Good News, Bad News

Good news: You all ordered enough yarn to tide you over for the 3 weeks between this Sneak Up and the next. Holy cow!!

Bad news: We’ve packed so many orders that we’re dreaming about them in our sleep.

Good news: We ought to be all finished up by tomorrow so that we can get a good night’s sleep again.

Bad news: The mailman is extremely annoyed.

Good news: He’s a sub. Our regular mailman will be back on Monday and still likes us.

Bad news: I’ll be leaving Monday morning, so no blogging for 2 weeks.

Good news: I may need to slip in a post sometime, if anything exciting is going on. I’ll miss you all too much.

Bad news: Or maybe not. Maybe I’ll be too busy knitting. πŸ™‚

Good news: Our first case of Wollmeise arrived so I can take a skein to knit on vacation.

Bad news: It’s just one of several cases and the rest haven’t arrived yet.

Good news: You are going to LOVE this yarn, if you haven’t tried it before.

Bad news: I do, too. I had a hard time picking just one color.

Good news: Susan-the-awesome-assistant (who has put in so much overtime this week to help with all of these Sneak Up orders – we love her) will be here packing orders for you while we’re gone.

Bad news: That means that you can still get orders while I’m gone.

Good news: That means that you can still get orders while I’m gone.
(ahem – some will see this as good, some will see this as bad. Take your pick.)

Bad news: We already have some more really wonderful yarn in-house for the next Sneak Up. (Oh – wait – that’s good news!)

Good news: Using the Random Number Generator, the winner of this month’s “What was your first job” contest is Phyllis! She gets a $35 Loopy credit in her account, to buy some fun Loopy Loot. (I had so much fun reading all of your comments. I’m thinking that most teen-agers ought to read through them all. They’ll realize how nice they have it nowadays, don’t you think? Wow – there were some doozies in there.)

Have a great couple of weeks and get lots of knitting done. I’ll be asking about that when I get back! I’ll also share the Q3 Loopy Challenge with you when I return.

Hugs to you, Sheri (gotanygoodnews/badnewstosharewithmetoday?)


  1. Bad news: I don’t get to take a vacation this summer. Waaah waaah waaah.

    Good news: I get to vicariously vacation when my blogfriends post their photos! πŸ™‚

    REALLY Good News: I got my Loopy Ewe package yesterday! Yay! Love love love that Duet Raspberrine!

    Have fun Sheri!

  2. Good News: It’s been FOREVER since a Sheri post so she’ll be back really soon!

    Bad News: It’s not been as long as I thought (or as it felt?), she’ll still be gone a whole other week! *sob*

  3. Sheri,

    Hurry back, we miss our sock yarn fix on the Sneak Ups and hearing from you every week. I sincerely hope you had a wonderful, well-deserve vacation. Just hurry back safe and sound. The amount of Fleece Artist in my blood is low and I’m starting to have hallunications about not having enough sock yarn for SOS!

  4. good news: I have not yet gone into anaphylactic shock from not having sneakups for this long.

    bad news: when you finally get home, all rested and refreshed and full of great stories, I may actually have to remortgage a kidney to pay for the saved-up yarn buying spree that I’m sure to be on any time now.

    we totally miss you, Sheri! Hope you’re having a FABULOUS vacation full of peace and yarn. Not necessarily in that order.
