Yarn & Co, Easton MD and Frivolous Fibers, St Michaels MD

Maria called Saturday morning asking about going to the yarn shop in Easton.  About two hours later, we were finally ready to go.  Leslie came too.  We were not impressed, but Maria did buy a few things.   There was  nothing exciting there.  The owner was not helpful or friendly.  She was more interested in her dog and her knitting.  The was another woman there giving a lesson.  I thought it was strange that she only wanted the student to do things her way–that there was no other way to do it.  Another thing that bothered me was when we asked about other shops, she said there were no others in the area.

Fifteen minutes later, we were at Frivolous Fibers in St. Michael’s.  What a difference eight  miles makes.  In the front of the shop there are various items from local artisans.  I bought some of the soap and I was interested in some salt and pepper shakers.  The back 2/3’s was filled with yarn.  And was it ever eye candy!!  We had a grand time.  It was almost 5PM by the time we left.  It was hard to figure out at first who were the customers ans who were the workers.  Everyone was having such a good time.  Maria went crazy and had a really hard time making up her mind.  I also found it interesting that they had a very large supply of Blue Heron yarns and none in Easton where it is made.

Sunday, I made myself a camera case.   I need to get my revised notes on this and update the page.   Gotta go!
