On the road again....

Local road trips are the perfect activity during a stay-at-home vacation week.  I gathered the girlfriends yesterday and showed them three spots that were in Blount County. Two of our stops will be covered in another blog but for this one I want to highlight the new yarn store in Maryville - the Hook and Needle.

Kristy opened the shop last November.  It is located behind Sullivan's and has a great parking lot across the street.

It is a small shop but is decorated adorably and packed with all sorts of fiber goodies.  The main emphasis is on knitting and crocheting but weavers can easily find something that would work nicely on a rigid heddle or table loom.  This was proven as fact since all of walked out with a bag of inspiration.

There is a cute and comfy sitting area along with a table in the back that is used for classes.  An old phone booth provides a unique spot to highlight the gorgeous yarn.

As with most small towns a couple of us ran into people we knew.  The atmosphere was one of smiles and excitement.  This is one road trip that will have to be repeated - and soon!

Until the next adventure - stay warped,
