So yesterday instead of lunch I went to visit a LYS close to work. I have to take another day to visit a different one that is also in my area. I got a give it to them. It's a great little place but its filled with lots of goodies. I was like a kid in a candy store. I had a budget of what I could spend yesterday but I'm counting my pennies for payday to see what goodies I can get. They have lots of great fibbers to for spinning. I might start spinning soon not quite on a wheel budget yet but maybe by hand with a spindle. Man time flies when you are having fun. My hour lunch seemed like minutes when I was in the store. I did get some new circular needles and asked for them to put some a side. I love my wood needles but I'm so hard on them that I needed some metal ones that would not snag. She gave a great deal on some addi turbo lace needles. I'm in love with my new needles and they are very affordable. Well till next time my fellow fiber artist and knitters.

If you do not have a local yarn store I know that they ship here is their web page they are very friendly and help full.

There just isn't any running in for a this or that and running back out of the LYS - I've tried. I've decided it's because you are compelled to honor the fiber. You have to pick it up, feel it, read the lable, discuss it with proprieter. Make a pile of possiblities, edit the pile, re-edit the pile, more discussion, make a final decision.... maybe.... No....
There's no making quick work of a yarn store, only the soulless can do that.

I've done it; but I felt dirty afterwards....there is something wrong about it.

MMario - I'm not divorced from reality - we're having a trial separation

That's because you have a soul.

It's very easy to max out the credit card when you just can't edit and re-edit the possibilities pile. Sometimes you just have to shrug your shoulders and hand over the card. Then again, I'm of the female persuasion and isn't there some rumour about us not being able to make decisions?
