Monday Mailout 29.09.11

Another busy weekend in store with plenty of our regulars settling in on the couches, escaping the horrible windy, rainy day on Saturday. It was such a perfect day for a hot coffee, sweet treat and knitting.

Megan’s Carrot Cupcakes were a huge hit and didn’t last the day on Saturday!

There were also lots of new faces popping in for a quick yarn fix and to check out our new yarns.

Today has been a typical Monday with lots of wrapping and packing of lovely online orders from the weekend.

Our WOOLganics Head, Hands & Heart is still proving to be popular even with Spring just around the corner. Some beautiful Wisteria is making its way off down south.

Other popular online products this weekend – Jo Sharp Knit books and our Clover Soft Touch crochet hooks.

The launch of our new Cascade Ultra Pima in our Friday newsletter saw people popping into the store just before closing time Friday and online orders flowing through all weekend.

Popular colours have been Natural, Magenta, Buttercup, Primrose, Turquoise, Ice, Sprout, Deep Coral and Armada.

I cast on with some Ultra Pima over the weekend and am delighted with how soft and silky it is!

Along with processing our weekend online orders today we have had fun helping select colours of Cascade 220 Worsted for several blankets and met some visitors from New Zealand that were excited to find us. They left with shade cards of our Gaywool Dyes and plans for dyeing fleece for spinning.

Some Jo Sharp DK Tweed and Biggan DK Merino was put together to become a tea cosy or two and a few balls of cotton fleece picked up to continue a blanket on the go.

In between helping our customers and mailing off yummy packages we have started to receive our weekly deliveries…lots of processing, bar-coding and photographing ahead this week!
