A LYS right around the corner!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I’m trying to start a stitch and bitch on campus. Today was our first meeting. Ok, well, there was just me and another woman, but that’s fine. It’s a start.

We talked about all sorts of things, including where we buy our “supplies.” She buys most of her fibers on eBay. I’ve bought somethings on eBay, but I really like to touch things before I make a purchase. I told her that I shop at Knitting Arts over in Saratoga. She was shocked! She said, why do you go that far? I told her the store had a really nice atmosphere, and a awesome selection of yarns. She asked me why I didn’t shop at the Knitting Room…

I’ve never heard of the Knitting Room! So I did what every sane knitter would do! I asked her where it was. Do you know that LYS is almost walking distance from my new house?!? I am so excited! I can’t wait to have a really local place to go knit and chat! I might even take a class!

Ok, so I’m excited and scared. I’m scared because I’m in total save mode with the new house. I am scared to death to go to the yarn store because I know what I do in the yarn store. I spend money. Lots of money. I don’t have the expendable income I used to.

But, now, I don’t have to go run all the way to Saratoga when I need supplies! That is such a good thing!

  1. That is awesome! Good for you for doing this! See it paid off! wink

  2. If you google “a month of softies”, you should find a nice community that might interest you. And those that shop ebay can sell via ebay… you make nice things, you’d be surprised what folks will pay for them…. maybe enough to hit the yarn store more often smile

    Have a lovely tomorrow!

  3. I completely understand your feelings… If my LYS was opened later and more often on weekends, I would never have food to EAT! smile
