In Which the Pirate Goes to Yarn Stores.
The funniest thing happened yesterday! On my way home from work, I thought to myself, “Self, you should stop at With Yarn In Front, that new LYS you haven’t been to yet. See what they’ve got!” And then I thought, “Rats, I’m not exactly sure how to get there. Ah well, I’ll go another time.” Just as I’d decided to go straight home, I looked over at the car next to me. It had big magnetic signs on its doors saying “With Yarn In Front.” I was driving next to the shop owner!
Needless to say, I followed her to the shop (and I’m glad I did, because if I had guessed which way to turn when I got off the highway, I would have guessed wrong). What a neat little place! Lots of yarn, spinning wheels, looms, roving… I will definitely be going back there. They have a good selection of sock yarn; I’m surprised that I was able to resist buying even one skein.
Speaking of yarn stores, I have a pilgrimage to WEBS planned for tomorrow. I was very careful to make a list of exactly what I want, to try to avoid any really impulsive purchases. My budget is dictated by a pre-paid Visa card, and I won’t go overboard. Really. I mean it!
Sounds like it was your lucky day! Looks like a cool shop, I hope to check it out soon:D
Good thing she was going to the shop and not home. How funny would it have been to accidentally stalk an LYSO to her home?!? xD
