The Cat is Away!

cat away

Hello there,

Did you have a good week, the weather was great wasn’t it, a taste of things to come and a little break from the rain.  Now we need to hunker down again for more rain, yes?

Beginning today I won’t be in the shop for a couple of weeks.  I will be out herding some more sheep, and hopefully knitting up a storm.  I will also be getting ready for the wine and wool extravaganza.  In case you don’t remember, we are pairing with the Mauritson Winery to bring wine and wool together at their gorgeous facility in Healdsburg.  Always thinking of new ways for us all to have a good time doing what we love to do. I think it will be lots of fun and hope you can come out and join us.  There is also talk of there being jambalaya too.  How lucky are we to live in this wonderful county that we have the good fortune to call home.

Well while I am away from the shop I need you to keep an eye on Lesley for me.  I never know what she might get up to while I am away.  She will of course be taking great care of you all, with some help from Karen and Linda, but I have a feeling she has something up her sleeve?

I am now handing you over to her, you will be in good hands and I will cross my fingers as I knit. I bet you would like to see that eh?  Have a great couple of weeks and I will see you back in the shop on the 27th, Have fun I will miss you.



Whew!  I thought she would never leave.  🙂 Remember how Trudy told you a couple weeks ago that we’ve been ordering lots of yarn?  Well it is due to arrive any day now and there is absolutely no room!  So while the cat is away the mouse is going to play!  I’m spending today finding goodies to add to the clearance section and hanging sale signs around the store.  That’s right, I’m having a sale.  I have a list below but you know me I’m always finding new things to add to the pile so you’ll just have to stop by and check it out!  I’d love to make lots of room because then we can get in even more great new stuff!
