cirrus in a sugar bowl
Behind the scenes here at the house of the Daily Purl are family and friends that have come to know and live with one knitting fanatic. When I say one more row my husband knows the sounds and movements when I start another and calls me on it and he treks to yarn stores with me when I know one is in walking distance. A few weeks ago we were in the city I dragged him to Purl where I purchased a skein of Andy’s Yarn and one skein of Manos del Uruguay in Cirrus. He was surprised that I only wanted the two skeins. (I think I need to bring him with me more often because I found myself easily fulfilled by the bright orange and light blue skein. By myself I have no restraint and am ravenous for yarn.) We left the store and started walking to a café for lunch. On the way a couple was walking ahead of us and across the street on our left was The Point. I said to him – maybe too loudly, another yarn store! – then the weirdest thing happened, the woman with the man suddenly crossed the street and started making her way towards The Point. The man kept on walking and a few seconds later he turned around with a puzzled look on his face. We pointed to the woman darting across the street. Laughter filled the air as he trailed his companion and we continued on our way to lunch.

Yes, I think stores like Purl and the Point have that effect on knitters!
Can’t wait to see what you’ve made with the Manos. Looks like there’s only a little bit left…

I agree, wonderful photo. You just wrote a post about someone that could have been me in theory. I too am magnetized by such stores. While in Paris, this is how I found le Droguerie, that famous yarn and notions store in the first arr.-told my family to go find something to do for awhile…
