My new Trillium Mitts pattern is named for my friend Beverly's LYS in Morristown, NJ. I'm a huge fan of Beverly's store and local yarn stores in general. So along with Trillium yarns, I'd like to dedicate this pattern to all local yarn stores and the owners, sales people, and teachers who make them so special.
At a local yarn store you can spend a happy afternoon chatting with like-minded knitters about your shared passion. You can admire gorgeous colors, textures and that new shipment from your favorite yarn brand in person. At yarn stores you can increase your knitting skills -- through formal classes, or by chatting with other knitters. The people who work in yarn stores pick up dropped stitches, help you figure out what yarn will work best for that pattern you're just dying to knit, and are thrilled to admire a new project freshly off your needles. If you love your LYS, be sure to show them by spending a portion of your yarn budget there. Without the support of knitters, your LYS may not be there the next time you need that set of size 7 needles so you can cast on for your dream sweater right away.
