Mystery Bag KAL

Well!  Let me tell you what!  If I thought I was busy last week...it was nothing compared to this week!  I can hardly hang on to this fast-growing thing called Appalachian Yarns.  The website is complete - needs some minor tweaking now, but there's no time! 

I innocently started a mystery bag KAL on Ravelry and with the help of my friend, Tal, it skyrocketed into a nearly 50 member KAL group and is still growing!  It has gone "international" with Germany, France, The Netherlands and Canada being represented as well as many of the U.S. states!!  So much fun to see everyone excited about this KAL!  The "mystery bag" has been designed by Tal, so she will be in charge of moderating/instructing the weekly events, as well as answering any questions.  In fact, this has been such a wonderful surprise that we plan to host a "mystery" KAL every month!  So, if you aren't yet a member of Ravelry - you need to sign up asap at Ravelry.com!!  If you just want to follow along - you can check out the KAL at http://www.appalachianyarns.com/ - click on the upper tab for the mystery bag KAL.  Particpants are listed there and when the KAL is finished, we hope to post as many bags as possible!

Business has been brisk with the advent of the KAL and I send many thanks to new friends and customers for their business and kind words of support.  We're already giving thoughts to expanding the catalog and would love to hear your suggestions!   We're having tons of fun here and hope you're tuning in to it!
