La,La,La,La,La. So I'm completely exhausted, but I'm not. Does that make any sense at all? I don't feel so tired but my body just quits. It's totally refusing to cooperate with the mind. I so hate when that happens.
Things are going splendidly well. Much better than I had anticipated considering I haven't advertised yet. Oh but that's a coming. I'm suprised how many knitters are right here in town. They just crawled right out of the woodwork they did. I knew they would . And there are more of them too. Some who want to turn into knitters. And spinners. What an interest there is in spinning. One wheel has already departed from my clutches. How can that happen in a week? I don't really think I even care how it happened but I'm very glad it did. I love to see the enthusiasm of a new spinner. I can so relate to that love of the wheel the first time it you spin and tho see that in someone else is very cool. This is what makes me want a shop. This is what I love! Sharing it with others is just fabulous. I'm so thankful to everyone who has been helping me during this whole know who you are. I'm also very hopeful for what lies ahead. I don't know about you, but I'm thinking the skies the limit here.

The Ball and Skein is officially open for business........I will be open Tuesday thru Saturday. The hours as of now are going to be 10-5 until further notice. I'm having my Grand Opening in six weeks and I will be extending my hours on certain days. I'm postponing the Grand Opening due to the fact that there are many things left to do and I'm a one man band here. I appreciate your patience. I would love to stay late this Tuesday night to knit if anyone is interested in coming. Give me a call at the shop!

A name, oh has a name. It's going to be called the "Ball and Skein" get it???? Old jail.
Hours are not set in stone yet either. They will be in the next few days. I just have to think for a minute before I publish it. As I mentioned, there are still plenty of things I need to do, boxes are arriving just about daily it seems, and there are only 24 hours in a day and one of me. Some things just get pushed aside. I will post the hours soon. I will be there this coming Saturday from 3:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. for the "Cruise In".

's like time to let the cat out of the bag, already. I'm opening a shop. A knitting and spinning shop. A really great one that has all things yummy. Naturally. My pics as the best of the best all crammed into one little historical jail cell. I'll be hosting a preview this Saturday evening if anyone would like to attend.....Germantown hosts it's "Cruise In" for old cars this weekend. Live entertainment and all. Certainly not to be missed. I think they might even bring in some greasy hot dog, fair wagon type deal. Come see what I'm offering up....from raw show fleeces to the most delectable yarns. I've got some goodies! More on the way!

The shop address is: 11 North Cherry St.

Germantown, Oh.

The eye candy in the bag is one of many of the bags of Fleece artist rovings and yarns waiting to be put out. The yarn on the shelf in Cascade 220. We must have the staple. Stay tuned for what else is coming..........

I really did live through Maryland.....I can't believe I had money for gas on the way home, but I did. It was everything I had hoped for. Great fun! I cashed in on the Brooks Farms Yarns like I was instructed to. AHHHH what yarns they have. Yummy! I got a raw Cormo fleece that was seriously to die for. I bought some sock yarn. I bought a picture by Joan Arnold. Her work is amazing. I bought a Wooly Winder. I bought books....I found Alice Starmore's celtic collection. Very happy about that. I had a great time. Got lots of great stuff. I can't wait to go back next year. Hubby and I are going to Rhinebeck this year. So now I have that to look forward to : ). Oh what fun it is!
So it's been like a month since i've posted. Oh what a busy one I have been. Thirty days in the hole......or something like that. Pun intended.
I will come forth with more details very soon.
It's not that I don't want to divulge all the delightful scoop.
I just don't have the strength.
I have been working in my gardens like a mad woman.
I'm OCD like that. I totally obsess on things.
And of course act compulsively.
I'm still talking about the gardens here.....
Anyhow. They are in much better shape. Now to hire a man with a big weedeater. I have lots of yard. No weed eater for the job. And Tot to contend with. I can see that happening. Sure.
We'll see what Mr. Weedeater man offers up. I'm a tightwad these days. I may have to make a trip to the weedeater store and strap on some goggles. Look out, this could be dangerous. I have been known to be very, very dangerous with lawn related equipment. We'll see.
Besides that I know nothing.
