the Young ones
The lovely owner Kate is everything you could want in a yarn store owner - friendly, helpful, interested. When i met her last year i can honestly say she was my first yarn store experience which did not leave me humiliated and cranky - i may be 21 but this does not mean i can only knit garter stitch on huge needles. It is refreshing to be served by someone who appreciates that i know what i want and am willing to pay money for it and that treating me like an imbecile is not good business sense. for the LYS owners in Canberra - get it into your heads! WE WILL GIVE YOU MONEY.
next, somewhat poorer, we made our way to JD's Jam Factory for the Young version of SnB. (here with proof of purchases !) Sharon's mother started the group up when she realised how much fun Sharon was having and these ladies are a scream! i have completely forgotten most names and in the interests of fairness i think i will add them only when i know all of them. And please! this is not because they were not a memorable bunch of ladies! I'm just apalling at remembering names (and i had a bit of a headeache which made it harder to concentrate).
a few more (just to prove we were all there ;)
On the way home we bought cherries at an orchard (i got some cherry port too, yeehaaaaaa!) and stopped in Harden at Which Craft for devonshire tea and plotted drum-carder theft (i ask you, what good is it to have one ON DISPLAY but out of normal line of vision??? i NEED one, and that's just cruel!)
and on monday i finished my pembrokeshire pathways socks. (out of context? its the memory issue, im telling you!)
and its bloody hot and my poor zucchinis keep wilting :(
the heat-stricken, poor and cherry-bloated
