we met

today to talk over our yarn shop idea, which has become a yarn cooperative, and I think we are committing to renting space in an old factory building that now houses an art gallery, yoga/massage studio, local arts council offices, and some artists' studios. I'm feeling that this is a firm step in a direction; we've pulled back on some of the more grandiose plans, and this is good. The smaller the steps, at this point, the more firm our footing will be later; at least that's the way I'm feeling. I'm very interested to see how things shake out over the summer.

We are also gearing up to go back to the library knit-in and again stay overnight in a great hotel next week. From this vantage point, all looks positive.

It all sounds very impressive. I'm with you-start simply then enlarge if it is feasable. I wish it were going to be near me as I would sure show up.

Are you saying that you plan to open a yarn shop? Oh, that used to be my dream for years :-) Good luck.

Yarn shop .... library knit-in... oh what fun, I wish I lived closer to you! I like to knit, I'm not very good at it, but I'm improving. We learnt to knit at elementary school.... that was many many years ago. Do kids learn to knit any more?

Another knitter! HA. There's a whole world of you out there, I know. :) I love it. Maybe one day I'll become one myself, just for the halibut.
