I went to a LYS that I had no idea was around the corner yesterday, and again today with some friends. Pretty much just as I expected...an explosion of sundry (and overpriced) yarns. They had a great selection of needles, too, so I bought some Lantern Moon size 7s.
The thing is, the yarn really is too expensive...I can (and have) ordered the same brands online for much less. I'd love to be a LYS supporter, and my friends and I do plan on taking classes there/attending social knitting nights, but I can't justify overpaying for yarn (presumably the main reason for patronizing the shop)... Has anyone else found this to be the case with their LYSs?
