I'm glad you had fun Jenelle! I hope you get to go again really soon.

AAAAHHHhhhh the first YS. Mine was a little shop in Havard square in 1990 (that doesn't exist anymore). I bought TONS of Lambs Pride bulky and I still have some in my stash. Welcome to the club Jenelle (what's yer Blog address?)

Had my 1st YS experience today. Fell in love with Brown Sheep Company and Lamb's Pride yarns. Somehow I resisted making a purchase. Guess 'cause I wasn't sure how much I may want of one dye lot. Will be checking my pattern books for the next project and will definitely return. Fortunately, the YS is close by and just opened recently...so it should be there when I return. Actually I was looking for a Berroco pattern booklet which they did not have...didn't have many patterns at all...mostly yarn, but as I said the shop is new.

While I was there, I put in a good word for Knittinghelp.com

I stopped by a new YS that I hadn't visited before this afternoon, and it was great! There's a modest little LYS about 3 minutes from my house (thank god I don't drive by it on my way home from work, my paychecks would never make it home!), but I made the longer trek to check this other one out and was very happy I did. TONS of sock yarns, Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride and Prairie Silk, and buckets of Manos del Uruguay!

I picked up some Raspberry Lamb's Pride for the hoodie I'm fixin' to start as soon as I finish DH's socks.

Oh my child you are so modest! :D

I did not go to a realy ys until I was in my 20s either. I had to move to "the big town" first. But I remember walking in and being so overwhelmed by everything I saw. And I imagined every woman in there was an acomplished fiber artist. I was so tongue tied and humbled (because I was a beginner with no dexterity) that it took me until just this year to go back. (thats more years than I want to admit to)

I am obviously more confident now than I was then. Now I walk in and am so amazed by how friendly everyone is. No question is stupid, no one has made me feel as though I were wasting their time. I even got a lesson on how to spin with a drop spindle. Lovely ladies all!
