When last I left you, it was Friday morning. I’d visited A Verb for Keeping Warm the night before and just sort of casually mentioned that I was about to head out to another yarn shop later that morning. The second yarn shop was ImagiKnit, and it was a delight.
Now, first things first, they had a wee stack of Curls sitting out on the table. And I know it’s horribly tacky to admit it, but I confess that does always make me awfully happy to see that in a yarn shop. I secretly suspect anyone else who writes books gets a little thrill when they see their work hanging out in shops, so I’ll try not to feel too bad about the little happy dance seeing them always causes.
But of course the real show stopper was the yarn. Piles and piles of yarn, rooms full of the stuff! If Verb was spare and streamlined, ImagiKnit was delightfully exuberant.
Those are actually pretty much my favorite ways to organize a yarn shop. Either have only a tiny handful of lines and have them all be awesome, or have oodles and oodles of yarn and let me go on a treasure hunt. I totally got to do both on this trip.
And yes, yes I did find treasures. The yarn report will happen shortly, as soon as everything is out of the suitcase and I’m caught up enough on life to find my camera and computer again. You’ll be proud, I actually bought yarn with colors (shocking, I know, but true).
