Fueled by the scent of rubber shavings....

I am a new knitter.  I love knitting things, although I don't have the patience for DPNs - although I have bee learning how to use magic loop.  Anyhow, I digress.  I know I don't look like either target demographic; the young and hip or the middle-aged with platinum credit card.  I'm somewhere in the middle - and it doesn't help that I'm a mess when I venture into areas that I'm not comfortable with.

I have money - and I'm not willing to spend it on mohair yarn when I have other pressing concerns like paying for university instead!  I am however, willing to pay for the cascade 220 yarn - it is pretty and very cute and the colors are very bright.  (I love the dark magenta/purple they have - in fact, I'm knitting armwarmers with them.)

I will never attend at class at this lys - because it's expensive, plus I learn better when I'm not under pressure.  You, dear fellow customer, REPEATEDLY telling me to join a class later this month doesn't help.  I rather eat ten scorpions than join a class - especially when it's designed to help sell yarn!  (It was a sweater class.)

Also, please don't laugh at me when I say that I will never create a sweater.  It's just not economical with natural fibers.  I will however, create smaller pieces - I especially came in today to pick up some cascade yarn for a scarf and some armwarmers - a luxe treat for me.

Also, Noro is wonderful imported stuff.  The colorway is awesome, and makes me want to drool all over it.  However, don't ask me to read it just because I look "Asian".  I'm Chinese, and personally, I can barely read my own name, even if it were in intarsia in mohair.  The stuff is Japanese - NOT CHINESE.  (Dumbass.)

No love for the customers of this LYS,

Lol.  Thank you.  *bows*

I was pretty pissed off when I wrote this - but everything still stands with an addition of a bullet point - patience is needed for knitting, and I'm not the most patient of people.  I tend to want things immediately, or to pick up weird things....
