58:365 The Day after Stitches West
Today, the van needed to be back at 9am and filled with gas. Guess who did that? Me and Aday! We stopped by headed back home, picked up Ysolda and headed to the shop.
I always forget that the shop is very busy right after Stitches. The shop was bustling with activity as people stop in from out of town and putting everything back in its place.
We only have one license for our point of sale system, so, over the weekend, the staff wrote all sales tickets by hand while we used the license on our laptop at the shop. So, we needed to transfer the files from this weekend, over to the shop desktop computer, and start using that system again. The less double bookkeeping the better, right? There was a bit of a problem with the transfer, which entailed a call to customer service, but for the most part the transfer went smoother than last year. We ran to the bank, made a deposit, and I headed home to take a long nap. I am so thankful that my staff is there to help and to take care of things. I would be an absolute bear right now without them.
I have uploaded a bunch of photos from the weekend, am working on editing them, and will post them in the next couple days. Now, I get to cast-on with my new Toots LeBlanc. Can't wait!!
