new LYS!

so..class gets out, and my train doesn't leave for an hour...so i wander two blocks south on State St (That Great Street (tm) ) and take a gander at Loopy Yarns. they are still kinda setting things up, putting in some finishing touches, but it's great. the prices are FOB. 220 for 6:45, fixation for $5.45, lorna's laces shepard sock for $9.75...they have lots of Cascade, Berroco, Lorna (tons of LL! all kinds!) and many other odds and ends...even the Addis seemed to be decently priced. so i would definitely go back. without my wallet. we should plan a knitty meetup, Mitten and everyone else :D so yeah...this came home with me:

Isn't it a great LYS? Very reasonably priced, but too dangerous to the wallet to either work, live, or go to school nearby!

When I get my lazy butt and go to Chicago to see my friend, I'm kidnapping you and you'll be showing my way to that fabulous new LYS!
