Today I am making a pair with "good" wool. The good stuff comes from the "good" yarn shops. Susan and I have found a new yarn shop to frequent, thanks to my dental hygienist who is an avid knitter. Wool Revival is a quaint little spot in Edmonton. The owner does not keep regular hours so it is best to go mid-day in hopes of finding her open. She also only takes cash and hand writes the bill. Upon entering, she can be found sitting in a comfy chair in the middle of the store, knitting, of course. There is often other ladies sitting along side knitting away. It is like taking a step back in time. The only downfall is the disorganization of the store. The front counter is one foot deep in "stuff". The clutter dips in the middle where the payment process is done. I do have to admit that my first visit haunted me a bit. I had an overwhelming desire to go back and ask if I could spend a week there organizing. hee hee The best part about this shop is the low price of the yarn. About 1/3 less than it's competitor.
Happy Scrapping!! Jen :)
