Holy Crap. This made my week! I am in the Florida Knitters group on Ravelry, and I rarely read it. (I rarely read most of the groups to which I'm linked, unless a topic catches my eye.) Anyway, someone was asking about yarn shops in Orlando, and people named the two I know - and then someone linked to The Knitting Patch. And it's, oh, 15 minutes from my house, and hot damn, it looks fabulous. A later post explained that it is the new location of a shop that was in Mt. Dora, a shop I'd heard of but never visited, because Mt. Dora is a good 40 minutes away and the only time I could get there is Saturdays, and my Saturdays were/are full of all sorts of "keeping the house from falling in" fun stuff during their hours. But if it's 15 minutes away, it's an easy drive-by after the usual Saturday errands. I fear I will love it too much.
Look at the pictures of the shop! If it lives up to the website, I will be a regular fixture there. I'm like a kid waiting for Christmas morning this week - a new LYS that carries All My Favorite Stuff! I haven't been this excited since the first time I walked into Yarn Paradise in Asheville. I'll file a report this weekend. I promise I won't also file bankruptcy.
