Add This to the List of Terrible Things

The closest yarn store is closing down. The Shuttle Shop in Warsaw, Indiana will be closing its doors. Please pause for a moment while I weep uncontrollably.

I bought my first sock yarn at The Shuttle Shop. Kathy taught me to felt, showed me the Magic Loop, and informed me that I was doing my yarn overs backwards when I couldn't figure out why my shawl didn't look like the sample.

The Shuttle Shop was where Mom picked up the wool for my favorite Fiddlehead Mittens, which I wear every winter because they are the best. Mom knitted me a lovely cashmere sweater with yarn from the Shuttle Shop, the sweater I wore to my grandmother's funeral because it felt like a hug and I really needed one then.

The Shuttle Shop was where both Mom and I learned to love to knit again. And it is a good place, and I will miss it very, very much.
