Mabel’s Closet–delayed a week

So very, very sorry, but we won’t be able to release Hannah Fettig’s Mabel’s Closet on Monday. Darn!

As you’ve heard on this blog (over and over), we’re assembling a dye house in nearby Biddeford. And it’s slow going. One step forward, a half-step back, etc. We ARE getting there, but you can’t believe the number of minor and time-eating glitches that pop up when you’re running pipes, mounting a chimney, tuning motors, checking hoists,  examining tanks for leaks, putting up walls, mudding sheet rock, painting, sanding floors, running wiring, hanging lights, etc. This is so not knitting.

That said, we had hoped to dye our first skein this week. Just imagine the joyous cries you would have heard had we succeeded!

But no. Not quite.

Next week? Maybe. But on second thought, no. It’s Thanksgiving.

Then week after next. Yes! For sure. We hope.

So, given that we are out of every single yarn used in Mabel’s Closet, we’re putting off the book’s release until Monday Nov. 26. When we might very well have the yarn to go with it.

In the meantime, to ease the pain, we offer the photo above, a mellow corner in Hannah’s house, and a lovely reminder that creativity requires a little chaos.

AND we’re hosting another giveaway. We’ll choose a winner on Monday from this week’s comments. (See our previous post.) And starting on Monday, 11/19, we’re doing another giveaway or Hannah’s book. If you don’t win with your comment this week, make another one on Monday, and you might have better luck next time.

Thanks, dear readers, for your patience.
