RECENTLY ON TOL:

As a Local Yarn Shop owner for over 25 years I have to agree with the statements about knitting building community. It is true that the internet plays an active roll in today's knitting world, but it will never be able to replace the feeling one gets when one enters a yarn shop.
Knitter's are now able to buy everything they need either on-line or through a catalog, but will always value the help, the knowledge and the experience they recieve at an LYS. Knitting has become the way today's techies reconnect with their creative side, feel the wonder and joy of creating something real and participate in face to face relationships with people who share their passion. Never discount the Local Yarn Shop as old fashioned or past its time- it will always be the center of the knitting community wherever it is located.
