On Saturday I took a short trip up the road to Portland. Winter still lingers, but at least it wasn't stormy. The day was chilly with a stiff wind, and the sun was shining.
My destination was KnitWit Yarn Shop, and my mission was to serve up a yarn tasting. Suzie, the shop owner, has created a warm, welcoming space for knitters. KnitWit carries a variety of yarn, including a wide selection of Quince & Co.
I set up a display on the large table in the back.
The yarn tasting featured Bertha, Paula and Lillian with skeins available for knitting. It was a delightful afternoon with people trying on sample garments and pondering different colorways. It's always fun to help people move out of their color comfort zones.
Before I knew it, it was time to close up shop. It was a great way to spend an afternoon, and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting some of the regulars at KnitWit.
Suzie believes in supporting local fiber people. Her shop carries yarn from several New England-based businesses, and the staff is fun and helpful. If your travels take you to Portland, be sure to include a stop at KnitWit.
