I just love New England!After a month of my last trip to New Hampshire I went back! This time I took a group of knitter to visit yarn shops and woolen Mills all over. This trip was actually inspired by two friends of mine: Beth and Julie. They were most kind to share the trip and give me lots of hints of what to do/visit. So about a year ago I start telling my students about it. One of them, Deb, got really excited about the idea and offered a week of her time share in Lake Winnepesauke, NH to make this dream come true. Well, it was not hard at all to get people interested in going…and there we went!
Four of us from Columbus, OH started on a Sunday arriving in Boston Logan Airport. There we met the another knitter from Indiana. We drove to the first yarn shop: Yarns and Fiber Studio!
We had dinner in a lovely restaurant next door, in a house from the 1700’s. Food was delicious!
This picture shows my friends at the first stop we made at the Wool Tour in New Hampshire: The Fiber Studio. A nice shop with a good selection and also featuring local hand dyed yarn. The shopping began… Our next stop there were several local farmers that raise their animals, obtain their fiber, spin, dye and work with it in several ways.
We hit 4 of the 5 stops and in each one of them we saw beautiful yarns, animals, old houses, stories from spinners, knitters, crocheters, etc. So much inspiration and this was only the first day!
