It’s Sunday afternoon on September 22, 2019. I am sitting here at my desk printing orders while Jeff and my dad Tex are busy in the woodshop working on engraving all of the custom tools that have been ordered so far. My new website has been live since Wednesday and I am absolutely gobsmacked (look it up, it’s a real word) by the response I have had so far. I am so thrilled. I ordered more yarn from Germany last week (even before the website went live), it should arrive late this week so I can fill all of the yarn orders.

Myra Kness gifted me a lacy Christmast tree ornament pattern on Friday and I am thrilled to report that there have been more than 100 downloads of the pattern so far. I am guessing there are going to be some very lacy Christmas trees this year!!!

Here’s the ornament. I did an episode of Socktv on Friday, September 20 that showed this easy lace technique and Myra used that technique to make this ornament. Then she took the time to write the pattern, complete with pictures and emailed it to me to add to the website.

You can download the free pattern from the pattern section of the website. If I can figure out how to link it right here, I will!! This is still all very new to me and I also wanted to thank everyone for their support and patience as I learn how to navigate woocommerce.

Of course a post with the title of thank you would not be complete without acknowledging Rich McGeheran for helping me set this site up. Without his guidance and encouragement, I would still be trying to figure all of this out and pulling my hair out!! He’s the one that’s made it look the way it looks, added the behind the scenes plug ins so I can print invoices, made it where it won’t charge $12.01 for shipping of a free downloadable pattern, and lots more computer stuff that I simply don’t understand!

Again, I just want to humbly thank each and every one of you who are interested in my products and services. This week Jenny Deters and I will round out September by teaching a beginner and advanced sock school. Then next week I will kick off a very busy SOCKtober schedule by teaching in Minneapolis at StevenBe. The rest of the month is booked with private lessons in my craft castle.

Thank you all. I am so blessed.
