At 10:30 this morning, a line of eager knitters crowded the front door of Fashion Knit, fighting to be the first to get inside. An employee (me) poked her head outside and said sheepishly, “It’s going to be about fifteen more minutes everyone.”
“FIFTEEN MINUTES!” “Come on!” “Really??”
Had they known the wonders we were preparing for them out the back door, they would gladly have waited fifty. We piled the items — labeled and in plastic bags — on tables and in bins outside as fast as we could. Finally, it was as good as it was going to get, and we unlocked the door. A reverential silence fell as our guests entered single-file and made a beeline for the back door, almost as if it were Christmas morning and they couldn’t wait to see what Santa had brought.
In all seriousness, it’s pretty cool seeing how happy folks are finding a yarn they’ve had their eye on for a while, or rediscovering a discontinued classic. There are books, yarn winders, bags, even a knitting machine out there, waiting for a new home. For those of you who need to find a present for a non-knitter fast, some of our older sample garments and accessories are now on sale. The yarn garage will continue until Monday, but don’t wait too long!
