Yay! I'm so glad you are all willing to ride along to my cousin's shop. I think you'll enjoy it. It's so cozy, and feels like you're going to your grandma's house when you pull up. Then, when you go inside, you just want to say, "Ah!!!" because of the comfy chairs up front to sit in and knit. THEN, you see the display of Malabrigo and Debbie Bliss yarns, and you want to melt.
I checked with my cousin, and she said that she will start carrying Koigu this summer. But she doesn't have it now. Sorry, Bear.
It won't be long though!
My cousin will not be there on Saturday, so you won't get to meet her. But the shop will be open, and someone will be there for us. I can't wait!!!
Wear your comfy jeans, and good walking shoes, so we can enjoy the day looking at yarn, knitting and talking. I think it's going to turn out to be a GREAT day!
Here's the outline for the day:
1:00 - Meet at B&N, browse magazines and books
1:30 - Have coffee or tea at Starbucks and talk!
1:45 - Drive to Cottage Yarn
2:15 - Browse the yarn store!!!
Sit and knit in the comfy chairs at the yarn store
??? - Drive back to B&N when everyone is ready to go
We'll be driving past Michaels, Hobby Lobby, and AC Moore each way, so if you guys want to do some "discount" yarn shopping, just say the word!
I can't wait!
