On Saturday I did something every knitter loves to do. I went on a yarn crawl with my friends. You’re jealous, aren’t you?
Sharon and Martha and I met at The Wool Basket in Duxbury at 10. This is Martha’s local yarn shop and it’s a great one. The owner is super friendly and they have a truly wonderful selection of yarn. We spent some time (and some money) and then we headed on for our next destination . . .
And that was The Wool Patch in Middleboro. The owner there, Miriam, is terrific. She is helpful and runs a great little shop. Her yarn selection is also very good but totally different than the Duxbury shop. Once again we spent some time and some money and then we headed to . . . .
Lunch. And for lunch we had sushi at my favorite sushi restaurant, Sushi Joy in Plymouth. We shared a few different rolls and they were all fantastic. So were the Mai Tais. Stuffed and happy we left there and went to . . .
Fancie Purls in Plymouth. Our friend Dinah, who we had hoped would join us but couldn’t make it, told us about this shop a few months ago and I’ve been anxious to go there and check it out. What an adorable shop! Once again we met a great owner, Ann, and once again we spent time and money.
At the end of the day I came home with some Berrocco Ultra Alpaca for mittens, some Noro Silk Garden for an entrelac scarf, and some silk/wool for a small shawl.
And I also came home with fantastic memories of a day with friends. Laughter, yarn, and sushi. What more could a knitter want on a Saturday?
