Yarn Love...

Today has been a wonderful day. Not only is the sun shining, but today I received a VERY exciting very first Yarn Love order!!! Yes, Yarn Love - delicious, scrumptious, heavenly skeins of yarn. I even had to do a bit of a celebratory yarn dance, much to the bf's bewilderment.

Look! Look at the beauty of Yarn Love...

Ahh, it is love at first sight.

It will be going on to the website in the next couple of days. There are some absolutely gorgeous shades in Juliet, Marianne Dashwood and Scarlett O'Hara. And, even more excitingly, Pure Purl is currently sole UK stockist!

Let me introduce you...

My name is Kim and a think it is fair to say that I am a yarnaholic. Since finishing my degree last year and having a complete meltdown over what on earth to do with it (since all of my friends seemed to have everything figured out and the bf studying to become a solicitor) I decided to follow my love of all things yarny and set up my own business

Nearly a year on I live in the beautiful York with the bf in a little house full of wool - what more could I want? Well perhaps a bit of organisation wouldn't go a miss. I have to admit that I am not naturally a tidy person and these days every room seems to have wool in it. Even bf's office has been taken over with wool, but despite his subtle hints and raised eyebrows I think he secretly loves it.

Although I class the website as my day job I have another part time job to pay the bills (in a well known department store) which I dislike to say the least . The only good thing about it has been meeting my friend Kate with whom I get to chat about all things crafty and wooly until we are told to 'mingle' with customers who are honestly the grumpiest people I have come across.

But hey, apart from that, life is good! I hope to use this blog as a place to tell you about exciting website related info, so feel free to let me know if there is anything you would like to see more of.
