Oh, Sharon and her silly rules!

Last night and this morning, Sharon had to come up with two new rules for the yarn shop (right now we only have two: keep on most of your clothing, and no sleeping in the shop).

But last night, due to me having a massive allergy attack during work, wherein one of our fabulous and lovely customers had to drive me to the Emergency Room - after stabbing me with my Epi Pen - and one of our fantastic and talented teachers stayed, finished her class, and then locked up the store for us... Sharon had to come up with two new rules.

- If you have an allergy attack during work hours and need to be stabbed with an Epi Pen, you should not then tell all the customers that you're fine and will be finishing your shift; instead you should go directly to the ER.
- When you get out of the ER in the middle of the night, your first stop should not then be back to the yarn store so that you can finish the closing procedures. You should go home, because hello, YOU HAVE BEEN IN THE ER.

Oh, Sharon and her silly rules! Next thing you know she'll be telling me I need to swatch for my sweaters (hee hee hee).

But the point of this post isn't really as much to laugh about rules, or tell you all that I have allergies that attack me out of the blue. The point of this post is to tell you all how humbled and grateful that we are by the wonderful people who have, in six short months, made our shop a community. You build us up and give us so much; your time when you come to sit and craft with us for a while, your tea and coffee that you supply us with to share with others, your delicious home-made cookies and breads; the gift of your hearts and friendship. We wonder sometimes if other yarn store owners feel this way, if others have such giving, honest, caring people who grace their yarn stores. We hope so, for each and every one of you is a gift, and we'd hate to think that we're hogging the menu (so to speak). So thank you, all of you. And mostly today, thank Kristin and Jen, who (as I said on my personal blog) completely rocked taking care of me and taking care of our shop, and well… clearly all those dropped stitches well prepare a knitter for crisis circumstances, because I was never nervous. Unwell, but not nervous. I am so making them some mid-season Chex Mix, and I totally want them both on my side when the revolution comes.
