A few more details to fix, more yarn lines to add, but if there is anything that I can find for you please email!

So Many Things to Knit

January 16. 2013
    I know I have made a good decision to take my business out of a brick and mortar shop.  I am so much more relaxed, but more importantly, I feel like knitting.  I have so many things that I want to knit...

     I just received my first shipment of yarn. It is so much fun opening those boxes!
Now I can start my "Lanesplitter". I must not be tempted by the beautiful colours in Diamond Luxury Collection Foot Loose.  Nor the Debbie Bliss Eco Baby....focus, focus...at least until the Malabrigo 4 book arrives...

MALABRIGO BOOK 4

January 15, 2013

    I am really looking forward to the latest Malabrigo book 4  and look at the luscious colours!

2013- A Year of Transition

December 29, 2012

     I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday and had lots of time to celebrate, rest, and of course knit.

Although there were lots of preparations and goings on at my house, I must admit I was always thinking about Yarn Indulgences and what I wanted to do with the business.

     I will be developing  a webpage complete with online ordering. I hope to find studio space for classes, demonstrations and knit and chats.

     In the meantime, all my distributors would love to continue to work with me to provide you with as many of your knitting needs as possible.

     For your enjoyment have a look at:
 www.diamondyarn.com

       If there is anything that I can find for you please email for payment and shipping options.

Thanks, and
Happy New Year
Jennifer

THANKS!

December 8, 2012

     Thankyou to everyone for their  support over the last 5 years.  It has been an amazing journey.  The market location built up a community that shocked and surprised me with all their comments over the last 3-4 weeks.  I had no idea how my shop influenced so many people. 

        Because of this show of support I will be considering how I can continue to be a local yarn shop for this area. 
Keep an eye on the blog in the new year for more info.

Take care,  happy holidays, and best wishes,
Jennifer
