The more things change....?

I remember, when I was younger, thriving on change. Moving to a new place? Great! Trying new stuff? Awesome! Looking back, though, I realize that those were changes that were well-defined, with set times and proscribed boundaries. 

I'm trying to look at opening the store like that. It's working... a bit. Right now, with my proposed opening day looming ever closer, it's overwhelming. Every issue I deal with today has trailers that snake into tomorrow.

And the end isn't really the end; it's opening day.

I'll probably feel better when I get the last five major items accomplished. And I do have more than a week to do it all. 

Deep breath.

It'll be fine.

I got this!

Key Cap Sadness

So, want to make the spare store key instantly recognizable to whoever has to bring it to me. Found this: 


Perfect!! And sold out. 

So, I found this:


Possible. But not my favorite.  Then found this:


OMG! Even more perfect!!!

...and also sold out. Sigh.

I'll just knit one myself.

And more tomorrow

Moved 3 Van-loads of furniture and yarn (mostly yarn) to the store today.

Very little of the yarn will be for sale; I just want it out of my garage (where I can't get to it) so I can go through it. 


It's a lot of yarn.

It's empty still, and probably opening in January, but it's mine!!

Advent Calendar Scarf 2013 - Day 10

This is a tough one to photograph:


It's really interesting; it would make a cool summer coverup or market bag. I need to try it in cotton.
