The emails I get from the yarn store (Particularly “That Yarn Store” in Eagle Rock) are so like the emails I get from Indiegrrl.com or the Folk Alliance. The same DIY ethic, the same sense of community, the same vibe of respectful competition to come up with cool, unusual ideas – and particularly the idea that you are doing something timeless, something a little weird, something tactile in an increasingly technical world. Every time I’m knitting in public, someone comes up and asks what I’m making, then tells me about their project or their memories of the afghan their grandmother made them. It’s very, very cool.
