A Month to Say Good-bye...

I mentioned a few days ago that my favorite LYS is closing. She's not leaving us for economic reasons, but instead for matters of the heart. Off on adventures with the man she loves, and who, pray tell, can fault her for that? Surely not I.

Others have mentioned that it's a bittersweet event that's taking place now at our beloved Knitter's Knook. A store-closing sale.

It is, indeed, difficult to do. We love Becky so much and the store became a huge part of our lives in a fairly short period of time. It was a bit hard to visit Friday after work, knowing that, while I was about to help her remove stock from her shelves (and stash enhancement is such a wonderful, fun event), I wouldn't be seeing her nearly as often and that would happen very soon. She'll be back now and again, and will keep in touch, via Ravelry. Still...it's just so darned sad to say good-bye...But I did help her with lowering her inventory and I'll be back for more (that Log Cabin blanket needs a bit more yarn, but I'm not quite sure how much yet!).

Two Addi Lace circulars (size 1 and size 8) were added to my collection


And then there was the enhancement of stash - these lovelies had to come home with me, and once they were ON the desk to be photoed? I realized my propensity towards compatible shades:
Three skeins of violet Kidlin for Lilith from Louet (yes, I bought the pattern, too); a skein of Cascade's Heritage Handpaint Sock yarn; two cakes of Zephyr laceweight in Peacock and one in Plum. I also picked up another skein of Green Mountain Spinnery's Mountain Mohair to finish my Habitat hat...it took a bit more than I'd hoped.

I've finished Habitat and it's blocking now. I'll show you that tomorrow.

Ooh, excellent stash enhancement, even if it is for a sad reason (I think I'd have a fit if my LYS closed!). Maybe it's time for you to open a yarn store? ;)

I'm so sorry your LYS is closing. It sounds like such a special place. At least you got some treasures!

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
