Normally we are open Sunday and Monday, but with the Holiday; we decided to close both days.

We have a regular group of about 14 knitters that drop in for social knitting at any given time.

Yesterday, they realized that they would'nt be able to come in an knit for 4 days[we are closed Tuesdays]-It threw them into a panic.

They we begging us,"Please,Please, Please-we promise we won't touch anything, we'll be good, we just want to come in and knit-How will we last without out our Knit fix for 4 days? Can't you give us the key?"

Of course they were joking, but it sure says something about knitters obsessions![:00]

I thought about it for a minute and a half. KL

There's a nice LYS in Walsenburg. She has a sign on the door that lists her hours. Underneath that, it says "For Yarn Emergencies, call ..." and it gives her home phone number. "Yarn emergencies" -- now there is a woman who really understands knitters. [:00] Only in a small town...
Happy New Year --

I ran out of...
It's the wrong dye lot...
I have to cast on for the Kumquat shawl immediately but have nothing in my stash that's kumquat color...
The needles are the wrong size...
I ran out of stitch markers...
DH just gave me $50 to buy some yarn...

Honestly, Sandra, you've never had one of these? But then, you OWN a yarn store...

Or, I've had the kind of bad day that only sock knitting can cure.

The only bush I trust is my own.

AS so many of our knitters were/are beginners- it's kinda like:

I dropped a stitch 4 rows back
Am I adding a new yarn correctly
This looks weird- what is wrong
What does PSSO mean
Etc..

Their security blankie is in the wash-so to speak![:00] KL

there are days when I just have to go to a yarn shop. I pull up a chair in the back room where the wools and blends are and stare at the colors and imagine what I want to make. I need something but I dont know what it is YET! When i leave the store with the little bag and something new in it all those stresses leave and a moment of peace. Like a dip in a cool pool. Not sure if thats an emergency but it is sure what the doc orders for me!
