Since announcing the sale at my shop, I have sold a ton of fabric.
Seriously. A ton.
But hardly any yarn, and I just haven’t been able to understand. I thought it was a pretty good deal, but…maybe it wasn’t a good enough deal.
Well, tonight, I had an idea in my head and I wanted to check on a yarn color, so I toodled off to the online shop to look at what I have.
And there was only like 2 yarns in that category. Now, I’m pretty sure there are more yarns in that category in the shop, because I stare at it every time I’m in the shop, so I decided to poke around the rest of the yarn section to see if maybe the yarn I was looking for was misclassified.
There was barely any yarn in ANY category. Seriously.
Color me mystified.
So, I went to poke around the admin side of hte shopping cart. Yup, there was all of the yarn in the list…why wasn’t it showing up in the shop????
Somehow, nearly all of the yarn had gotten marked as having Inventory Tracked, but the product quantity was…a big fat zero.
This is not something where Suzanne accidentally checked a checkbox — we’re talking over 150 individual products. I suspect I know when it happened, but I can’t explain exactly WHY. Exactly why or how doesn’t really matter, but oh heavens.
Here I sit, imagining the people who have clicked through from Ravelry, or from the Google ad, or from the sale notification, wondering why I’m touting the yarn I sell, when it didn’t appear that I actually sell any yarn besides a few skeins of Opal sock yarn and Black Cascade 220.
So! If you are a knitter, or know a knitter, or want to just look at some pretty colors of yarn, guess what! The yarn is now showing on my site! And it’s 30% off!

You describe me, Suzanne. I’ll have to take another peek at your blog.
me too — went to look at your yarn a couple of times and came away thinking “is that all?” I’ll go back and look again!

Same here – I’ll be checking it out this weekend!
Gotta love a yarn sale!!
I sent an order yesterday – right after I read this blog post. Hope you sell “a ton”.
Did you know that socks are my new obsession? What a timely post, I went and ordered some yarn too.
