Opening Day: April 11

Just a quick note with a couple of photos from continues:

The sign is done! Isn't it gorgeous? A smaller version will be by the door near the parking lot.

If your yarn escapes like mine are two solutions to keep it under control...hand thrown knitting bowls and handmade wooden yarn caddies. Either -- or both! -- are good choices.

Just one angle of the room dedicated to fingering weight yarn. This is just one angle of the space. Some yarn is backordered but is scheduled to arrive this week! Also lots of knitting and crochet patterns.

See  you soon with more photos....

Yarn Comes Out from Hiding

This is the weekend...the yarn starts to be put out, models get displayed and needles and accessories will be put into their designated spaces in Main Street Yarn. Opening day is just around the corner -- April 11. Our hours will be Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays noon to 6 p.m. The shop address is 121 E. Main Street, Rebersburg, PA. The shop phone will be installed next Friday. Once I'm sure of the phone number I will add it to this post.

Main Street Yarn will have a website, Ravelry page and Facebook page. There also will be a monthly newsletter emailed to all who are interested.

Here are just a couple of photos from today to peek your interest. Hope to see you soon! Kim

"The Singles Bar" of fingering weight yarn is is just ripe for all sorts of projects -- from socks to shawls to hats and more!

The JoJoland Yarn Wall! A fabulous twist of color in worsted weight. Look at that gorgeous shawl! Yum.

A closeup of the gorgeous shop model knitted by Libby Beiler. Just think of the lovely items you can knit or crochet from Jojoland.

They Match!

This is a quick post to show you my lovely yarn bowl and the sock yarn I currently have on the double pointed needles. I chuckled at the coincidence of the nearly matching colors of the yarn bowl and the yarn. Aren't they lovely? I'm going to the shop tomorrow to dust and clean  the small room and the middle room. Hopefully I can actually get some yarn and other items in place. If so, I will take photos and update tomorrow night.

Please if you read my blog posts leave me a note, at least occasionally. I took off the blocks so leaving a message should be quick and easy. If there are still issues, please let me know. Thanks!
