep that I can't physically do while caring for a wee one, so that's a definite plus. So what was a couple years ago just me is now me and four others, helping put together your orders, creating your yarn, and generally loving that we get to be your personal shoppers and dyers all day long. Heather, Mary, Angela, Rachael and I really appreciate you and your passion for knitting! Maybe I'll coerce them into taking a picture sometime soon (though you can also see a few pictures in the photo album on the Facebook page).
I'd say that the highlight of the week so far is seeing what many of you will be receiving in the mail shortly. We like to live vicariously through you- imagining how you display your yarn, wondering what you are knitting with the lovely skeins of Skein Sock and BFL that many of you seem to be getting in large shawl quantities. It's like many of you are our knitting friends- like, "Oh, look what Laura chose today!" Or, "wow, Martha is going to love opening this box." I look forward to a whole week of this! Thank you for making my first week back such a good time.
