I’m not bragging. I’m just saying.
Also lucky for me? Loopy is located right out by Lowe’s! And also Designer Shoe Warehouse, but Lowe’s is what attracts The Guy. So now I am all ‘heck to the yeah, I'll go to Lowe’s with you!’
Heh heh heh…
My first visit, a scant two days after she opened her doors, I went for a look-see, and also needing something. Yes…I needed a pair of 16” size 6 circular needles. Mine disappeared, and I do not know how. I do not loan them, and I keep my stuff pretty organized, really. Those of you who know me in real life may or may not be surprised at that. Perhaps the animals are learning to knit in the round on the sly…hats for the house elves, maybe.
I thought it was humorous, but in a good way, that I was greeted at the door by the store help with 'is this your first time in?' They had been open two days!! Now I am a devoted knitter, but really...
So there I was looking at The Wall of Circulars, and there were exactly only one brand of sz 6 16” circulars in stock. I am not the only one missing these needles, I am thinking. Whatever…I sprung for the Addis, my only choice. I needed them.
I also bought some wooden sock blockers, in a small size, with little lamby-kins. Pretty cutey pie, and also useful!
My second visit was on The Grand Opening, upon which I discovered the sale shelf. Seriously, though…like I need more yarn. And seriously again…that did not stop me from buying a skein of sock yarn. It was The Grand Opening, after all.
In my little city, we have no dearth of bike shops, and we are very fortunate to have plenty of choices in our yarn shops, each offering their own specialty.
Not bragging…just saying.
