There. I've said it.
I had been looking forward to going to Colorful Stitches in the Berkshires for a long time. I extricated myself from the family for a precious hour during our trip and headed to downtown Lenox. I entered that store and it was even more beautiful and fabulous than I had imagined. Unlike other yarn stores I've been to, they actually even had crochet books and hooks for sale, but I was still overtaken by feelings of inferiority because I CAN'T KNIT. The salespeople were very friendly but I couldn't shake the feeling that I am still unworthy of such incredible yarn. Maybe I'll stick with Lion Brand Yarn, which I can buy at those huge, impersonal craft stores, until I feel more confident, or at least until I master casting on.
