First YS experience
Can you remember the first time you walked into a yarn store? Do you remember that thrill and excitement you had because you never knew what to expect?

I had that today. My first EVER LYS experience, and it was.... unexplainable. I just wanted to take everything home because of all the yarn they had there that felt so amazing to touch. I could tell this was no walmart experience either... Ohh they even had Fiber Trends patterns!!

I ended up walking out of there with a size 9 16" circular, and Plymouth Encore yarn in a lime green color. I have to say that was the best ever.

Another thing... I understand why everyone here buys Addi-Turbos online too $15 for just one pair!



I'll be posting pictures in my blog soon too.

My first LYS experience was rather frightening, but my second was awesome... I'm gonna go with that one and say so cool. I'm impressed you didn't buy more!!! :rofling:

Yeah, Jenelle! I have a tiny problem with my favorite LYS - they take plastic! Take my advice... leave the plastic at home, stick with your cash and do not listen to the siren song of the yarn.

"Take me home with you! Take me home, Jenelle! You know you want to!"

Congrats on the LYS experience and NO, it ain't no Wal-Mart!

Jenelle has one advantage over us in the spending-too-much-on-yarn department. She's got about 5 years before she can get a credit card of her own. She also has her mom to keep her in check. Maybe I should adopt a sensible mom. :thinking:

Mine takes plastic, but not Discover, which is what I generally use if charge anything. So that definitely keeps me under control when I go there. But the other LYS I go to...well, that's a different story.

Yay Janelle!! Try not to blow your college money on yarn, ok?

Yay, Jenelle! Welcome to the next step in our shared obsession! I definitely remember my first LYS experience. I had no idea anything like it existed. I had been a Hobby Lobby and Michael's girl until I happened to drive by Village Wools and stop in on a whim. What a wonderful discovery! :drooling:

Bah! That will never work! I collect teddy bears and whenever i showed mom a new bear i got she said "did you really NEED another bear?"

ummm who said it is about need?

now that i knit whenever we go shopping she wants to take me to her stitch shop. I feel bad because they don't have as much good yarn as my LYS and i am generally not that interested. Soooo i tell her i really don't need any new yarn. (Yep....you see this coming)

"Who says it is about need?"

and she is serious!

:rollseyes:
