Yarn Shoppe Mystery (What does Sherri do with her time?)
  • It's January - So naturally I had to clean.  I took everything out of the east storeroom and reorganized.  4 days later - it looks amazing!    (Can you spot the reindeer that is waiting for next year?)
  • Our retail committee welcomed a wonderful new shop to Albia - "The Mustard Seed"
  • Attended annual Chamber banquet and worked with our chamber director on a grant request for the "Princeton Alley" project.  Princeton was the original name of Albia.

Congrats to Dot Maudlin on knitting this beautiful sweater!  The front panel is made using an Angora/Cormo Wool yarn.  The remainder of the sweater was matched up perfectly using Moonshine yarn which is 40% Wool; 40% Alpaca; 20% Silk.   We carry moonshine yarn in a variety of colors.  The Angora blend yarn is hand spun for the shoppe by Mary Parks who raised the Angora fiber.
