Annie posted on her blog about a new store about to open right in my neck of the woods, in Nyack, NY!! Knitting Nation is only like 3 miles from my house! So I went on down there and met the co-owners and sat around knitting with them. I cannot WAIT for the store to be officially open! I am hoping to work some part time hours there once they're up and running. The owners are awesome and there were a few of their friends hanging out and knitting, too, and everyone was already having a wonderful time. They have the same ideal that I have for a yarn shop as a community-building business with customers, teachers, owners, etc sharing their love of craft and their lives with eachother.
I was so happy to be there I was late for work! I am going back on Monday (and perhaps tomorrow!), if only to just chill with the women again!
