Hi everyone, just want to give you all a heads up on current status . . . you are NOT forgotten.
Priority One: E-commerce update –> close storefront
In my last post I said I needed to get the e-commerce for KnittingToday.com back operational. Well, it is working, now I have to get products loaded and get ready to sell some things. One of the reasons this had to happen was our old website was SOOOO out of date that I was issuing more refunds than sales. And, when I took down the website, it made having the storefront unnecessary. So, Saturday we had a final sale day and anything left is boxed up and waiting for Tom to list on E-bay. Now I can focus on listing the items for upcoming knitalongs and projects on the knittingtoday.com website. I had to purchase some software that will link any purchases made from the website to the clubknit website (and learn how to install and configure it — ugh!). Visit http://www.knittingtoday.com/store.
Priority Two: Education and Inspiration
I listed four projects in the last blog post. No progress has been made on them AT all. In fact, I didn’t even have them on my calendar to work on. How sad is that. I’ll remedy that this week. My office at home now has the LK150 and all of my knitting needles and supplies in residence. I’m ready to knit, when I’m not distracted by the view!!
The inspiration and education projects i am working on are:
- Stormy Weather Tunic turned cardigan (for lk150)
- Fisher Lassie (handknit)
- Luxury Yarn Club (as club members you will get a discount)
- Get It Out of the Box class (for lk150)
- Cables class (replaces KT Newsletter — for LK150)
- A surprise freebie project of my own design (LK150 or Hand)
Priority Three: Education and Community
I decided I want to move this to priority one!! Community is so important to me. My creativity and enthusiasm is fed by everyone talking with each other, asking questions, and sharing. In order to do that, I have to do some things to make it easier and more intuitive to use the forum software area of the site. Look for that coming up.
Back to work . . . . comment below and give me input, cheer me on, take over, whatever . . . I just want to know you are here!!
