Loopy has some new jewelry. If you’ve been to Loopy Central in person, you know that we have this stuffed Loopy who stands on top of one of the shelves to greet you when you come in. (In his former life, he was a loved-on sheep in a kindergarten classroom. We think he likes it better here.) He has been wearing last years Spring Fling nametag for awhile now, but when I saw these tags, I knew he needed his own. It arrived yesterday, and he looks very proud to be wearing it, doesn’t he? But I have a dilemma. The fun thing about these tags is that you can have the back personalized, too. So the back of Loopy’s tag says “King of the Shop”. (And he is.) So the question is, which side should show – Loopy, or King of the Shop? (We won’t open up that whole “Wait, if it’s The Loopy Ewe, then shouldn’t Loopy be a SHE?” debate again. Been there, done that. Loopy is a he. Sometimes things just work differently in our yarn world.) So let me know what you think about the tag. And then go take a look at their blog, because the dog featured today has the perfect tagline on his tag.
Of course, who’s to say that these tags have to be for animals? Maybe your knitting bag needs a tag, declaring you the “World’s Fastest Knitter”. (Or at least the fastest knitter in YOUR world). Or “Loopy’s #1 Fan”. 🙂 Or someone who “Insulates with Wool”, or … well, you get the idea. Cute tags, nice people running the business, quick shipping, and they made Loopy look even more handsome this week. I like that combination.
oh he is the King and the tag should say so. if someone needs him to let them know they’re at TLE…then they’re in the wrong plce…
“King of the Shop”, by all means! And I didn’t know that Loopy was a “he”. Never thought about it, actually. 🙂 Those are great tags.
I think Loopy’s majestic presence says he’s king of the shop already so my vote is for Loopy + heart.
P.S. Be careful with your moving project!!!
I think you should turn it from time to time with out mentioning it so it is a surprise-
Here’s an idea… maybe for everday “wear” he should be Loopy. But, every now and then–say on special occasions or momentus events, he should wear the “King of the Shop” side–kinda like a celebration.
Ooohh, moving shelves to fit more yarn, perhaps?
My dog has had one of those fetching tags for the past few years, I’m thinking about getting him a new one (not that he needs it, but I just want to buy another one). They’re great!!
Better be on the King of the shop side or people might think ‘he’s’ a ewe. How embarrassing!
I like “King of the Shop” best. I saw these linked to on Pioneer woman recently. Cute!
I like the Loopy side.
Have you tried the dark chocolate pretzel slims from Trader Joe’s? Oh yum!
I vote for having the “King of the Shop” side showing. In my mind, he’s already “Loopy” by default so his other status – which might not be as well known – should be facing outwards. 🙂
King of the shop – more “manly” and “in charge” of the place
That is so cool!
I think that everyone who visits your shop knows that he’s Loopy, so I vote for
King of the Shop. Although that one blogger said turn it from time to time; that
might be a nice change of pace.
He is the King of the Shop
100% there with Carla. Flip it from time to time.
Everybody knows he’s Loopy. I vote for King of the Shop. I like those regal names. You did great, Sheri. I know he must be a happy guy.
King of the Shop! I’ll bet everyone working at the shop is a little Loopy. :0)
Love the tag, thinking my dogs need one too. I personally think that the Loopy side should be showing. Sure he knows who he is but not everyone else might.
Just for the record, HE’s always struck me as a “he”, not a she. That’s what Sheri is there for – she’s Queen of the Shop. 🙂
Good luck with the shelf moving – makes me hurt and tired just thinking about it.
Loopy is a subtle, quiet kinda guy. He knows he’s king and he keeps it close to the vest (as it were). So to the world he’s “Loopy”. I pet him every time I come in.
I think you should base it on how he’s feeling from day to day. On days where he’s feeling like King of the Shop, that’s the side that should show. If he’s having a plain old Loopy kind of day, well… There you go!
Though I think Paddy and Salty may need them.
I like the “Loopy” side, but turning it every so often is a great way to go!
Right there with Carla and Ruth. A change of pace is nice from time to time, isn’t it?
I agree with Carla and Ruth. Loopy for a while, then King of the Shop for a while.
Loopy reminds me of my sister’s cat, Janine, who was “King of the House”.
Take care with the moving!
Definitely “King of the Shop” 😀
I’m with Kathy. If they need the Loopy side showing to realize they are at TLE then they are doing something wrong! I would think the walls of yarn and sheep everywhere would make it obvious enough!
I like the last one “Insulates With Wool.” Though “Speed Knitter” might be funny.
“King of the Shop” definitely. Can’t wait to meet the “King” during the Spring Fling!
Loopy is King!! I need help. I started my sweat last night but where do I go to check in? Do I have to formally register…..I need HELP!!!
Those photos are SO cute – Love the glasses and socks on King Loopy.
the king side for sure!
Definitely king of the shop! 🙂
I’m glad to know Loopy is a “he” because things are different in the yarn world. I’ve always wondered why. Just read in a comment that Trader Joe’s has dark chocolate pretzel slims…those sound yummy. I may have to go to Chapel Hill soon (closest TJ’s is 1.25 hours away.
I like it better on the Loopy side… it looks more like a name tag and less like an award. But whatever floats his boat, I guess. And yours. It is a cute tag – I’m off to check out the website.
King of the Shop is my vote. I think he looks proud with that side out.
Oh, I don’t know Sher…..i about him liking it better at the Loopy When he was living in my Kindergarten classroom, his hame was “Mutton Chops” and he was loved-on by 44 “small wonders” everyday. But I am happy that you all love-on him now.
I have to vote for King of the Shop. We all know his name and being King should be reconized.
Loopy with occassional flips to KOTS, so noone confuses him with the queen.
Hey, I bet I know where you saw those! BTW, Emily broke her leg, but it is uncomplicated and now just a pain. For everyone.
Loopy got bling!!
Love the tag and the Loopy with the heart makes me smile.
