Ever have a dream to do something and the minute you’re excited about it, it’s squashed. That’s how I feel today as I ponder opening my own yarn shop. After talking, quite in depth with my husband, I realized the economy hasn’t completely stabilized and my love for something may go down the drain the minute my doors open. Do you agree? You know . . . he could be wrong though.

I have a vision for my yarn shop; fully stocked walls that house multi-colored fibers, samples to show in those fibers, an array of books to choose from, gadgets, needles hanging from hooks installed in the clapboard walls, a barn-like appearance that creates warmth, a large rectangular table placed in the center of the room with faithful customers knitting away, a side room filled with hand-made items on display as crafters learn a new trick or two, a class taught by an experience knitter friend of mine, and me dancing around the store in hopes of helping my newest customer find that perfect pattern to begin such a fun craft.

So, you see, my dream of a yarn shop is vivid. I’d call it The Artful Yarn; corresponds well with my Etsy shop.

We all live in a dream world, but sometimes our dreams are put on hold. Do you have a dream? Care to share? Put it out there for everyone to read, because our dreams can become our realities, if we just believe hard enough.

Here’s to dreaming…

As I always say,

Knit On!

    I think that's a wonderful dream Deb! And you know, it takes a while to do the research, write the business plan, look into funding options, etc. I'd just start now…in a year when you've laid the groundwork the economy may be more conducive to something like that. (SCORE has free info sessions, one-on-one counseling, etc. – highly recommend them!)

    As for my dream? It's parked next to our garage waiting for April 1…:-)

    Oh Pam! I know your dream. I'm excited for you two. Dreams are only that until we turn them into reality. Yours will happen soon. Thanks for sharing, my friend!

    Sounds like a lovely dream! I don't think that the economy is always what stops us from accomplishing our dreams. I think that it has more to do with the fact that we still have something else to learn before we are able to see things realized. It is like constructing a building, we have to go one brick at a time. And of course, timing is key!
