Our reorganization of the shop is in full swing. Outside, our doors are locked, and we’ve hung sheets in the windows to hide the chaos within. What’s that? You’d like a peek at our chaos? You’re wondering just what we’re doing in there?
We’re rearranging all our yarn by weight, so that yarns with similar gauges are grouped together. Lace weight with lace weight, sport with sport, worsted with worsted, and so on, all the way up through super bulky. To get there, we’ve taken all our yarn off the shelves, bagged and labeled them, and sorted them by weight.
I know it looks like a sea of bags, but really it’s quite tame: the bagged bulky yarns go in this corner, the dk in that corner, the worsted weights go on the sofa, etc. The next step is getting them out of bags and into baskets and cubbies again, and we’re already well on our way. The books have been moved, as well, gathered onto just a few shelves from their disparate hiding places throughout the shop.
We can’t wait for Friday, when we can welcome you all back into the newly arranged Hillsborough Yarn Shop. See you then!
