I'm recovering from being oncall, and it's slow going. Something about having to be awake during the day and being unable to sleep at night in anticipation of a night filled with increasingly anxious sites. On the worst night I've ever had, I had 6 sites down at once... so you can tell what trauma inspired my sleeplessness.
But despite all that, I did manage to sneak out and get some pictures to show and tell with. I took both of my boys to the Spotted Sheep Yarn Shoppe, both to pick up some sweater stuff and to see the visiting alpacas. I'll have another post about the alpacas to come, but this one is about the local yarn shop.
The Spotted Sheep is located in a cute little building that has had several purposes in the time I've lived here.
The upstairs space is finished up, but still being organized. I got to peek and am very excited. There is a mini kitchen upstairs, and a really beautiful classroom space with long tables, sturdy chairs and a sizeable couch. Margaret was speaking about her spinning wheel, and getting stock organized upstairs... and how much work is going on in the background to get things ready for the Grand Opening on Nov 5.
Frankly, every time I go in there are improvements and more fun things to experience. The yarns are beautiful. Margaret and Bruce love alpaca as much as I do, and running through the store with your eyes closed will show you exactly how much! The yarns are a tactile delight.
I'm really looking forward to see this shop grow and refine. What they have already is fantastic, and I only see great things in their future!
