Amy, I live in Michigan. My daughter lives in Brookline Ma. I fly out as often as i can. Usually during the summer months that way i can stay on the Island for awhile. My daughter and i walk for hours around Nantucket looking in amazement at the History and Architecture of homes, etc.
My daughter told me today there is a knit shop right around the corner from where she lives. That will be the first place i visit when i go back.
One of the stores on Nantucket is Claire Murray. My Daughter purchased a Yarn Basket for me there. www.clairemurray.com
