I have been away for way too many weeks now. But I’m making my way back, and I think I can probably tentatively share a few of the things that have been going on.
I’ve mentioned before that we’re trying to move house – we’re only moving a few streets away, but it’s be a tough process (and one that I really hope we don’t have to do again for YEARS and YEARS.
Hopefully things are going to get finalised in the next couple of weeks and we’ll get to move either at the end of May or sometime in early June. I’ll have to close the shop around the time of the move, and it won’t open again until we get broadband installed at the new house. (But even so it should only be shut for a few weeks.
However when I come back, I’m planning to have a sale – as well as some extra yarn that has been sitting patiently in the wings waiting for me to be able to finish processing it.
Unless we have an awful, constantly wet summer, then the move (after some settling in) should allow me to start dyeing again, and I’m planning to be in regular dyeing mode from the end of June(ish) to September in preparation for the autumn.
I guess I just wanted you to know that Oxford Yarn really does still exist. It’s just that big life stuff has taken over here, and so it got a bit nudged to the side.
Personally I can’t wait to move and start getting settled in our new house (with a garden! So exciting.) And I really can’t wait to get some freshly dyed yarn onto the washing line. Expect photos when I do!
