Necessity is the mother of inventory.

Ahhh joy. Inventory time has arrived.

All but one of the 16 Loops Troops dug in yesterday to count ALL THAT yarn. Well, not quite all. We still have lots more to go, and since we are all really into finishing things (haha), we are going to close today (Monday) for inventory. We will re-open Tuesday at 11 a.m. Here are Annie and Ingrid counting away. What a surprise, Ingrid has chosen to count the cashmere.

We were all looking our Sunday (the-boss-dragged-us-out-of-bed-to-count-yarn) best. So when I asked if anyone had a project I could take a picture of, Kendall was happy to oblige - provided her face didn't show. So here is anonymous Kendall with her 100% silk, lace, reversible shawl. This is a new yarn that will be arriving in the next few weeks, and Kendall has promised to teach a class.

Paula said she didn't have any projects with her – then I noticed her sneaking out with this fabulous bag. It's the "sea anemone" bag from the Tracy Ullman book (with a couple adaptations), in Manos.

Emily is so excited about her "first really hard project." Mind you, this 17-year-old has made felted intarsia bags and socks out the wazoo. So we hope you are inspired by her sweater in Pure Merino from a recent Interweave Knits. Emily says "Yay!" Her mom, Gina says "It's a-DOR-able!"

In contrast, we have a rare shot of Gina H. making something that is NOT mind-numbingly difficult. This is a simple scarf in Karabella's Aurora 8. Gina loves this yarn - incredible stitch definition. And January is a month for doing what you really want, whether it's a complex sweater or a simple scarf for yourself. Because, after the holiday knitting frenzy, you've earned it. Seriously.

Coming up...more spring orders may arrive this week, along with three huge needle orders, hopefully some re-orders from Cascade, Manos and others, and some more surprises. I will probably put a few yarns on special this week after inventory. And next week, five of us head to San Diego for the spring TNNA show. So there should be lots of, um, interesting pics. See you then.

Hi Shelley,
As an encouragement, I love your inventory! I had such fun shopping your store in Tulsa the day after Christmas. Here's my blog to check out the post I did on your great shop. Later, Terri Lynn
