Rain & Dreary Weather

Rainy, dreary weather the past couple of days but several people found their way into the shop in spite of the weather. I’m glad cause I really don’t like sitting there alone all day like I must do sometimes. I’ve just placed an order to replenish the Caron Simply Soft and am contemplating additional orders to other suppliers; what do you want to see, or see more of, in the shop? The sock yarn is getting a bit picked over but there are still a lot of balls of it on the shelves. I do still have some of the original Peaches & Creme cotton left in balls but only one cone of it, a yellow variegated. I have a few cones of the double worsted Peaches & Creme that is good for rugs. Still trying to decide what to do about replenishing the cotton due to its popularity and have ordered a color card for Sugar & Cream which I would have to buy through a “secondary supplier” since I cannot place large enough orders to satisfy the mill it comes from.

Currently on my needles: the second of a pair of slippers for my youngest granddaughter for Christmas and a cowl for another granddaughter. Finished: the mitts to match the cowl, a cowl & mitts set for my daughter in law, a half dozen children’s caps for charity. No current crochet projects; I did crochet a couple of hostess gifts during the Thanksgiving weekend and immediately gave them to my hostess. Need to be thinking about what to make after I finish the cowl; most likely a crochet project but I can’t decide just what I want to do. I do think I’ll knit more of the slippers like the ones currently on needles, a pair for myself and maybe some more gift pairs.
