Blogland Friends: Just as Great in Person
Guess who I meet today?? Michelle from InsanKnitty - she is a great lady and we had a great time here in Boston (despite the heat). We first hit up Woolcott and Company in Cambridge. This is a great store filled with lots of wonderful yarns, especially lovely sock yarns! Next we headed back into downtown Boston and had lunch at a lovely little Panini place.
After lunch we headed to Newbury Yarns (I for some reason have never even noticed this store, although I had walked by it 100's of times). We could only quickly glance around due to the power being out, but it was a great store which I plan to head back to as soon as I need to purchase more yarn.
Next we hit Needle Point and Knitting. It has a super small selection, but it was fun to see what they had. We had a lovely walk through the public gardens and the Boston Common to our finally yarn destination Windsor Button. This is a great store because it has a bit of everything. From the most expensive to the durable everyday yarns and of course it has lots and lots of buttons.
It was a great day and a pleasure to meet Michelle in person. She made this lovely cupcake dishcloth for me - isn't it too cute! Thank you so much for the cloth, it is the perfect pattern and the perfect for me color! It will match my up coming tats quite well I think. Thank you Michelle for a great day. I'm so glad that we got to get together!!!
