Yes, it's true! Zen Yarn Garden is now an incorporated business and it's a bit surreal. What does this mean? Inc. means Zen Yarn Garden is its own entity and that legitimizes the business aspect of what I do. I am now "Director" of my own business. Kind of fun don't you think? I have been meaning to take this step for awhile and finally did just one day before my birthday.
What does Inc. mean for the future? Not sure but if I ever decide to grow the business with employees and such, Inc. makes it that much easier, however, I suspect I'll have a bit more paperwork to do at the end of the fiscal year than I do now. That I am not looking forward to but it's always a trade off isn't it? You get one thing but you inherit yet another responsibility. Hopefully the administrative side of things won't be too onerous - as my accountant said "not much will change other than filing differently at the end of the year". Okay, sounds good.
On the knitting side of things, I managed to finish knitting up an Annis shawl. This is a gorgeous design by Susanna IC and it's been on my "radar" for quite some time and when the right colourway fell into my lap, it was meant to be! I knit this in record time too - couldn't quite put it down and the design lends itself to quick knitting once you finish the border. I so love it and I loved stepping outside the box a little with a colourway that wasn't solid. All I keep hearing is "colourful yarns hide the lace" and I just can't quite believe that especially if you choose the right colourful yarn. Sure, maybe drastically different colours may "hide" the lace but find something with a few colours that are complimentary to each other and the lace shows up just fine! In fact, a bit of colour adds a whole new dimension to the lace don't you think?
