2015 Wrap Up

New Years 2015/6


Let’s face it, this is what we’ll all be writing in the for the next 2 months right?  At least I know I will!


As we do every year, we like to wrap up 2015 by telling you about our year at the shop.  We did it last year, and in 2013.

DKU student identification card

Nanny’s ID


595 Class Registrations!
Yeah! We are so, so happy about this. And there are even more chances for learning this coming year. If you know a friend that is ready to learn, we have learn to knit options almost every week through April! And remember, every registered student in this trimester earns 10% discount on any purchase through the trimester.  So that’s a 10% discount through April!
bead happy necklace
Our most popular kit – by far – this year was Diane’s Bead Happy Necklace Kit.  If you didn’t make one yourself, you are missing out.  It’s so fun!  Click here to get registered for a class to make the kit, or stop in and buy one.  So fun and easy!
The misc item in the shop we sold the most of?  Our Blueq gum is the winner this year again. So funny and fun.
uptown spirit stripes scarf
Our most challenging project this year?  You’d think it was a hard fair isle hat or a sweater?  Nope it’s a simple knit 2, purl 2 scarf.  Who knew this one would be so challenging!!  This project required patience and flexibility for knitters this year:)  The yarn, Uptown Worsted Spirit Stripes in the Packers color was our top selling yarn this year.  The Vikings color was a close 2nd!
One of our most popular yarns and colors?  Hikoo Simplicity in white:) This yarn, in this color sold more than just about any other yarn.  Cream color was a close second.  We LOVE this yarn and the worsted version, Simpliworsted. Two of our most favorite yarns in the shop. You must love it too!
Our most popular brand of yarn, Quince & Co.  We sold more skeins of Quince than any other yarn brand.

These two projects were our most popular of 2015 in the shop.  Carroll’s Cotton Lustre Wrap and Carly’s Linen Stitch Cowl. 
Thanks so much for another terrific year.  We feel lucky every day to get to do this job!  Here’s to a happy, healthy and blessed 2016 for all of us!
