A New Old LYS

I am now officially spoiled.

Before, I envied those who lived mere steps from a nice friendly neighborhood LYS.
Now I did live close to a shop which sold yarn, but the customer service there left much to be desired. (Remember the Seinfeld episode where they went to get soup? Enough said)
If I wanted to go visit a yarn shop and just hang out for a while, I would have to travel anywhere from 20 - 45 minutes by either car or public transit.

But lo and behold, the other day I noticed a thread on Ravelry about that nearby Yarn Shop having new management!

It turns out that the "new" Passionknit is a super friendly place. And slowly but surely it is filling up with lovely yarns.

Wall of Bliss
As you can see, they are one delivery away from completing their Wall of Bliss!

Word is that there will be a Monday night SnB starting some time this fall - and loads of classes too. I can hardly wait!!

I have really got to start making some headway on stash reduction!

How is there going to be stash *reduction* when a new yarn store moves into the neighbourhood?

Yeah, how's your stash reduction coming along? Mine has been a bit... slow ever since I discovered that there are 2 yarn stores within a 30 minute walk form our house.

That is such great news! That shop is too cute to suffer at the hands of such sourpusses.

BTW - glad you're back to blogging! Maybe I should follow your lead?

My closest LYS closed earlier this year. My favorite one is 1.3 miles from the office, and there's another great [new] one on the long-way-home from work. The one in the town where I used to live is owned by a woman we refer to as "She Who Must Not Be Named". She has never been rude to *me*, but she has been awful to several of my friends, so she hasn't gotten any of my business since I found out.

What is "stash reduction?" Shaving your upper lip? A guy named Stanislav on a diet? Please explain this exotic terminology.

Ah! I remember the old Passionknit far too well! Is it really much better? I'll have to visit next I'm in TO.

How's the shoulder?
