Look at that color

IMG_2304Although Infinite Yarns Inc. was not part of this year’s yarn crawl, my friend Joanie wanted to visit this shop. Some of the other knitters had been there and gave it good reviews. What a great shop!

The owner ( I wish I could remember her name) was so kind and cheery. She has a great selection of luxury yarn and holds a bunch of classes. Everything from learn to knit or crochet to fair isle, intarsia and more.

She offered us a 10% discount on our purchases that day. Another shop we visited was The Knitted Purl in Oyster bay. I bought all my sock yarn there. They had a 35% off basket full of sock yarn.

I also picked up a hank of alpaca sox that was 50% off. Another group of helpful folks, excited and enthusiastic about yarn. I came home with enough yarn for 5 pairs of socks, 2 dishcloths and 2 spa cloths.

If you’re ever on Long Island go visit these wonderful shops.
