It's a Collection!
We're all very creative when it comes to storing yarn. We've heard everything here at the shop: shelves, closets, dressers, bins and one of our favorites, the trunk of a knitter's car because as she says, no one looks in there. Why do we feel we need to hide our yarn? Why do we feel guilty if we have yarn waiting in the wings to be used for a future project?
Here at the shop most of our staff like to call their yarns-in-residence a collection. People collect stamps and coins and no one expects them to mail the stamps or spend the coins! Golfers buys tons of golf balls expecting to lose a bunch of them and no one chides them for that. As one of our staff members says, yarn is an opportunity - you need to buy it when you see it. The right project will come along! So enjoy your yarn collection! It's bold and beautiful - just like you!
