I posted last week about starting my first sweater, and going on vacation. Had to tell you all what happened! I looked up the LYS in the town I was going to be vacationing in, just in case I ran into a problem while I was away. Of course, I did- and on sunday, when the store was closed!! I was frustrated, but made do for the evening and knitted a dishcloth instead. On Monday morning, I excitedly found my way to the yarn store. When I walked in, I asked the woman there if she could help me out with my question. She was so rude!!! It all ended up okay, but I was so disappointed with the experience. She practically yelled at me, and was very brusque. She told me that she charged for the “service I was requesting”, which I understand- she has a business in a vacation town, and probably spends a good part of her time helping desperate vacationing knitters like me, but the manner in which she went about it was disheartening. By the time I left, she was nicer, but I still had a bad feeling about it. And my snag was the most simple problem ever!! I’m just not an experienced enough knitter to be able to spot the simple things yet. arghhhhhhhhh!!!
Well, I got past my snag, and am on my way with the sweater. Any other problems I come to now, I’m posting here!!!
