Is it really what you think it is ?
Wed went over to the LYS – Cast On Cottage – to get the remaining goodies for the HSK swap. In the process found this huge basket of knitted goodness that was really lovely. I wasn’t sure if I was looking at scarf examples or works from students. Honestly its not displayed well as to what it is.
Flat Feet – is a new concept in hand painted yarn for sock knitting. The site explains it more eloquently with added photos. Essentially a flat knitted bat is hand painted – you unravel as you knit. I loved the thought. Still not ready to go there.
SO – back to my original statement. Was not displayed well at LYS I didn’t get what this basket full of flats was for. Too expensive. As much as I love my LYS’s sometimes the prices are just ridiculous. I have for the most part, found yarn on-line that matches my needs or pattern specification and even with shipping will spend 30% less than what I would buying local. While I am an advocate of supporting local artist store owners and commerce.. please tell me why on earth I would spend that much more ? 5-10% ok fine – I can have it here have it now not wait 5 days for delivery. That’s absolutely valid. 30%.. screw that I will wait the 5 dam days and get more shit !
