One of the things I really like about fabric stores is that everyone there is making something. Our local JoAnn store is great: the employees are all in love with my son and the other customers are friendly.
Last weekend as Little Red and I were purchasing skeins of black yarn for my latest project another customer curiously asked me what I was making.
“A baby sweater.” I replied.
She was surprised.
“Oh, like with a skull and crossbones?” she asked thinking I was being wild and going all out.
“No, a lovely black cardigan with pink trim.”
I left her still speechless when we exited the store.
