I've enjoyed taking photos of the shop recently and sharing them on the SSYC Facebook page. If you don't see that feed, simply click this link and "Like" our page to see new pictures and updates in your Facebook feed. Or simply visit the page every once in awhile to see what I may have post.
Here's shop-manager-Heather, unpacking a huge amount of yarn earlier this week.
This is Cascade Heritage in every single weight and color (including their Heritage Silk, a great option for dressier socks), a new addition to the shop. I'm really pleased to be adding this to our offerings. Nearly 200 different new weights/colors, starting as low as $11 per 100g skein. Seriously, $11. Cascade Yarns recently lowered the price on this popular yarn, so I thought it was the perfect time to offer it. Expect to see this on the website in a week.
This is the entire front part of the store, as seen from the front door. Five tons of sock yarn spread over 3500 square feet. The door at the back leads to the two-story area where we create Poste Yarn. Click on the picture to get a better view.
Did any of you get snow dropped on your area this week? We did, but since our walls are covered with yarn, we came back to a warm and inviting store. It kept us from packing up and getting out the St. Patty's Day kits as quickly as we wanted to, as we stayed in our homes on Wednesday. But as of yesterday they are all on their way to their new homes. If you missed out on this kit, there may be a few leftover and I'll post about that in the next e-newsletter. Or e-mail email@example.com if you are hoping for possible waitlist.
I hope you have a great weekend! This weekend, Joe and I will be celebrating a big anniversary. Henry now has A TOOTH and is CRAWLING, so nothing is safe in our house- including my yarn. I'm going to have to do some sort of baby proofing this weekend. Five-year-old James often gets this look of alarm, realizing that his Legos are no longer safe. I'll also be spending some time finalizing the first ever Poste Yarn club, and I hope to share the secrets with you next week.
