I don't know how I missed the memo from earlier this year about Hilltop Yarn on the top of Queen Anne closing in March of this year!! Like I said earlier, I was barely looking at anything knitting then... :(.
But, I received an email yesterday about the sister store Hilltop East shuttering. I had been wondering how it was doing these days and it makes sense now after going there last week looking for a US8 and them having low stock on needles. Sounds like though, they will be having a sale this week and then continue to sell online. Hopefullly that will work out for them. I shudder to think about how expen$ive it must be to lease in downtown Bellevue. I knew someone who worked at Neimans in Bellevue and she said that only one pair of mens' shoes sold in the mens' department ALL week. yikes. Wonder how much longer they'll be around.
In better news, I tried on my stripey sweater and lo and behold, so far so good! I'm now heading into the decreases for the waist! Go go noro! Must get coffee!
