Don't make it perfect, get it started.
I don't remember the exact quote or what episode it was in, I tend to binge listen to my favorite podcasts, but the thought stuck nonetheless. Suddenly, it would pop to the forefront of my thoughts at the slightest nudge. Whether thinking about a huge step, like starting a new business, or something more commonplace, like doing the dishes, the only way to get to what you want is to start in the first place. (If you've listened to Happier, I'm a Rebel, it's all about what I want)
So, this is me starting. Starting a new blog. My first blog. My first blog post. It's terrifying. And rather thrilling.
Im Elizabeth, often Libby, and I'll answer to both. I live in and love the Pacific Northwest. Moving here when I was 8 was like moving to summer camp, permanently. I'm starting a new, Le Petite Mouton, business with my favorite sister, Ariel. We're working towards the opening of a boutique yarn store, an LYS, in Spokane Washington. Our focus is customer service and hard to find yarn. We are currently offering classes, drop in and bringing in a new yarn every few weeks. Our first yarn arrived yesterday! The incredible Wooly Worsted from Ewe Ewe. It's overwhelming at the best of times and downright scary at the worst.
I'll be posting photos and writing about all kinds of topics. I'm a knitter and I occasionally crochet. Find me on Ravelry. I'm a baker, a podcast lover, a former nanny (I still work in a nursery one day a week), a volunteer with children and youth, a supporter of small business and advocate of buying local and now a small business owner. Most important though, is that I am a learner. The driving force behind all passions I have, is the unrelenting desire to learn new things. My best self is talking a little too fast and excitedly about something I just read or listened to.
I want my blog to be a place to focus and reflect on all of the changing and moving pieces of my life and business. A place to share. At the end of each post I'll have focal points of my week.
Hopefully, you find something to chew on; a yarn, fiber, pattern, technique, podcast, concept, quote, recipe or experience.
What does your dream yarn store look like?
