On our way home from our fantastic family weekend away we drove through one of my favourite spots in the lower North Island, Greytown. Imagine my delight, and excited squeals, when I saw a cute pink shingle hanging outside a gorgeous cottage proclaiming "Sock Yarn Boutique". Hubby knew to screech to the side of the road immediately (good boy).
The girls and I got to explore the sweet wee "Joy of Yarn" boutique at the back of Scarlet Oak Cottage (romantic sounding huh?) that had just opened a couple of days previously. Unfortunately I didn't have large loads of cash on hand and the Eftpos machine wasn't available so I managed to scrounge enough coins for a ball of Regia Bamboo sock yarn for I6.
James is stocking Knitpicks needles and Vintage Purls limited edition sock yarns among the Opal and Regia yarns. I look forward to a child-free visit to have a good poke and fondle AND for his online store to open so I can nab some more Bamboo in MY colours;-) The wee boutique is open Saturdays and Sundays 10am-3pm - well worth a stop!
