Is there anything more fun than visiting new yarn stores??? I personally detest shopping for clothes, shoes, etc. But shopping for yarn… what’s not to like!! There is no trying on and having to look at those extra pounds.
So I am thankful that despite southern Florida’s heat, there is a yarn store in Naples, Castle Creek Fiber Studio, and a yarn store in Fort Meyer, Hooked On Ewe. The Naples store is a 25 minute drive; the Fort Meyer store is a 45 minute drive. I go weekly to the knit night the Naples store. I don’t expect to visit the Fort Meyer store often since it’s pretty far away. I met a Cincinnati knitting friend who is snowbirding in Fort Meyer there before grabbing lunch.
I did see a yarn that I now feel I really need to get. 😆 So in 3 weeks when we take our Cincinnati friends that are spending Feb with us back to the Punta Gorda airport, I’m going to make Tom stop so I can buy the yarn to make a summer top. Gee, one more project to add to my 2021 project plan.😜. My friend is already making the top on display so I feel like I have someone that might help me with questions.
South Florida has turned out to be good for this northern knitter. I’m enjoying the opportunities these LYSs are providing.
