Happy Friday! If you are new to my newsletter, welcome! We have made many new friends this week, and I am so grateful for the Charlotte Area Yarn Crawl. You are all amazing!
I realized this week that some of my newsletters might be confusing because I assume everyone knows who we are. So I decided to take this time to introduce us. That way if you ever read past or future newsletters you will know my family and can put a face with a name.
I realize that I named all my children with L names. I can’t keep them straight. I get their names right about 1% of the time. Usually, I call them every name I know before their actual name. My advice to new moms having more than one child – Yell those names out loud and ask yourself, do they sound alike? If you get tongue-tied, you might want to go to plan B with the names. Good luck!
Hi, my name is Kim. I like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain. Actually, I’m not too fond of either of those things. But if you know the song, I bet it’s stuck in your head now also! You’re Welcome. 🙂
You can find our Pink Couch Yarn Shop Story on our website to learn how I decided to risk it all, throw caution to the wind, and embrace my insanity, and all those other sayings. So far so good!
I’m a creator on a mission to overwhelm myself with every fiber craft out there. So far I’m doing a great job. I love making people happy and do my best to stay as positive as I can. It’s hard work, but I rather not have yucky feelings so I just let that sh*t go!
This is Logan, my oldest daughter. She is at UNCC studying Anthropology in the Early Masters Program.
I know that sounds amazing, and it is, but we are pretty sure she spends about 20 hours a day reading textbooks. She doesn’t have much time for anything else.
If you want to have a great conversation with her, ask her about death. She loves talking about death. Yeah, I know we don’t understand it either, but we support her.
While she loves death, she also is fantastic at dyeing yarn. So basically she will talk to you about death and dyeing. See what I did there. 😀
This is Lily, the grown-up in the shop, and my middle daughter. She decided that, right now, college isn’t for her, and she wants to be an entrepreneur. Since this was all her idea, she is in this with me!
Lily is known for her mural on the wall in our store, the social media posts, all the graphics in our shop (including the little stubby dogs), her great chalkboard signs, most displays, and is very talented at finding the coolest yarn, tools, and gifts.
While you should compliment her on her artistic ability, please tone it down, if she knows her full potential, she might leave me. No mother wants that, right? 😉
Lastly, this is Lindsay, the baby, and the tallest in our family. She is 14 and a freshman in High School.
She keeps us on our toes in many ways and sometimes exhausts me. Being a teenager is hard, and most of us wouldn’t go back to that for all the money in the world.
She loves kids and our Kraft Time. She is an expert Pom-pom maker.
If you see her with her feet up on the couch, tell her to get to work! We have probably told her this already, but again a teenager brain only hears what it wants to hear. Maybe she’ll listen to you? It takes a village people!
While the four of us stuck our head in the lightbox to get our picture taken, a few others who work here were not subjected to that torture.
Diann is an avid knitter and is learning to crochet. (Thanks to the addiction of our basket bottoms!) She keeps our shop in order, and is happy to help you in any way!
Hope is a Davidson College Student. She is working on our blog and making sure I include all the classes on our website that we put on social media. It’s a big job because I never know what I did. She also will answer to the name Paige. I must think she looks like a Paige and not a Hope because it’s a 50/50 chance I call her Paige instead of Hope. I don’t know why I do this. I don’t even know a Paige.
