On the needles.... I know that I've been fairly quiet lately. I started a new full time job after Thanksgiving and that's been a bit of an adjustment. It's been quite a while since I've been teaching full time (over 9 years actually!) but I love my new job and I'm settling in. I've started knitting up some new dishcloth patterns and I have a bunch that are almost ready to add to the website and a lot more that are just waiting to be knitted up. I have to block some of the dishcloths I've knitted and take photos of others. I may have to resort to my old method of scanning the cloths for now, but I will take some decent pictures at some point as well. I haven't done a full count, but I think I have 7 or 8 new designs about ready to add to the site. I've been a little unorganized lately and I have to track them all down on the mess that my desk has become. For those that know me, you wouldn't recognize my desk! I'm never as unorganized as this! The mailing list.... For those of you who don't know about it, I have a new mailing list. I have signed up with MailChimp to handle my mailing list and I LOVE them! It is so easy to use and it is easy for people to subscribe or unsubscribe (I hope you don't want to!) at will. You might want to sign up for the mailing list if you haven't. I don't email out very much and I've been considering setting up a Spring Fever sale - I am so tired of all this snow! If I run a sale that's the only time I'll send out a few more emails than usual (a couple a week versus almost none the rest of the time). You'll be notified if I add any new patterns to the website, when I put patterns on sale and you'll get exclusive coupon codes good for the website to take additional percentages off on your purchase. You can sign up on the mailing list to the right of this post -----------> where it says "Newsletter Signup". Your email is all that is required, but if you enter in your name then your emails will come to you as Dear____ with your name filled in. :) Fancy, right? I love new toys. And of course I will reassure you that I would NEVER sell, rent, share, or give away your name or email address to anyone. I hate spam just as much as you do.
