close knit: the neighborhood yarn shop

Sunday, March 22, 2020


This is the message that Sally posted over on our Instagram page on Saturday, 3/21:

I’m so delighted when the Trillium pop up in my garden. The simple sign of Spring outside my door makes it all feel alright...and normal. These days are anything but normal, I’m afraid. 

Close Knit is hitting the PAUSE button at closing time today. We have never ever, not once cancelled a day in the shop due to snow, sleet, or storm in 15 years. This one is different friends. We are pausing to get a grip on what this means to our safety, yours, and beyond.

We were delighted to cautiously see so many of you this week stocking up on projects because we all know that creativity, color and texture are healing for our souls!! However, every day this week seemed to need a course correction in how to safely deal with having a retail business, serve you all, and keep Close Knit chugging along. We do things the old fashioned way at the shop and we only sell face to face or on the phone. 

Sooooo, this week we are going to be in the shop just three days for a couple hours to take calls and messages on anything you might need or want. Our phone is 503-288-4568 and we will be in the shop Monday 3/23, Wednesday 3/25, and Friday 3/27 from 11-1. 

We can package up what you need and deliver to our curb or deliver it via USPS. We will be rethinking our approach in a week after a BIG DEEP BREATH! We hope to post things on Facebook, our blog and here on IG that inspire you, show you yarn in the shop and tell ya we are still here!šŸ‘‹šŸ‘‹šŸ‘‹šŸ‘‹šŸ‘‹šŸ‘‹šŸ‘‹šŸ‘‹ PLEASE TAKE CARE ALL OF YOU!!❤️❤️
