SCARY!! but nice

We all have to do scary things from time to time, get married, divorce, buying a house, having children(missed that one out). Today I signed a partnership agreement with friends Eleanor and Liese for a knitting shop, scary but exciting!

The shop knit nottingham opens at 12 tomorrow at 91 Mansfield Road, Nottingham selling wool, knitting and crochet accessories and some spinning fibres and accessories with more to come.

I will continue to work full time at my usual job and help out at the occassional workshop, Eleanor and Liese are the backbone of the company and will be running the shop etc.

The shop sign went up today and the stock is being sorted and displayed

AS I said, it's all a little scary but nice.

Congratulations Guzzisue, this is so exciting. I'm going to ask my cousin (he doesn't knit but lives in Nottingham)to visit.

hey, that's cool - I wish all three of you loads of happy customers and still time to knit yourselves:)) the downside of having a shop seems to be that people get too busy to do what they like most for themselves...
