Today on a little excursion to check out some local yarn shops, I found an intriguing LYS called Simply Socks Yarn Company, established eight years ago, first as an online-only business, then in August 2011, they restored a 3,500 square-foot 1940s post office in Ft. Wayne, Indiana into a new storefront.
The shop houses more than five tons of sock weight yarn! When I walked in, I was overwhelmed at the exciting selection. I honestly didn’t know where to start, but here’s what finally tickled my fancy. What shall I make?
I’m the kind of knitter that buys the yarn first and then I let the skein “talk to me.” What about you? Do you usually buy a skein of yarn AFTER you have a pattern in mind? Or, do you let the yarn inspire you, and then find a pattern later? Leave your comment here!
