First tag-time

Purlpower tagged everyone who wants to be tagged, so I felt like it's time for my first tag.

1)What's your favorite LYS?:
The most nearby LYS, which is called "Sabines Handarbeitsshop".

2)What about it do you like most?:
Though the lady is a bit older, she treats me like a knitter, not like a young one(had a not so good experience at another shop). She's nice and has almost every yarn you might want!
The prices are mostly not displayed, but she looks them up and makes suggestions(without being asked!) about cheaper substitutes(she knows I'm a student with a budget). She also offers to put aside some balls, so I can pay as I've got money and still begin knitting a project.
She orders almost everything should it not be available in the shop and she tells you about the newst mags and yarns in a friendly conversational way(in contrast to some places).

3)What is your 2nd favorite?:
I don't really have another LYS where I shop regularly. Most of the puchases not from LYS #1 are from ebay or an online shop.

4)What would you improve about it to make it a tie with your first?:

5)What's the last thing your bought at your #1 LYS?
Much to much as they have a sale at the month of may with 25% off. One ball of cotton sockyarn in red to knit lace patterned socks for me. 350g black cotton yarn for my mum's motherday present(btw. she got a gift coupon and could chose what I should make her), a tank top. I also ordered 350g of Schachenmayr "Avior" to knit a sweater for me.

6)Who's Next?: Anybody who wants to!

More yarn porn and project pics tomorrow!

Glad you took up the tag Javede, I really enjoy reading about other people's lys, your's sounds like it is run by a very nice lady, if I ever find myself in your neck of the woods I shall surely be paying her a visit.
