The Double Ewe and The Yarnery

On Tuesday, wonderful Louise took me yarn shopping. The Twin Cities has a deliciously large quantity of yarn shops and I’ve been in very few of them.

Our first stop was the Double Ewe yarn shop out in Circle Pines, Minnesota. Kelly, the proprietor, is as friendly and helpful as you could ask, and her yarn store is full of Good Things.

While there, I purchased my first set of double-pointed needles. I also purchased so

me other yarn to start making a pair of spiral socks– more about those later.

Next we went to The Yarnery over on Grand Avenue in St. Paul. This LYS is in an old house so it has rooms of yarn! At this store I was able to locate a few of the yarns that DSC00494.jpgmy talented knitting friends in Singapore are wishing for. (More about that in a different post.)  I also purchased a chibi.
