I have so many emotions going on inside me right now. After nearly 14 years of working at Katja's Quilt Shoppe, I am resigning. This is a decision that didn't come easily. Working there has been a lot of fun and a great challenge. Katja has been so amazing to work for and I will truly miss her and my co-workers. Having said that, I'm not going far.
In my last post I mentioned a project that was both exciting and terrifying. Just a few doors down from Katja's, a retail space has become available and I have leased it.
I'm opening a yarn shop ! Knit2 will open it's doors early spring and I am so excited !
The knitters in town, me included, travel quite a distance to buy yarns we can't get here. So many people have expressed their wishes for a yarn shop, so I thought "why not?"
Things are coming together and I'm officially in freak out mode. To settle my nerves, I've been knitting of course. I want to open with samples to inspire : )

Now comes the fun part of designing the space. Oh the possibilities ! I'm so looking forward to showing you before and after photos : ) Squeeeeeeel
This huge project will be a window display. I want to make sure people know it's a yarn shop : )
Thanks for reading today.
If you are local, do you have a favourite yarn? Is there a particular one you think I should know about? Let me know in the comments or e-mail me the info.
Also, I hope you will pop in and say hello !
