Okay, so I’ve been putting off finding the LYS because I knew I’d spend too much money. I had to go pick up the husband for lunch (doofus forgot his and left the car at the shop with his key to his stand-by lunch food). I had heard about one not too far from him so I went there. The lady was SUPER friendly. She played with the kids and helped me pick out yarn for my booga. She was showing me all sorts of things to do with it too. I could’ve stayed there all day chatting and petting her yarn. She also has Addis…I restrained myself. (I knew if I bought one set, I’d be back to buy one of each size and I really can’t afford that!)
So. Last week I got a call from my son’s new preschool teacher. Apparently she runs a shop that’s next to a LYS. So I went there. It’s only about 10 minutes from my house so it’s much closer. (The one by my husband is more like 20 minutes from home!) But, they were not friendly. They have all these bags finished around the shop with a tag stating the name of the bag. I liked a couple of them, but had no idea where to find the pattern or how much yarn to buy for it. I got no help whatsoever so I didn’t buy anything. If one person had bothered to talk to me rather than just give me dirty looks because I have kids I may have spent some money! (They have the old fashion wooden floors that make a ton of noise. The kids, 3 & 1, had a blast stomping their feet and running around making noise.) Needless to say, next time I’m in the mood for more yarn, I’m heading down to the other store, even if it does cost me more money and more gas! (There’s a cookie store right around the corner too!)
So, here’s my yarn. It’s Cascade 220 and I think the coordinating one is called Bobbles or something. She had one that was made with this carried along in part of it and it was really cool.
