So Lorelai and I ventured out to our new yarn shop -
The Yarn Basket, 288 East Main St. Branford, CT 203-208-3288 (no website yet)
I was given quite a warm welcome and shown around - it's a great space, bright and open. Yarns are arranged by weight. They carry Sirdar, Berocco, Brown Sheep, Noro, Debbie Bliss, Plymouth, Encore, ella rae. I did support the local business and bought some berocco inca gold and noro silk garden (projects to be determined). They do have a "yarn club" card - spend $200 and get $20 off your next purchase. Very friendly. They also have needles and patterns. They were stocking the shelves still and more is on the way!
We also went to Madison Wool - love that shop! She had cascade 220 on sale for $5 - thought about picking up more for a sweater or vest, but it was too hot for wool. So I picked up some Cascade cotton - a hat or vest for Lorelai maybe....
How did it get to be August already??
