Okay, so it’s been a few weeks since they were here, but I wanted to share with you all the great fun we had with this sweet little sampling of candid pictures. You can always find more of the photos in my Facebook fan page gallery!
Squeakers just has to take the show!:
This is how those fabulous Heirloom Knitting Needles are made:
Making great content isn’t always beautiful. Sometimes you have to cook in front of the fire, like poor Greg had to do for the audio!:
And finally, a sneak peek at the basement. Squeakers is exhausted from all of the excitement. What a day it was!:
Again, without all of you to support us, Darn Good Yarn would never have won this awesome grant. Thank you for everything you do!

Alright, it’s all over. Time to resume a normal day at Darn Good Yarn (I might be too ecstatic to do that!). Mike, the Darn Good Husband, and I had such a blast with the FedEx crew! They were absolutely amazing. Thank you all for coming out to hang with us!
We managed to take some fabulous behind the scenes photos while they were here. Check them out!:
I don’t think I could have a bigger smile! I can’t express in words how exciting everything was!
And here’s a thumbs up from The Darn Good Husband (he was such a wonderful husband that week!–well, he’s always wonderful):
One of the other things Darn Good Yarn did was show FedEx how we work in the community. Here’s a picture of us at the Agway, teaching people to knit (with big needles and fabulous yarn, of course!):
This was such a memorable event for us, and we have to send a big thank you to ALL of our Darn Good Yarn fans! We couldn’t have gotten here without you. Big love going out to everyone!

Hey everyone! Some really cool things have just happened. Remember back when Darn Good Yarn won that $25,000 grant award from FedEx? Well, they’re in my living room! Yup, here’s me sitting all cool and collected (psst! Look at how tidy my desk is!):
..and look at that, I’m even wearing FedEx colors! Alright, deep breath. It’s going to be hectic here with the filming crew, but it’s a great way to show a big business how hard small business owners work. I mean, most businesses start out this way, right?
Here they are setting up for the interview:
It feels really official now! Well, I can’t post too many behind the scenes pictures right now…I gotta build up the suspense! More pictures can be found on my Facebook page if you haven’t already joined me.
Oh, and here’s a picture at the Agway, just before we start the knitting class! (Yeah, that’s the Darn Good Husband in the background there!):
So excited! Stay tuned for more teasers.

It’s true. It’s Tuesday and my second, third and fourth winds have abandoned me and all we’re left with is one crazy owner of Darn Good Yarn.
I hope you get a laugh, I know I did…. I have been told I’m my own best friend…that’s a good thing right?
