well it snowed yesterday, I only know this because I was feeling a little better and got up for my 9am class. By 11.30 ish it had turned to slushy rain, one good thing about getting up so early is that you can go for breakfast after class – I went to Monster Mash with Sarah :).

This post was originally in our newsletter last week and since then several subscribers have reached out with incredible kindness to say that they'll miss the club but want to keep supporting us. We appreciate that so much, and, although we obviously need purchases to keep the business going there are lots of other ways that you can support us. I've added a few notes at the end on ways that you can support our business and my design work without spending money. All of them apply to other small yarn businesses, and many of them to small businesses of all kinds.
