I received an email yesterday that made my week. I consider the store to be a "getaway place", but it's always nice to hear that others feel that way too!
Love the yarn I bought. The name of the free pattern on Ravelry is Inside Outside, not Inside Out. It's my "knit one below", ie learn a new stitch scarf. Thanks for the good company and yarn therapy at lunch, I was much more effective (and happy) in the afternoon back at work.
(For the record, she purchased two skeins in different colorways of our new Schaefer 'Helene' yarn. That would make me pretty darn happy too!)
