Stock on the Shelves

I have managed to put all the furniture up in the shop and I've started putting yarn on the shelves, and some of the other stock out.  Its all so exciting and I can't stop smiling.  I have more to put out tomorrow and lots of stock coming in the next few days.  We're talking to a very nice man about stocking his spinning equipment.  His stuff is really unusual, and more affordable than traditional wheels.  Watch this space.  The only problem is I keep stopping to look at the yarn and imagine what I'd do with it.  Must get more discipline!

Fyberspates are coming

I'm very excited.  I've put in an order for the shop with Fyberspates, who make the most beautiful wool, with the most gorgeous colours.  I can't wait to see it all.  Its less than a week to go before I get the shop keys and I can start putting up furniture and stocking the shelves.  I'm going to start writing some of my designs as well.  I can sell them as a file send or a download, if I can work out how to do it.  Just got to figure out how to sell stuff through the website, work out the kinks so to speak, and we're off.  I've included some photos of the new yarn to be below.

Getting there slowly

Its weird not to be at work.  I am enjoying the having to get up to knit though.  I'm getting lots of stock ready for the Museum of Army Flying craft fair on 11th October.  The website is getting there slowly.  I've decided to take my own photos as the Artesano CD hasn't arrived.  The ones I've taken so far look much better than the ones I downloaded from the Artesano website.  I think the file sizes are too small.  I've bought most of the furniture for the studio from Ikea.  Now I just have to keep making stock and this time next month the studio will be open.  Very exciting.

Being right of the day: 'I told you it was going to rain' in response to the torrential downpour we had about 4pm.

I've added some of the yarn which is now on the website.
