I did slink off to the LYS Purls the Yarn Studio this weekend. Surprisingly enough I only bough 1 pair of needles. I wanted to buy yarn for a baby afghan, but I couldn't justify $75 in yarn for a baby blanket!
The store does have several nice seating areas and a table with chairs (where they teach classes). They have some beautiful yarn, needles and it has a nice ambiance to it.
