Here’s what’s new this year…
As you know, I opened my doors as the new owner of Knit This, Purl That! January 1st, of 2012. The shop already existed as a cute little knit shop, full of yarn, books and accessories. It took me three years to get to know all of the ins and outs of owning a knitshop and trying to make it the best knit shop it can be.
I love my shop and my friends who frequent it, but I felt like there was something missing. Towards the end of 2014, I came to realize the shop did not really feel like it was mine: not my ideas, not all my choice in yarn , books, patterns and not my design. I needed a major change. So after talking it over with Jim, my husband and co-owner, we decided to renovate the shop.
On December 28th , 2014, we closed for renovation. My staff and I pulled everything out of the shop: yarn, books, needles, everything! After paint, new lighting, and new flooring, we started to refill our shop… but this time, we thought about everything going back into the shop. We phased out product that already served its purpose and welcomed in new yarn, books and accessories that reflected the newness of the shop, and added to the freshness I’ve always wanted.
Welcome to my new shop! If you haven’t been here in awhile, please stop on in. I hope it makes you feel as happy as it makes me feel every day.
