Yesterday was insane. On top of the PBS film crew showing up to film the store (etc), we got several LARGE shipments in:
- one from Kauni (10 lbs worth of yarn!)
- Circs from Clover
- SP’s and DPNS from Crystal Palace
The solid orange is/ will be ShiBuiKnit’s newest yarn – 75/25 merino/cashmere sock yarn. The multi is ShiBuiKnits Sock in “Autumn”. I’ve been given the task of making a pair of socks with them and wearing them for a couple of weeks, then presenting a small report on the durability of the new yarn compared to the regular Sock.
Oh, the things we do for work.
The film crew showed up at 3:30 and immediately took over the shop:
Please pardon the blurry, camera-phone, shot. In my rush to get around yesterday morning, I forgot to grab my digicam and then to eat something real (adding to the shaky-hands factor). But it all worked out. Opus and I escaped downstairs, where I labeled the new needles that had come in – so they could be sold to the droves of knitters who had shown up.
Eventually, I kidnapped Opus, Terrisa and Kat, just because we were all a bit frazzled. As we left, Opus made me take a picture of the window display Terrisa had been slaving over for the past few days:
The we went and got tea. Well, Opus actually had tea and crumpets. I have to go back there just to try that. And now I have to help mum. After that: Project #3 countdown starts.
