lol, greenegirl! My Michaels & JoAnn's were the same -- soo annoying! I'm going to try to get to JoAnn's today (since it's closer) and to Michaels sometime this week for the cotton-ease. That's awesome that your boss is joining in! I think I'm going to forward a link to our blog to my local yarn store, Lily Lane Knits.
Maybe some ladies there will want to join in. :)
