I nearly missed the party, in fact we should have been in France but problems with the bike meant that I had an hour or so to spare on the first Saturday in September to help celebrate the shops first birthday.
For those of you that are not regular readers, I am one of the partners in a knitting shop called Knit Nottingham and we opened a year ago. The shop has grown over the last year and we are now on line with knitting yarn, hand spun yarn and accessories including drop spindles listed for sale. This is mainly due to the hard work of Eleanor, the shop manager. I have no idea where she gets the energy from to put in the hours that she does!!!
As I work full time elsewhere, my role has been very much one of giving what support I can from attending craft fairs,
teaching the occasional workshop
writing the odd blog post
taking part in charity fund raisers
and counting stock.
Maybe one day this will be my main job, but for the time being I'm loving being involved with this enterprise.
So due to the bike mishap I was able to deliver some chocolates to the shop and even have my photo taken with the other partners ( well nearly all of them) but was soon dragged away by a phone call to say that things were OK and we were going to head south to catch a ferry.....more of that story in a later post.
