It’s getting late but it was my intention to post this morning and I am determined to not let this all go another day. Paula is out sick, so I got to play at being Paula today. Actually I did on Monday too. Just between you and me I think this will be true for the rest of the week, so bear with us. I talked with her this evening and she sounded awful. Poor baby!! Let’s all send her some get well vibes. It sucks to be sick.
It seems to me that there has been a lot more sick this year. Every time I turn around there’s another bug or two making the rounds. I wonder… maybe it’s the cold. Who knows? What I do know is that when you are a small business having even one person out sick is a stress and usually it does not stop there, it makes the rounds. We’ve gotten to the point this year that if one of us so much as sneezes we break out all of our remedies and wipe the place down. It’s quite a sight really. Before I sat at Paula’s desk to work this morning I asked Denise where the disinfectant was and she said not to worry they already wiped it down. I love practical women!
So my dear Paula take care of yourself, rest and get better. We miss you tons. I will try my best do do your job as competently and graciously as you do! ( I can hear you laughing.)
Okay now for our latest news!
Madrona is right around the corner and even though we are not going to have a Blue Moon booth, we are very pleased to announce that one of our new LYS’s, The Fiber Gallery, is going to have a nice selection of our yarns, including a ton of Socks that Rock in some hot new spring colorways!! We hope you will stop by and welcome the Fiber Gallery to the Blue Moon LYS family!! I hope everyone has a grand time. Have a little extra fun for me I will miss seeing all the wonderful knitters that I love.
Speaking of new additions to our LYS team, I have a few more to mention Please welcome in Vancouver B. C. Maiwa a store full of all kinds of wonder. Maiwa is our first not just yarn store. Do check out their website and see all the treasure and beauty they offer, especially the Symposium they put on every year that is overflowing with talented artisans from all over the planet.
Last, but most certainly not least is (Are you ready because it’s pretty exciting?) our very first European LYS, L’OisiveThé, Salon de Thé in Paris. We have spread our wings, flown to Paris and straight into one of the loveliest yarn stores on the planet. Thank you Kate for calling this summer and gently suggesting (telling) me I had to put my yarn here. I’m delighted and hope Aimee is too! Look for L’OisiveThé and Socks that Rock at stand B8.3 at L’Aiguille en Fête 2014 this next week.
We will be adding LYS’s more and more so if you have a local yarn store you’d like to see our yarn in please do drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
I spent the weekend in the barn cooking up all sorts of new colorways and design ideas! I can’t wait to show you! I was hoping to so do this week but it might have to wait til Paula is back next week. I’ll post a picture of the whole lot tomorrow!
Ok I am going to give this a look over for typos. I’m as good at typos as I am at color!
