EPIC catch up

for the most current info on what's happening at 'paper and yarn' please check out our facebook page or paperyarnwire.com

Well...

Disappearing for two months usually means one of two things: I'm sick or I'm really crazy busy.

This month it was both with yeah!happy results (minus the death-flu thing of course).

I figure photo evidence is the best way to recap:

(The USPS and UPS guys are probably cursing me right now... )



Nature Spun by Brown Sheep Co. arrived the same day 50-ish pounds of Art Supplies did... sorry UPS guy





Party:Before


Party:After



Kraemer Yarn Co. arriving.


I won a great book from Ida of http://www.knit-a-while.com/ fame it arrived the same day as a full size box of cereal... odd combo but at least I had snacks to go with my new knitting book lol.




paper and yarn stitch markers are now available at Loops in Tulsa, OK!



To Sara of sarapaper.com, thank you for the replacement pom-pom makers... I couldn't find mine (I think the studio move ate them) so she bought me a new set and ta-dah finally finished scarf from 2008 :-/


This is my new favorite hat, fits great and I can tip the side up to look all retro-glam. Knit from some 'paper and yarn' shift worsted weight SW yarn.


for the PCK sweater kal. Castle by Quince and Co. knit in Universal Classic Worsted Tweed


and lastly... we hit over 500 sales in February!!!

thank you :)

Etsy Shop Updates 2011

Howdy Fiber folks,

Along with the new studio hullabaloo I've been updating our etsy shop with new Valentine's Day themed goodies and also a brand new color chart of available beads for customizing your stitch markers.



Some of the colors have been retired from our previous list, but we still managed to go from offering 20 color options to 25! (okay, maybe it was all the 'oh shiny' while shopping for other supplies... but I'm not saying anything...)
