Bittersweet, Goodbye to my favorite LYS!


So for the past 8 yrs. my mom's friend Holly has owned a yarn shop. She has been crucial to the girls in my family. She has taught us new techniques, encouraged us, and quite frankly-- I'm a yarn snob because of her. You see, I can't stand any yarn that isn't pure wool, cashmere, or alpaca. My fingers cringe and bemoan the possibility of using acryllic or any other yucky man made concoction.
Alas, a tragedy! She is closing! Well, once she called my mom and sister (who live close to the shop) they rushed up there to buy out the good stuff. Here's what I got. I can't even say how much of a discount she gave me. I would NEVER go and buy this amount of yarn. They cost anywhere from $7-15 PER SKEIN! So, after finding out about our tax refund, I had to get a lifetime supply of scrumptious yarn that I wouldn't get otherwise. So a huge part of me is devastated that the shop won't be there every time I go to Ohio, but at least I have this stash to ease the pain a little bit!
