Austin LYS RAVE! - Hill Country Weavers
Yesterday I spent an HOUR at Hill Country Weavers in Austin, Texas! I went to look for some yarn for a project, with no idea what I wanted except white fingering weight. One of the ladies took me around the whole store suggesting yarns and letting me pet them, gave me her opinions on what would look good (I brought in the pattern). Then someone else took me to the other building they use for teaching spinning and weaving classes, where she had some backstock that she let me see. Then they handed me some needles and let me sit and knit up a swatch of 3 yarns to see which one I wanted! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that store!
