Internet Woes

Wow...........Friday again. How does that keep happening? Unfortunately, we STILL don't have internet access at our new apartment in Atlanta - well, unless you count an internet page taking about 20 minutes to load as internet service. I certainly don't. It was supposed to be all fixed up last Tuesday but apparently we got a crap modem sent to us so they had to send us a new one and yadda, yadda, yadda.......we still have no service. This makes being an internet college instructor rather difficult.

HOPEFULLY, we can get it all set up next Tuesday or Wednesday. The new job is going good. I had my first day on the floor with students on Wednesday. They did a good job, despite most of them being scared of children, and we had a good day. I have a really good group! I think this was my prize for them having to get me up and running so insanely fast. I didn't have any of them run screaming from the building so that was a pretty good sign that I did alright. Once I got back in the grove it all started to come back.

The apartment is coming along nicely - I'll have to get some pictures of it the next time we are there. It is always good to get back home to our chickens though. When we came home yesterday we had 21 eggs out in the coop!!!!! Eggs anyone?

We have made a few decisions about Knit Witch and have a couple of announcements.

- We ARE still going to SAFF, even though it will be a bit more abbreviated then originally planned. We are sharing a booth with the wonderfully talented Fleury Sheep and Wool so we are really excited about that! I just simply have not had time to dye enough stuff to fill up a booth so sharing seemed like a great alternative. We will have some bowls and some yarn but if Knit Witch products are on your list of "must haves" be sure to make us one of the first stops on your list. AND if you need a fleece processed, Jen and Jared will be taking fleeces for you!!!

- We are about to pull all of our yarn off the website and go to wholesale only status. I know, I know, but with everything else going on, we just can't keep up with everything. The bowls will still be for sale on the website but our yarn will primarily be being sold through Only Ewe and Cotton Too and maybe some clubs. That is still to be determined. Things will calm down pretty soon and then we can really see where we stand and what we can realistically accomplish. So, I'm telling you this because if you see something you like on the website - NOW would be the time to get it. Hopefully I still have most of what is on the site as I have not updated it in a few weeks but if I don't I will let you know. We will probably pull all of the yarn off of the website sometime next week.

Well, I think that is it for now. I actually have been doing a little knitting and am about halfway through the front of the Rugby Sweater from Knit Simple. I'll get some pictures for you before we head back to the big city. I think Petey and Nessie really like being apartment pets! They are so funny together - they love each other! I need to get some pictures of that too!!!

Well then, I guess I'm going to have to lean on Remi a bit to place another order with you. Will you at least leave up the colors for shop owners to view so they know what to order?

Yay! I'm so glad you are coming! And sharing with jen and Jared is perfect, cause I need to bring them some fleeces that I'm never going to get to:)

Welcome back to the ATL! Although I must say I am sad to see you are having to close down your yarn sales online, I do know Only Ewe and Cotton Too (light years from where I live - a couple of miles from your new apt.) and will be going there for ShopHop next weekend. I really enjoyed visiting your booth at Stitches South this year. Will you continue to go to the shows?

Best wishes in your new job!
