Specifically I am thinking about 3 things--selling yarn wholesale, stocking my Strange Folk booth and the next sock club. Shall we take them in order? Lets! (I mentioned the insomnia, right?)
2. Strong Arm Skinny (the 2-ply) and Strong Arm Sock (the 3-ply) have been a popular choices for my shops lately. I don't want to undercut my local retailers (Ewe Knits and Knitorious), so I've decided that I will not be bringing any Strong Arm or Strong Arm Skinny hanks with me to Strange Folk or Tower Grove this year. I will still bring with me to Strange Folk the SA sock flats, Bling sock yarn and possibly another yet-unpicked sock base, along with my regular assortment of yarns and fibers. Also? Hand pulled combed top. Expensive, but worth it. See? I expect to see you out in force, Spinners.
3. August has gotten away from me and I realized this afternoon that if I want to be able to get the sock club started on time in October that I need to open registration like now. I will post all the details tomorrow, but for now the sock club registration will open on Tuesday and will run until the spots run out. Returning club members, I will email you separately. It will be $64 (+ shipping) for the yarn-only option. The club runs from October - December and will feature Strong Arm, Strong Arm Skinny and either Bling or the mystery 4th option. Haven't decided yet. As always, please let me know if you want in to the club but need to make alternate payment arrangements.
I'm debating on letting you choose the option to get swag with your yarn for an extra $20. I'm also still torn on a theme. Thoughts?
