Shop Expansion Update!
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.
