Hookers Friday

Don't forget our monthly Hook In will go on as usual this Friday. I have lots of air conditioning to go around so don't be afraid of the weather report. lol
For those of us who work in air conditioned stores and live in air conditioned homes I think the heat wave is even worse. I run out of the store and jump into the very hot van and whiz home and run into the refridgerated house. It was delightful to open the windows and doors and let the fresh air in last night. THE HYDRO WAS OFF!!!!! LOL
Good thing it wasn't earlier in the week or it could have been ugly. The night was beautiful. We sat on our front step with our candles and fire pot and lived it up until the mosquitoes drove me inside. My trust halogen flashlight allowed me to read my book and I was quite happy.
Hope all of you are enjoying your summer and hope to see you in the shop soon.

New Arrivals

While I was away I noticed several new things have arrived in the shop and now is the time to stop in and see them. We do have air so if you can make it from the house to the car to the shop, I figure you shouldn't even break a sweat lol. It is brutal out there so those of you who find it to much , all kidding aside please wait for the weather to cool off a bit.
I believe I have already mentioned the "Dyeing for Colour" and Pats beautiful fibres. For spinners, knitters and felters you have to see it to believe it. I am going to try and post a picture of the wall of goods for you to enjoy online until it cools off.

We're having a heat wave ,,,,,,,,,,,

Wow! I know you've heard it a thousand times but is it ever hot out there today. Thank heavens for the pool that gives us a refreshing break and the central air but you still have difficulty working very much even with the air on.
For those of you who are looking for a respite from the heat, Andjareenas Place has air conditioning and we look forward to seeing you. Knitters, enjoy yourself on Tuesday afternoon but I think I will still be in the Muskokas helping Travis set up his internet and cable. Sharon and Cecile will be in charge and have strict orders to look after you. lol
For the sock makers I have put on the balance of the Mega Boot sock yarn. Regular price is $17.99 per ball and I am clearing it for $5.00 a ball. I need more shelf space as the fall yarns start to roll in. Frill Seeker is back in stock and the Frill Seeker lite with metallics. Metal is in this fall and you will need sun glasses when entering the yarn room.
I will be carrying more fibre from Pat Leclair from Dyeing for Colour and Sharon will be setting that up this week. I am going to try and have a "Spin In" once a month and will post it here when everything is set up.
There is also some Cantata Cotton for those of you who knit dish cloths. It is on sale for $1.99 per ball. It's a little to nice for dish cloths and makes lovely sweaters but for some reason I have never been able to sell cotton yarn in Trenton. Can't figure it out so I am making room for some great yarns that are arriving this week.
Fall and Christmas fabrics continue to roll in and I'm also waiting on a large notion order that will be full of new and interesting items.
See you all when I get back
