On my way home from the cottage I decided to stop at every store that sold yarn on my way home. It took me all day to get home but it was lots of fun!
Stop One: This is the upstairs of the grocery store near the cottage. They don't have a lot of yarn but if the unthinkable happens, your knitting bag doesn't get packed for your vacation, they have needles and a nice little selection of sock yarn and yarns for you to make a hat or scarf.
Stop Two: This dollar store advertises yarn on their sign. I was pleasantly surprised by what I found inside, 2 aisles of yarn. They don't sell it for a dollar - it's priced the same as everywhere else but they had a good selection of acrylic yarns.
The best part of this store was the three bins of Briggs and Little wool hidden away on the bottom shelf!
Stop Three: Well this wasn't really a stop, it was a drive by. This is a ladies home and she wasn't open when I went by. The sign says Natural Knitters Depot. It looks like an interesting spot.
Stop Four: Riverside Yarns was a very nice shop. Great selection of yarns, books and accessories. She had some hand dyed yarn by a local dyer that was beautiful and scarf kits that I hadn't seen anywhere else. I'm glad I found this shop, I'll be back!
Stop Five: This little shop is in a touristy village and they are closed Monday and Tuesdays. I was coming home on Tuesday :( but I did take a peek in the window at the yarn.
Stop Six: You just can't drive through Listowel and not stop at the Spinrite Outlet, you just can't. Or at least I can't!
They had some fun chunky yarn in the seconds bin that would make super warm scarves. It's hard to resist yarn that works out to be around $1 a ball.
Stop Seven: MacPherson Crafts was the last stop. I love their building. They have a great selections of Patons yarns.
Including Patons Kroy sock yarn.
What a great way to spend a day; looking at beautiful yarns and being inspired for future projects.
