Last Saturday I drove all the way to Macclenny, to attend a Tunisian Crochet Class, at The Local Needle. You already know this is my BFF-LYS (Best Friend Forever Local Yarn Shop). Ok, it isn’t so “local”. Took me an hour to drive there, but it is well worth it.
I want to take you on a little tour of the shop. I have only been their twice. 🙂 I wish it was closer to me.
Joan, the owner, has every corner packed with wonderful yarn. Some of it makes your eyes pop out because of the price, but oh does it feel good. Not the eye popping part, the feel of the yarn. Stay with me here, ok?
Below is one corner, where people can sit for classes or just sit and crochet/knit and chat. We chatted a lot during our class time. 🙂
Here are a few more pictures of the store. Isn’t it cute?
The class for the Tunisian Crochet started at 11:00. We sat at the the table with our instructor.
Here I am at the same table. Joan was kind enough to take a picture of me. I really think the amount of trouble I had seeing the stitches in the yarn, was due the color of my pink shirt. Right Chocolatechic?
This is Jeff. He was our instructor and he is very good at what he does.
Here is my practice swatch. I got the hang of it after a few minutes, but it had only 10 stitches. The shawl has 190! I’ll tell you more about the project in a couple of days.
The yarn is Pagewood Hand dyed Sock Yarn, in Teal. Isn’t it pretty. 🙂
