Knitterly.

A while back I'd found out about a beautiful yarn store located not too far from where I live...Knitterly in Petaluma, CA. I thought it would be fun to take my mom there for our birthdays. So on Saturday...we hit the road.
Knitterly is amazing. And the owner is NICE. Her logo is, "fine yarn, finest service" and she's not kidding. She was so talkative and friendly...so helpful in telling us good places to eat lunch...not to mention allowing me to take a bajillion photos!
Oh my goodness...and what a beautiful store. It is so photogenic. I love this store...and I don't even KNIT!!
From the time you enter the store you are in eye candy heaven. Everything about her store is lovely...the yarns, the tools, the displays, the walls, the art, the vignettes...everything. Not a detail is left undone. What a treat. Look at these gorgeous colors...yum.

I ended up buying some beautiful yarn (and then my mom bought a second one in case the one wasn't enough!) from Japan that my mom is going to make into a scarf for me. The main color is charcoal gray but it has flecks of every color imaginable so it will literally go with everything.
So if you find yourself in the area of Petaluma, CA head downtown and visit Knitterly. I have no affiliation whatsoever. I was just impressed with the store...impressed with the owner...grateful that she allowed me to take so many fun photos...and I know that you will love it as much as my mom and I did.
One word of warning...do not be in a hurry. You'll need at least two hours to poke around. We may have been there closer to three!

Visiting a yarn store is so healing for me. I love all the vibrant colors,textures and the peace that a skein of yarn and my bamboo knitting needles bring me. Knitting for the grandchildren and my daughters brings me such joy. With every stitch made, a memory is being created.A memory that is handed from generation to generation ..Each with a story to tell.

When I walk into a yarn store like this, it makes me want to get serious about knitting! Oh, the colors and textures! Just that window scene alone makes me want to drive up there!
