I thought I might "wax" poetic here for a second....
I have been knitting Christmas presents for my fam lately and even though I have been using yarn from the shop (hoping they will not destroy it before I can put on display for a while,lol) it occurred to me that I have yarn I would love to use in certain things I have made. I mean yarn from my stash. Even though people act like yarn has a "sell by" date, that it goes bad, or rotten or spoils....not true. I have some yarn that I have been keeping for just the right thing....for more years than I care to disclose here (wink, wink). If you are like me, and I know you know who you are, no, no, Peggy, don't raise your hand! LOL If you have yarn that you have been keeping for just the right thing, I urge you to use Ravelry, find a pattern for just that yarn. Come in and see if we have a yarn that might compliment it around the collar or cuffs, or whatever. We would love to help you pick a pattern for just that purpose!!!
I am a pretty practical person and I know I have stash yarn, (and this is not it, ROTFL) so I want to let you know I have no problem whatsoever with anyone bringing in ANY YARN or ANY PATTERN. I want to help you with your knitting needs, so don't worry about any "rules" we may have in place for that.....there are none. Please feel free to come in and sit and knit on anything you want!!! It does not have to be purchased here, and I, or Ashley will try to help you with any knitting questions you have about any thing you bring in. Please remember though, that it takes a little time for us to delve right in to a pattern that we have not knit....so be patient with us...;)
Have a wonderfully magical holiday season!!!!
