I don’t think I mentioned this, but I am vacationing at the Chautauqua Institution in New York for two weeks (well, a week and a half at this point). We are staying with some family friends, who have bravely invited us back this year. Imagine my surprise when one of our hosts told me that Chautauqua now has a yarn shop!
I made a trip down to St. Elmo Fiber, expecting… I don’t know. A few skeins of Plymouth Encore, maybe. After all, Chautauqua is fairly small, and only gets substantial shopping traffic in the summers. Instead, I found a wide range of beautiful, striking yarns, from Cascade to Noro. Oh joy! Oh rapture!
I have yet to buy anything, though, as I left my wallet at the house on purpose. I intend to buy a cast-iron teapot and warmer for my dorm room when I return home, so I’m trying to limit my purchases between then and now.
Make sure to drop by if you are in Chautauqua – it’s located in the basement of the St. Elmo building. Just follow the pretty colors and the sheen of sari ribbon.
