We are going to start being super crowded in
the shop and a bit messy by the end of this week. We are moving some yarn
displays around to make room to move the knitting needles and crochet hooks to
their new homes.
In the new space, the walls have been painted
and the flooring is being installed next week.
At that point, the contractor will be cutting
a hole in the wall between the 2 spaces, and moving some of the worsted weight,
most of the DK,
and sport and some of the fingering weight
yarns into the new space, where they will be difficult to access for a few days
until the wall is completely removed and the support beam for the ceiling
installed. Plastic sheeting will be hung to contain the mess and protect the
yarns; we are not planning at this point to close the shop at all.
More details and another update will be in
next week's newsletter.
