Passport in hand, I’ll soon go on the Yarn Discovery Tour, learning more about the yarn shops in my new(ish) domicile in Northeast Ohio. I purchased my “Passport” from The Artful Yarn in Chagrin Falls. Any of the 15 shops participating in the Tour sell the Passports. The list is impressive! Even given more than two weeks for the Tour, I wonder whether I’ll make it to all 15. It sure would be fun! I’m already plotting my course for the September 6-24 dates.
I hope I can stay disciplined enough to bring patterns with me to shop for. I might begin with this pretty Acorn Trail cardigan from Amy Herzog:
It’s not always easy to find an entire sweater’s worth of yarn, so I’ll pick out some smaller projects too. I checked my “Favorites” list on Ravelry the other day and was shocked to find over 500 patterns! It’s high time to start whittling that list down! The Yarn Discovery Tour will be the perfect way to pair yarns with those projects.
