Seeing what happens when a knit store gets a blog

I have a knitting shop in Concord, NC. I've been here a year, bringing yarn to the masses. We have regular Knit Nights and there are plans for parties and classes. Stop by if you are in the area, or visit the website at and have a look around!

FIRE! (inspection)

Today we had the fire inspection. I was rather nervous, having never been around for one before. I expected him to slam a fist through the wall, bring out a handful of wires and tell me how bad things were.

Half an hour later we were shaking hands as he left, with him utterly certain I could get done with the things that needed fixing in the next few hours. And if I had gone to the hardware store and bought a different lock-and-doorknob, I would have been. I did the tidying up he wanted, so that should be fine. Oh, and have the extinguisher serviced.

On the agenda for tomorrow: doorknob. Along with a few other a price gun. All I want is a little price gun that is hand-powered. I do not need one that plugs in. I am capable of squeezing, but can't find one like that. I know they make them. I used to use one. It is my quest now.

I have just found the Yahoo group called Knitswap. This should be fun. What a cool idea.

Wow, I need to update more

On the agenda for today: put stuff up on Ebay. I have a lot of little random pieces of stock that I don't know what to do with. I figure Ebay is a good way to let them bring joy to the world. Or the person that wins the auction, anyway.

Also, work on colors of yarn for site. There are a vast number left to do. And put hooks in the cross stitch room so I can hang kits. And find a home for that stack of books.

I think that's a good way to spend the day. Yesterday I got very little done and I feel terribly guilty about it. I just was not motivated. Today I am motivated by yesterday's sluggishness. Yay, getting things done.

Day two with a blog

I have spent today going through inventory and cleaning the store. Good times, good times. I should get back to doing that.

First post

Is anyone out there? I have not done this before....just testing the waters to see if this is something we will enjoy doing.

Now what happens when I post this?
