Weekend and knitting store brain dump

Day 6: I am grateful for my aunt and her ability to see the gray in life.

Day 7: I am grateful for friends who invite me to lunch and a visit.

Day 8: I am grateful for nurses who offer good care to patients in need.

I spent Sunday and Monday on a quick trip to the town where my aunt lives to help her load up some more things from her home, pick up mail and stuff. I managed to get in a little more antique store shopping (found a very cool dress from the 60's that I want to copy a pattern from), some vintage buttons, antique hangers and talked to my aunt about selling me some of her shelves/display pieces to put in my store (when we finally get moved in). With an end in sight I have started thinking about what we will do furniture-wise, what I will call the shop..how I will decorate the shop...some possible classes...etc.

I will tell you more as my ideas solidify but it will definitely be a mixture of antique and new knitting and spinning materials. There will be a selection of UK goods (and hopefully some direct from the spinner and dye-er UK yarns). I also hope to find some antique spinning wheels.

I am thinking of offering several kids learn to knit classes, using knitting and crocheting to embellish clothing and home-goods. etc. Grace is excited and has been drawing possible logo's for me. I have a name figured out but can't tell you all until I have gotten my domain name sorted. There will be a webpage and facebook links so watch out :)

How fun! I would love to learn to knit.

PS: to answer your question on getting up early. I don't. I sometimes schedule my posts to publish at 3AM PST.
