Today I went to a yarn store that I go to every now and then. It’s about 20 minutes away. I love this store. It is jam packed with thousands and thousands of skeins of yarn. So much yarn that I easily get lost in there. No worries for me though, the owner of the store is always there and willing to help. She’s a sweet older lady who, somehow, remembers the cost of every skein of yarn when I go to pay. No computers for her. She hand writes the receipts and tallies them up on a small hand held calculator. Today I had a chance to visit with her. She showed me a lot of pieces that she’s worked on and shared some of her patterns with me. Nothing like being mentored by someone who loves what they do.
Now I must go and put all my yarns and new pattern knowledge to good use!
