The Hanks Question of the Week

The question this week is primarily for the crocheters.

Sometimes, we get asked two questions in the shop that I don't really know how to answer... "where is your crochet yarn?" and "do you have your crochet patterns separate?". The reason I'm not sure how to answer those is because all of our patterns are grouped together; and unless you're looking for very fine crochet thread (which, sadly, we don't have right now anyway), what yarn is there to separate...?

So I put the question to you, as I could never get much beyond the HDC (let alone figure out "front post" from "back post")... when you go to a yarn shop, what do you want? Do you want crochet patterns put into the books along with the knitting patterns, so that [for example] all of the shawl patterns are together... all of the baby blanket patterns are together...? Or is it easier to have a book of only crochet patterns so that you don't have to sift through everything...? What makes you happiest when you go into a store heavily weighted towards knitters (besides us telling you that we love crocheters, because hey, it's all fiber!)?
