A Lovely Yarn Shop Along the Way
On one of our days in New Hampshire we drove up to Portland ME to the Knitwit Yarn Shop. There is something about entering a yarn store and feeling like you are home :) This shop was lovely and the people were so very nice and friendly! As you can see wall to wall yarn (we should all decorate our houses like this). The top photo is a wall of Quince and Co which I love. I enjoyed seeing all of their yarn in person and getting to feel each skein.
How is it that in a yarn store you can strike up a conversation with a stranger and then be friends upon leaving? That is what my experience was like in this little store. Knitting as a hobby brings so many people together in the strangest ways. I think it helps that I will talk to just about anybody-this used to drive my mother up a wall.
The above photo is a little crooked but it's the only one. Right before I snapped this I ALMOST dropped my camera. It was like a near death experience. I was so flustered that I snapped and disregarded the preview. I also vowed to always put the strap around my neck, epiphanies are very motivating to change my behavior.
I did buy yarn, how could you doubt? On the left is Shibui Knits Staccato and on the right is Quince and Co Tern. Both are destined to be a sweater one day. The green yarn was from the clearance bin-how lucky was I???
So what I thought was a quick 20 minute shopping spree ended up being an hour visit according to my husband who was timing me. Time flies when you are having fun in a knit shop.
