But it’s been almost four months since my last post and there are a few little changes in WordPress which is making it difficult for me to post images.  Now I ask, what’s the point of posting about your creations if there are no images to support your work?  Not that I’ve been super productive on the knitting end, but I have managed to finish a couple of projects and have another one started. 

Stash build up is minimal.  The only addition to my yarn collection in the past 4 months were 3 skeins of Lion Brand’s Superwash which I found for $1.50 a piece at Big Lots.  Over a month ago I visited the Yarn Barn and not only did I get the scare of my life (there were flyers everywhere announcing the store was closing April 15) but I also walked out with the most current back issues of Knitting Vogue for $0.10 each.  What a deal!!!

Last week I decided to stop by the Yarn Barn again, figuring I’d find all sorts of great discounts due to the store’s upcoming closure.  I was expecting to see all sorts of “Going Out of Business” signs as I approached the building but that didn’t happen.  The store front’s display did look skimpy compared to the past so I figured they’d liquidated most of their inventory.  Inside, the cubbys which were at one time bursting with all types of yarn were quite bare at this point.  The curious thing was that prices hadn’t been slashed.  Upon further investigation, the store associates revealed the shop had been bought out and would not be closing after all.  That was great news, even though I didn’t find the deals of the century and have no idea where the Yarn Barn will be relocating to. 

‘Til next time!  Happy knitting and stash building to all.
