Yesterday my cell phone rang, and it was one of my co-workers. There were some ladies in from the town where my brother lives (45 minutes away). They bought three of my bags, a hat and scarf set that's been there for almost three years (knit it when we first took the yarn shop over), and a pair of kids socks. Two of the bags they bought were the ones I finished Saturday. Then today I was working, and a lady bought my two pairs of adult socks, so now there's only two pairs of kids socks left. She loves hand-knit socks, and by the sounds of it if I can get more knit she'll most likely get them. So I went home today with another small bag of yarn to make some more stuff for the store, tyring to sneak it in between my Christmas knitting. (Circle of Life -- make money off selling knitted goods, spend money earned on more yarn....)

Still no sign of the sock yarn order. I sent them an e-mail to see if it has been shipped yet. We have about four or five people (in addition to myself!) impatiently awaiting its arrival. Haven't heard back yet. When the Boss Lady gets back from Boston she'll need to order some Austermann, too, since we only have about eight skeins of color 01 and only one of 11, and that's it! *Edit: Got an e-mail back from the company. Their supplier was short, and they won't even be getting the yarn til next week! So that means we probably won't get it til the end of November. :(
Some assembly required.

Happy knitting!

Wow! Now, this is a great success - I'm so glad that you managed to sell such a lot of your goodies! And as I see it, that's a very good circle of life - earning money on knitted items to buy yarn to knit some more - perfect, I'd say ;) But of course that's what every knitter would say, no? ;) Anyhow - congratulations!
