I am so far behind! This should have been posted last Saturday, which was Local Yarn Store day. I was in Brattleboro to knit with a friend, and of course we had to go to the Local Yarn Store: Handknits, on Elliot Street. I bought a better needle for my current project (two at a time on one circular needle socks) and my friend bought yarn for a couple of projects, and needles. Across the street is an art gallery; the llama in the window caught my eye (Look! Fiber!), and then the meerkats next to it.
Saturday, March 26: I left Connecticut fairly early, and headed to Brattleboro, Vermont, to hang out with Quaker Knitting Goddesses for the day. We did a brief field trip to the local yarn shop (Handknits – a not very imaginative name!); this flying saucer is on the side of an art gallery across the street. I hadn’t brought enough yarn to work on the dog sweater, so I started a pair of socks with yarn I did have.
