I was at a yarn shop yesterday. I know, shocking, right?

I asked one of the women who work there about a needle. She told me they're no longer carrying them. Fair enough. The owner came over and started haranguing me about the needles being from China, etc. I then mentioned another brand of needle that I use frequently, and she said "They're so cheap because they're sourced in China." Now mind you, I understand having convictions and such, and I respect her choice to support her convictions by not carrying the needles that she finds troublesome. However, I've tried to search for supporting information concerning some of her allegations, and I can't find any. That doesn't automatically mean it doesn't exist, just that it's not readily accessible.

However, after all that, she stated that she only uses bamboo needles. Ummmmm, hello? Unless you sourced the bamboo locally and made the needles yourself, I suspect that they were probably made in China. Pot. Kettle. Black, anyone?

Anyway, I probably won't go back, because in addition to being harangued, they were following me around the place like they thought I was going to steal something. WTF?
