Rowan Heaven

February 20

Those who know me well understand that I am completely obsessed with Rowan and RYC yarns. I have all the shade cards. When the new cards to come out in spring and fall they absorb my attention the way normal people become engrossed in Tom Clancy novels. I pat the little samples and pore over every fiber. So imagine my coming across and entire wall plus a rotating free-standing display of Rowan yarn. Oh, what a happy sight.

 I was thrilled to discover that this heavenly stash of Rowan yarns resides just up the coast from me, at Monarch Knitting & Quilts in Pacific Grove. It’s a good thing it’s a two hour drive from here. I’d just bring my blanket and move in if Joan would let me.

I love the way the colors in the store are arranged.

I guess we’re spoiled in California. When CAT and I were in this store she remarked on how little room there is in the New York yarn shops. Monarch has plenty of room to move around and is a feast for the eyes and imagination. I can’t wait to go back!

    A. Whole. Wall! Awesome!! Where’s the picture of your purchases? Hmmm??

    I’d be happy to have small shops…pretty much any shops…close by. There’s a sad one, and a snooty one. Next month there will be a new one and they’re going to sell MY MARKERS! Woot!

    Ohhh Colors…..drool. Next time My Beloved and I are out that way, I will be sure to stop in. If you give it thumbs up, it must be good!
