My favorite local yarn store is going out of business. This makes me sad. I went over today and did serious damage to my pocketbook. Sweater quantities of yarn for me, and money in the pocket of the owner - there are always bills to pay, even when a business closes.
I got a little carried away, and clearly I'm not stash busting (and I'm wondering where I'm going to put it all . . . ) but I will really miss My Sister's Knits. It was a great neighborhood store. I was always inspired every time I visited. But, times are hard for many - and most think of yarn as a luxury item, whereas I think of it as the air that I breathe. I'm a fiber artist - yarn is necessary to the creative process - and I got a lot of process here . . . ;-)
