A few weeks ago, I picked up my knitting needles, and started knitting a hat. I knitted, knitted. and knitted some more and finally it turned into a slightly oversized hat that is pretty adorable. It still needs three buttons on the flap or I would show a picture of it here. But trust me, it's cute.
I had bought the pattern at the local yarn store that has tons of yarn (many deliciously soft). Throughout the shelves within my price range. The best part of the experience was that they were so helpful, helping me locate the correct needles, the perfect yarn and everything at the lowest price. It was a good experience all around, and it made me think a little bit about my mémoire and my ongoing interest in customer experience. By not trying to oversell me and give me honest good intruction, I can honestly say that that they won my loyalty.
So in 2010, I can honestly say I will be visiting HIll Country Weavers a lot more. I have a pattern that I've been wanting to try and it involves me getting more needles and yarn. I'm thinking a nice cocoa color for this one as I don't really like the yarn they used. I'm motivated and excited for fun new knits.
