It was so great to visit one of my very favorite LYS, Yarn Quest and Mary Hoffman, the kind, generous owner. I walked in and Mary immediately recognized me. (I guess I've bought a little yarn there.) She even remembered what I purchased the last time I was there, that I make Survivor Shawls and Knitting: A Love Story. She relayed a story from years ago. I came into Yarn Quest to buy yarn for my beloved Survival Shawls. It was very obvious that I was into something as I bought one skein of many pink yarns. She said she was impressed that I bought only the best and most beautiful for my Survival Shawls when some people don't want to spend much when they make prayer shawls. I was impressed she remembered.
I was on a mission when I entered Yarn Quest, and Yarn Quest came through.
I just got a call from Yarn Quest. Last weekend was the Traverse Area Yarn Shop Hop. I was the winner of Yarn Quest's big prize! That is four times I have won yarn crawl prizes, twice in North Carolina and twice in Michigan. I can't wait to get it! If I go to enough yarn crawls, maybe it will fill my unquenched desire for UDY!
