The Waiting Game

As you probably know, I like to be organised. I like routine and structure. So I tend to have quite a disciplined working week. Monday is post day. Tuesday I sort the yarn out for the upcoming update, name and list it. Wednesday is photographs and getting the preview ready. Then the rest of the week is time off, apart from emails, blogging, etc.

But sometimes, you have to be a little more flexible. Like this week. We had some new yarn come in at the end of last week, and as soon as I saw it, I knew I had to get some on this week’s update. So Tony dyed on Monday, and the yarn is currently drying, ready for me to list and photograph tomorrow and Friday. So a very late preview this week, but I know you’ll agree that it was worth it.

The new yarns are both dk weight, Martha DK and Sylvia DK, and I could not be happier with them. I know we’ve had a bit of a gap in our range when it comes to dk, which is silly, because dk is so versatile, and suitable for all year round knitting. So these two yarns, added to Elinor DK and Helena DK, will fill that gap. I am especially in love with the Sylvia DK. I might have to swipe some of that for myself.

Since I can’t work today, I’m taking a day off to knit, bake bread, and potter around in the house. The weather is dreadful, although not as bad as it is in some areas of the UK (I hope all my Scottish customers are coping ok!). So I’m just going to nest today. Whatever you are doing, have a good one!

  1. Sounds a lovely day to nest. I can smell the bread…..
    Weather in the SE quite nice so I’ll try to get out with younger offspring & pretend that Spring has really sprung – I’ll find a sunny flower to photo for you!
