Simply Socks Yarn Company's web store will be closed from August 2 through August 11. If you're reading this, that means that you happened to visit our website during the one week a year I "close" the online shop to be with family before school starts (yeah, you got me, last year I took 6 weeks, but that was special... it takes time to grow a family).
What does this mean to you? If you place an order on the website August 2-11, I anticipate shipping to resume on the 12th. If you e-mail or call, those messages will also be returned once we "reopen."
Want to visit the shop in person during this time? Please do! Heather, Rachael and Angela will be here to help you during our regular once-a-week shopping hours. Those are Saturday, August 3 from 10-4 and Tuesday August 6 from 10-4. They can show you all the new yarn that has arrived (Madelinetosh's new colors!), and tease you about what's to come... a summer kit, anyone?! They will also be busy packing dyeing/tagging/shipping all those Poste Patina Test Kitchen orders that you placed last week.
Thank you for your patience as I take some time to be with family. Henry and James are growing up so quickly and am going to savor every hour of this time off with them. And Joe too- I shouldn't forget about my husband!

When I return from break, I have some great things to share. There's new yarn from Madelinetosh and Lorna's Laces, and even a summer kit. I have to keep my mind off the fact that my baby is starting kindergarten afterall. And we will be releasing the whole line of Patina in late August, so if you missed out on the Test Kitchen offer, you'll be able to snag skeins of this new line then. Have a great week!
