As most of you know I was back in Philadelphia and Bethesda this past week visiting with family. I still managed to sneak in a couple of shop tours though. My family was so patient with me.
First stop was a store called Twist in New Hope, PA. It is a delightful store and the sales person on staff was great. This shop offered a variety of nice yarns to choose from. Some I have not seen locally so it was a real treat. The shop also offers spinning and weaving equipment. The little back room was filled with a choice of spinning wheels and a floor loom to play with. There was a nice are to sit and knit also. I would love to be in this shop on a nice fall day to just sit and knit or spin.
For this shop, you walk up a flight of stairs to reach the store. Painted on the wall as you walk up are a few cats chasing a ball of yarn down the stairs. Again, the ladies on staff were friendly and helpful. There was a lovely table set up so you could just sit down and start knitting away.
And, of course, the loot from my trip!
