While we had all of the yarn out of the back room, my husband was busy building floor to ceiling shelves. They are wonderful and my back room will look so good now. I might even be able to find what I need when I need it now.
I will be happy to get this job finished.
I spent most of my time yesterday with Brenda and Stella helping count sock yarn. We have a lot of sock yarn. Really a lot. I also have 46 KG of Kauni. I know that thanks to Shannon.
Hopefully I will get this all done in time to reopen on Wed, Jan 2 if not please excuse the mess...

First we put the Meika to work baking. She is making a pie for Grandpa here. Then we got the place all ready for Christmas. The Kauni stocking was filled with loot for Meika.
Christmas morning everyone got lots of presents and the kids all had fun. Then amongst the Christmas mess Meika painted a picture for me.
Mom made Megan a cute sweater for Christmas. It was the one on the cover of Cast on Magazine for fall. She loved it so mom knit it for her with Eco knits cotton. She loves it and it looks great on her.
I gave mom a Kauni felted hat and a 1/4 finished cashmere scarf. She loved both. The scarf will be done soon.
My son got his hat still on the needles too but I finished it during the day. Meika's sweater also got finished during the day and she wore it home on Boxing day.

Yesterday's sale went great. I heard from lots of internet people - fun to talk to customer's from far away on the phone. The in store sale went great too and the sock yarn supply is somewhat depleted. I think a lot of people are getting socks this Christmas.
The store looks very Christmasy. Mom and Dad came over for the evening and we ate Pizza and drank tea. It was lovely.
I guess I have time to knit today. I am knitting about 5 projects. 3 socks, 1 lace scarf, 1 top down sweater for Meika knit with my handspun yarn. What shall I work on first...... off to knit
