Want to see how much yarn I can fit in 300 Sq. ft.

I haven't shown any pictures of the store lately so I thought I would. I think the store is a marvel in how to get a lot of yarn in a small space and still have room to walk. The first picture is the outside of the store. I have started putting yarn outside on nice days.

Here is the sock yarn wall. The sale sign was for the August sale of Opal Saphir.

More yarn shelves and hooks and baskets and you can just see the knitting couch.

This is the needles wall plus much more yarn. This yarn section is the novelty yarn and is a bit chaotic also you can see some of the Malibrigo hanging nice and close to the checkout desk so I can pet it often.

This is the Noro and Sweatermaker section. Aren't those colours amazing. I am working very hard at getting all of the sweatermaker available on the internet this month.

And of course the most important part of the store, customers. Here is Brenda with her newly finished Diamond Fantasy shawl knit with lace weight Island Hues yarn. Her shawl is lovely and she plans to block it and show pictures on her blog so go have a look. We had a nice day on Saturday at the store. We sat outside and knit when the store wasn't too busy. It was fun to knit and chat with Brenda. She showed me magic loop sock knitting. It actally looks easy.

Ooh can I come and live at your house and work in the wool shop. Looks like you have the best job ever, but I think Quadra Island is a little bit far away from Australia. Love all of your yarns too, they look beautiful.
