Yarn Overload

You are probably asking about Sisters of the Wool, the shop I found in Westport following the disaster in Tiverton! So I will bring you up to date.

Daughter no 1 and I took the grandson to the park along with hubby and after we entered an aladdin’s cave of yarn!!! There was so much to look at it was like being in a sweet shop!

This was how I came out

I know you say not much! But I couldn’t resist them, no projects in mind but took advantage of Malabrigio, Ella Rae and Madeleine Tosh.

 

 

So with all this yarn did I do any knitting? Completed projects between playing with grandson? Well between naps –

 

 

Sea of Dreams baby blanket for daughter no 2’s friend. And I couldn’t resist using one of the yarns I had bought at Sisters of the Wool so daughter no 1 is now the proud owner of

a scalloped shawl by Malabrigio from their sock yarn beautiful colours and much admired

 

 

 

Hopes Dashed

Its been a while since I put thoughts to blogging. I have been visiting daughter no 1 and Grandson in Rhode Island the smallest state in the USA and in preparation I Googled yarn shops in the vicinity of Little Compton and YES there was one 2 miles away which seemed to have exciting yarns I was all set and sent the address for Daughter no 1 to suss out as it was near grandson’s pre school.

Horrors of Horrors there was no wool shop! So I did some investigating. It turned out that only an online service was available and no shop to visit as there was some disagreement re signage with the planning department. My hopes were dashed seemed like I wouldn’t get the chance to visit a yarn shop. But when one door closes another always opens and on our second day when we were exploring we found a shop in the same area, it held promise, but as I walked through the door I knew this was not the one.  The yarn was terrible and we left immediately.

Do not despair said daughter no 1 there is a shop close by in Wesport MA how far is that I asked, not far was the reply its about 10 miles and it is on the same road as the play park where I take Grandson. Great I said I’ll have a look next time we go.
