I FOUND A NEW LYS!!!
And its less than a MILE from my house!

Its called Chix With Stix, its in Forest Park, IL on Madison.

They've only been open since September 14th.

They carry Berroco, Cascade, Cherry Tree Hill, Lorna's Laces, Alchemy, Muench, Anny Blatt, and another brand that starts with a C but is not Crystal Palace or Classic Elite. They carry Clovers, Addis, Denises and (what are the gorgeous wood needles that start with L??) Not a whole lot of notions.

CUTE place, owned by a YOUNG woman (in her 30's), comfy couches in the front, REALLY nice vibe in there....their first class schedule will be mailed out soon, and I fully plan to talk to the owner about our next Illinois get-together after the one in October!

*ENVY*

Have I mentioned that my LYS is 30 minutes away? And the next closest is 40 mins away. The next closest to that is 50 MILES away?

That's all I have to say about that.

I know. It's sad.

If you feel so bad for me, you could buy me some yarn from your totally nearby LYS. That'll make me feel better.

You lucky, lucky, woman! You might as well go ahead and get a part time evening job there...you know you'll be there all the time, so might as well get paid for it!

Maybe the store needs some greeters???

People love well behaved dogs hanging out in stores. (I guess that could just be "me" not "people")

i LOVE dogs in stores. Love going to pet smart where people get to bring their dogs to visit. i love dogs and don't get to live with any since i am gone 14 hours a day. really like snugglin' up on other people's dogs a lot.
