I wish all of you a happy and prosperous New Year. Where has 2009 gone??
Today, is our last knit group of the year. The group has started their second sock in the KAL. It is a toe-up sock using the Magic Cast On. We start a new sock every two months. Next sock pattern will be available end of February. It’s not too late to join the KAL. Even if you can’t join us for our weekly meetings, knit along with us. Just contact me at The Fiber Closet or leave a comment or request on this blog.
2009 has been an exciting year for both The Fiber Closet and myself.
- While a lot of retailers have been suffering, the Fiber Closet’s sales increased by almost 40%. Thank you to all our customers. You all have become great friends.
- I became a new bride and have a wonderful new husband.
- The Fiber Closet participated in three successful Indiana fiber events and we plan to attend at least four in 2010. Our long range goal is to participate in one event a month March through October. We are on the waiting list for several events. If you know of any fiber events, please let us know.
We definitely will have our other weaving/craft room open in 2010. My husband, Mike, will also be setting up shop in part of the room. He is a well-know collector/seller of sports cards plaques and related supplies. He buys and sells sports cards and collections.
I am looking for new ideas for classes. Please leave comments and suggestions on this blog.
Have a great New Year’s eve. Love you all.
