There! I just set the scene for you: Knit 'N Purl, social knitting, amazing yarn and Molly. What more could I want!
December 28, Kathy and I went to Knit 'N Purl, leaving Dick and Ken in the car. Why wives ever take husbands into a yarn shop, I will never know. They just don't get it! They say things like, "You don't really need that, do you." like need has anything to do with it. It's about the thrill of it, the love for it, the excitement. They might also say, "But what are you going to make from it?" like anybody really knows that unless you have a specific pattern you are wanting yarn for. I think all of that yabbering interrupts the Zen of a LYS. Well, any way Kathy and I went in. Immediately I heard "Well, look who's here." It wasn't Molly it was Martina the new owner. Even without the friendly face and lyrical voice of Molly, I felt totally welcome. Kathy and I explored to our hearts content. I came away with. . .
On January 15. I walked in and there were people knitting at the big table.
So you see how something can be both exhilarating and soothing. I got my fix of both. I told Dick I would be at social knitting for about an hour which with travel time would be about 2 1/2 hours. Well, I was gone twice that. Time has no meaning in a LYS. It's like you're floating in a parallel universe. While there I met two great women from Ohio (almost neighbors). Hi, Vivian and Robin. I hope you enjoy Knitting: A Love Story. I also hope to see you at Knit 'N Purl again.
Of course, I bought during this trip.
Now I want to show you want made me shout "EUREKA!" when I piled all of the Knit 'N Purl yarn purchases together.
