New Year, New Website, New Resolutions!

Do you ever start a new year feeling uneasy about all you left undone in the last year? I’m sure some of you do, or at least, I suspect this is a fairly common and natural thing to feel. Except for the most ethereal of us, I would say most people derive a great deal of satisfaction from the completion of tasks begun; or if not that, we feel more at peace when there is nothing we perceive to be hanging over our heads. I can leave any number of creative works in progress hanging out there in the “someday” pile, but I dislike the feeling of long-standing administrative tasks hanging over my head. Shiver! Escaping that feeling is probably why I have so many WIPs . . .

This revised and updated website is one of those things I’ve felt hanging over my head. While I’m sure it is technically straightforward to set up a beautiful, functional website these days, this task is out of my wheelhouse (I would spend infinitely more time repairing mistakes in lace) and therefore seems to require too much time and energy for me to justify withdrawing from my other responsibilities for anything more than brief moments at a time. But here it is, at last! Many thanks to the team at Rain Retail for their patience and persistence in making this happen! I hope you will enjoy checking back here often for happenings at Yarn Soup.

If your outstanding tasks include your UFOs (unfinished objects) and WIPs (works in progress), let Yarn Soup be the Rain Retail to your yarn-related projects. We love yarn, we love helping you solve problems, we LOVE celebrating your successes! We are here to help you move past those feelings of dread and get you back on the road to completion. Join us in 2020 for any and all of the following gatherings—let’s make this your best yarn year yet!
