uproar on FB makes me share good story....

So Knitty had something in their cafe press site that was a very cute design it said "I share needles". When Amy singer posted that particular product on Facebook to do some advertising, A whole grip of people got upset.... So she had deleted the product all together. Since it was only offensive since these sniveling idiots waited until she placed in on FB and it has been in the cafe press site for years....means to me these complainers are cheap bastards that won't go spend money on her cute stuff anyways. This makes me sad.

Why? Well because it reminds me of this store....I find knitting so addictive and also expensive I had to find an alternative source for my Addi turbo knitting needles.  I was working on a secret project that was very much pushing my experience level. I need multiple size needles and I wanted lace tips. Well I just fell across a guy advertising on Ravelry that his store never got a chance to open and he had some inventory he needed to move.....

Sounding fishy yet....

Hold on it gets better.

So I private messaged him and we arranged to meet up in a public setting better yet in the parking lot to a yarn store, during the middle of the day, right before his kids were going to get out of school. Yup you heard me I arranged to buy (knitting) needles in a parking lot out of some guys car.... I was good and brought exact change and my friend ( I can't remember if it was Tana or Shawna). We pulled into the parking lot and my cell phone rang, He said "Are you driving a silver car with paw prints on it?" I answer "yes", he says "cool- I'm in the minivan with the 'my kid is student of the month stickers'..."

I got two sets of Addi Lace for $24 dollars, which was a score...

So I buy needles in parking lots.....and no I don't share needles... Addi's are too expensive to share.
