On our way home from visiting my folks and cleaning up at the new place I decided to take the more scenic route home. I had noticed a few weeks earlier a little yarn shop tucked away in a dying shopping complex and decided to check it out. It was called The Yarn Nook
, but I will call it Nirvana. Cute shop, lots of yarn, great owner. I asked her how long the shop had been at that location and she said close to 2 years. I don't travel that road too often, obviously, or this post would have been written 2 years ago! In all my fiber dork glory I asked for her permission to take pictures of her shop and she happily agreed. I was very impressed with the selection of yarns. There was more Noro than I have ever seen anywhere before. I petted it of course, but did purchase any. Oh man I could have burned a hole in my credit card for sure. Linda, the owner, said that she does have a website
and she will gladly ship to anywhere. The shop is about 15 minutes from where I live now, and will be an hour from where we're moving. Just my luck to finally find a local yarn store only to be moving away from it within 3 weeks!
So, if you're ever in the western portion of North Carolina, here's another Local Yarn Shop for you to peruse....
The Yarn Nook
1261 Smoky Park Hwy.
Candler, NC 28715
Shop: (828) 665-0610
Fax: (828) 665-0610
Cell: (828) 230-5557
I've already packed away all my yarn and crocheting supplies and haven't really thought about any future projects for a while now. I wanted to support the shop so I bought 3 skeins of Berroco Comfort Sock in the 1813 Southland colorway.
I'm either too dumb or too impatient to make socks so this sock yarn will be used to make a Boteh scarf
. Unlike a lot of sock yarns out there this is the softest by far. I may have to conquer my fears and make some socks with this because I imagine it would feel so comfy.
