I have the worst luck ! My LYS closed about 3yrs ago and then another LYS opened that was actually closer to the house and had a wonderful group of KnitNite ladies and now 2yrs after opening it is closing !! I'm haven't used all the yarn I bought when the last store when out of business so I'm not sure I can talk my hubby into letting my buy more stash this time either - it's like a double whammy.
It must be an epidemic around here. The Knitter's Cottage in Fredericksburg closed earlier this year, and I heard a couple weeks ago that Knit Happens in Old Town Alexandria is closing, also.
