VISITING THE OLD YARN SHOP IN OLD WILLIAMSBURG, VIRGINIA

All natural yarns, dyed with natural colors. For a knitter, probably the place to be!
For a visitor, interesting, but just for looking.

The Yarn Shoppe in Williamsburg, August 2012.

      • LOL !! There are a lot of stories about having to count every stitch, etc., that tend to make it more difficult to learn to knit — once you’ve learned, then there are different stitches to worry about, etc. In reality, it is just a matter of learning a few finger coordinations, but that can be a difficult learning curve!

  1. Lots of the women I’ve met here spin and knit. Some even raise their own sheep and alpacas. My neighbor knits all the time as therapy for her arthritis and that results in some beautiful things. I’m just an appreciator.

    • I’ve been selling — or giving away — cameras. I have more than I need and just leaving them to sit in bags, growing old, doesn’t seem sensible. With tech, stuff DOES get old and rather quickly. On the other hand, I feel badly about it. It’s not that I don’t love the cameras. I really do. I just don’t have enough time in a day to use them all.

    • It is part of the “museum” section of Old Williamsburg and yes, it’s very interesting. They show you not only the wool, but how they fashion it. It wasn’t my thing, but I can really see how interesting it would have been for anyone who uses wool to knit of weave. And a beautiful little shop from the 1800s.
