I must say, the lack of traffic on the street and in the air, and the more people out walking, is a pleasant change to our hurry-up, I-want-it-yesterday lifestyle.  I hope that our adherence to new restrictions is having the desired affect of “flattening out the curve” of the Covid-19 virus.   My shop is closed—but don’t worry—only as long as necessary.  I’m trying not to be offended that I am considered a “non-essential” business.  Ouch.  I understand that non-knitters and non-crocheters don’t understand how essential a small business like mine is; we know the only way we can survive this pandemic is if we have the next project lined up.  That being said, I am doing my part to keep us connected.  I have a Zoom Yarn Tasting on April 3rd at 5:00 (first Friday of the month due to Good Friday on the second Friday).  I am available for private lessons with Zoom, and, of course, I will talk you through via phone any knitting or crocheting trouble you are having.  I will also mail anything you need.  I know the online store can be frustrating, especially on a phone, so sometimes a call is quicker:  603-869-2600 or 603-616-9249.  If I don’t pick up, please leave a message.  The online store does not keep patterns and needles and some of the yarns that have resale restrictions on them, so a phone call is needed for those.  Let’s keep in touch and spend this precious time cultivating a healthy lifestyle that may change our priorities for the rest of our lives.
