String Theory trip

In community challenges, events on June 17, 2014 at 6:30 am

I forget the exact date, but early on during the sale in June, I visited String Theory. But not to fill my stash with beautiful yarns I don’t get to use regularly (though I wanted to), but initially just to check things out. I was there 1 hour (I remember because I was feeding the meter).

I felt a bit overwhelmed because I didn’t know what to get. And obviously, limited help in decision making. I mean, really, you cannot not go to a store closeout yarn sale and not buy anything! Seriously.

They had a fair amount of yarn there…Shibui, Debbie Bliss and Ella Rae, to name a few; I decided on a skein of luxury Madelinetosh Tosh Sock and a Knit Scene magazine I did not recall being in my possession.

I’m not sure what I’ll make with this sock yarn…maybe socks?!lol I do know that it can be used to make other things, so I’ll weigh all my options.

The sale continues and the store will close 6.28.14. Just remember, cash or check only, but if you forget, a Chase bank is nearby.

Another one bites the dust

The only yarn shop in Westchester County (at least before the Tapanzee Bridge) is closing.
A lot of shops are dropping like flies.  This just goes to show how much more we need to be in support of our LYS. I’m guilty too.I did not shop here much; I’m not sure if I can buy anything, but I’ll look and see.
This is the email I received today.
It is with a heavy heart that I announce String Theory will be closing its doors permanently on June 30th, 2014The last 3 years have been a great ride but the combination of online competitive pricing and declining sales have made it impossible to keep the store open.
