There's a new local yarn store in town. Or at least new to me.  And it just might be the thing I'm looking for.

Background:  This week is my first week unemployed.  I have a lot of free time.  A lot.  What do I do with it?  Well, up until now I've been doing some light knitting, cleaning, and watching some of the worst movies ever on Showtime/HBO.  For example, yesterday I stumbled across "Rock of Ages" about halfway through.  Soon after I started watching, Alec Baldwin (in a longish wig) and Russell Brand started singing, as a love song, the old hit "I Can't Fight This Feeling Anymore".  To each other.  I knew then that this movie had nowhere to go but up.  Neither of those actors can sing worth crap.  That still didn't stop me from watching the rest of it.  Sadly.  OK, back to the knitting story...

So today I went to lunch with another friend who doesn't have a job, and we stopped at the new knitting store afterward.  It was super tiny, but felt just right.  There were two women there working on projects (one the owner, one a customer she taught to knit).  I told her about the layoff and having all this extra time now with nothing to do, and she basically demanded I go there and knit with them from now on.  I'm already planning on going tomorrow.  It's a nice walk from my place, they were both very nice, and she offers wine later in the day.  That's 3 for 3.  I'm very excited.

Sounds like the perfect way to spend an afternoon. My LYS is tiny. People go there to knit but it's a bit too crammed for me. Not that I have the time... LOL.

Hey I think this place is even smaller than yours. This place is the size of our living room, basically.
