I love to knit. Something I love almost as much as knitting is yarn shops. I just can’t get enough of yarn shops. I love the smell and feel of the yarn. I like to compare kinds and colors. I enjoy planning my next set of knitting projects. And I love knitting needles. And notions – row counters, markers, etc. Yeah. Pretty much the whole yarn/knitting thing.
In the last few years I’ve dreamed about owning a yarn shop. I would love to spend my days playing with yarn, knitting, teaching others to knit, etc.
So, PWM and I are moving from the dreaming phase to the planning phase. PWM crochets and is learning to knit since I can’t be counted on to not have migraines ;-) Not only that, he has more of the entrepreneurial spirit than I have. And he enjoys yarn – although he’s not obsessed about it like I am. Both kids also think it’s a pretty cool idea, even though we told them that the plan would be to buy a downtown building and live in part and make a shop out of the other part.
So far, we’ve ordered a booklet from The National NeedleArts Association. And we’ve made a bunch of lists. We’re not in a big hurry.
Pray for us! And come buy yarn from us – one of these days.
