Knitting on the Road

Not much knitting happening while on our Northeast Holiday. We've seen yarn shops from time to time -- Bee's Yarn, Sweaters & Candy in Bar Harbor, ME, for instance -- but they've all been closed.

Today, I got lost trying to find a laundromat in Stowe, VT, and looked up to see I was in front of Stowe Fabric & Yarn. The nice proprietor pointed me in the right direction, and after I got my load started, I went back to visit before closing. They had a nice selection of yarns, including some locally grown alpaca and Romney wool. I could sit on that porch and knit all day...

Oops. The dryer beckons.


  1. That looks like a lovely shop. I've been to Stowe and found it charming - but that was in my pre-knitting days. Breakfast buffet at the Inn! Adorable public library! A hiking trail we still refer to as The Ass Kicker!

  2. How can alpaca be locally grown in Vermont?

    Glad you're having a lovely time. Cliffy ....
