With Mom and Grandma in town for a much anticipated visit, sister in law Cindee and I decided to treat our two favorite knitters to a trip to our super cool local yarn store, Blazing Needles. Our entire family of women: Mom, Grandma, Cindee, myself and my four daughters descended upon the store in force. There’s no mistaking the location because a super sized ball of yarn and needles sculpture graces the front yard of this charming little cottage shop.
We spent a wonderful hour wandering around, admiring the prettily displayed samples and the beautiful yarn selection.
Mom and Grandma went on and on about how they had quite enough yarn and didn’t need not one single skein more, but I think the wall of Madelinetosh wore them down and before long, we found them by the swift, waiting while their purchases were wound into neat little cakes.
There’s apparently an impromptu shawl knitalong in the offing that was planned between the two of them as they passed various skeins between them for inspection and exclaimed over the richness of the various color combinations.
