Yesterday I stopped into the very small, very dingy LYS. My friend works there and I just stopped in to say hello. I commented that while I enjoyed visiting her, the shop left a lot to be desired. You cannot ever find enough of any yarn to make a complete sweater, throw, etc. My friend then showed me the “BACK ROOM”. Oh, my God, I died and went to heaven.
The shop owner(who never works in the shop) has told the employees not to put out any new yarn until the customers buy the old stuff. Please understand, this old yarn came with the shop when she bought it 8 years ago. There are bags of yarn in the BACK ROOM that she ordered, some five years ago, some five months ago.
I gathered all the self control I could muster and told my friend I would look over my patterns this week-end and return next week to shop the BACK ROOM. God help my Visa card!!
I think I just like saying THE BACK ROOM. It makes me happy!
