I went to the wildest yarn shop today! My husband and I have been exploring the area and checking out all the local yarn shops we can find. This place is by far the most interesting shop I have ever seen. I couldn't believe my eyes when I walked in. The shop was packed with yarn, and I mean PACKED with yarn. It is a very small shop to begin with, I guess it is about 10' x 20', and there is just a small path through the mounds of yarn that goes to the back of the store. Two people are unable to walk side by side on this path. The yarn is in clear bags and piled all over the floor. I have never seen anything like it. I had to wait outside the shop until the two people shopping came out so I could actually make it to the back. The place literally looks like someone backed a dump truck full of yarn up to the door and just let it all pour in. I had the strongest urge just to dive into the pile. It seems to me that the owner has a serious yarn addiction and just keeps buying and buying reguardless if anyone is buying it from her or not. I told my husband it is like those old ladies you hear about on the news that have eighty or more cats in a small house. Well At least she is addicted to yarn and not cats. There really isn't any harm in it unless she drowns in it or gets buried. The next time I go there I am going to bring a camara. Hopefully she'll let me take a picture so you can check it out.
