Knit ‘n Needle’s NEW online Shoppe
Welcome, everyone to polkadotsheep.com! We’ve been working on this site for sometime now, and are breathing a sigh of relief that it is finally live. In the brainstorming phase, months and months (and months and months) ago, long before the new site became a reality, I sat down with a couple of other yarn obsessed knitters to discuss the essentials of an online store. Together, we decided that first, we needed a highly detailed image of the yarn we were considering purchasing. No more of this little thumbnail color image most sites offer. We wanted a picture of an entire skein, and more. We wanted a close up image where we could actually see the texture and ply of a yarn. Lucky for us, our genius team of code writers knew how to make our desire a reality. Check out our magnifying glass… just hover your mouse over the product image and enjoy. It’s dreamy. Almost like having the skein in hand.
We came up with a long list of features that day that we wanted on our new web site. And, though at times, our web masters thought we were crazy and asking for a little too much, we all agree it was well worth the extra effort. So take a look around. I think you’ll find it very user-friendly with great search options, a terrific rewards program, a lenient return policy, and hassle free shipping. In the upcoming weeks, we’ll be offering coupons to our Facebook fans, Raverly friends, and Twitter followers, so be sure to stay tuned.
I’d like to thank a few people who have pushed and nudged me into making this site a reality:
A great many thanks to Denyel B., Jamie H. (telogirl2003), Angela M (attemptedknitter)., Lee M., Kendra H., Helen H., Marcy S., Caitlin H., and to my husband, Rob.
I also want to extend my sincere gratitude to our supersonic webmasters at Whitefish Web Design: Amber L, and Andi K, and the wizard behind the curtain, Shane. You guys are the best.
Until next time, happy knitting,
