A Not-So-LYS Adventure.

Woolbearers in Mt. Holly, NJ


Yesterday, MidnightPurls and I stopped by WaWa for some delicious iced coffee and hit the road. The not so LYS was having a sale and we pretty much needed to go. With my RPM sock in hand, we made the hour trip to lovely, HISTORIC (every sign on the way said "historic") Mt. Holly. Woolbearers was the first yarn shop either of us had ever been in, and after knitting for few years, has moved twice. The new location is bright and overwhelming, it even has a real store front! I had all intentions of buying enough Rowan Wool Cotton to do the Sesame Sweater from Magknits, but by the time we got there it was completely sold out. So, after ten different choices of project and yarns, I decided on some of Woolbearers own Hand Dyed Superwash Kona to finally make the Baby Surprise jacket. I'm sure you've all noticed I have a thing for green, and there's a certain shade of green that's considered "robbie green" in my household. I wanted to make sure the jacket was feminine (it is for a girl) but, I also wanted to make sure that there is no doubt in anyone's mind that it had come from me. The "I'm Falling" colorway was exactly what I needed!

I'm Falling

I'm so happy we decided to go, and that MP was cool with driving to come get me and then driving all the way there. Thanks to MidnightPurls and Woolbearers!

Lucky you-I still haven't made it there.

You know, I need to make some trips to NJ LYS, except once it gets past an hour drive, sigh, I convince myself I could be knitting. I love the yarn for the baby surprise, it certainly is the thing right now.

Did these guys used to be in Cape May? Where were they before?

SHUT UP! How freaking cute are you? And that's going to be a killer BSJ.

I don't live too far from Woolbearers! Though I have never actually been there. I tried to find it once but got lost before class and had to try and navigate my way out. There is a LYS not far from there called The Knitting Room in Medford. I'm not sure if it would be up your alley but its a suggestion.

Happy Knitting!

Love the yarn - great colors! I haven't made it so far south yet to go to this store...but maybe I should go soon!

Aw, you're welcome for picking you up. I'm just glad you came with. It wouldn't have been half as much fun if you didn't!

Did you start the BSJ yet? I'm loving knitting it. :)

I hate it when a yarn sells out before I can buy it. It takes me forever to pick out another yarn for a project.

The store does look bright and overwhelming.

Hi! You commented about the dapper boys knitting on Skog's site...I'm Roy and wanted to say thanks for thinking I'm dapper! You are a great knitter..and hopefully I'll be able to make a sweater like yours one day! It's lovely!

Just the outside of that store looks cool. Can't wait to see the jacket. (Green is my favorite color too)

What kind of proximity does this palace have to Philadelphia? Because I must go. I must. go. now.
