My sister is one of those people, so after spending most of Monday afternoon at the outlet malls in Pigeon Forge, Mom and I asked for a detour to The Spinnery in Gatlinburg. http://smokymountainspinnery.com/
What a beautiful store! We're not the first Tuesday Weavers to shop there; the owner--whose name I neglected to ask--remembers Ila and LaDonna coming in many times, and there are probably more of you who have visited.
We caught her trying to close up after she did her taxes, but we tried to make it worth her while. It's a lovely store, full of luscious, colorful yarn, roving, tools and accessories. There's something for everyone in pursuit of yarn, from spinners to knitters to weavers and crocheters. Lots to touch, fondle and dream about.
We lured Liz and Deedee in to pick out yarn for new hats. Even Amelia Earhart, newest border collie family member was allowed to come inside, though until I start making collars and leashes on an inkle loom, and I will someday, she won't be getting anything but love in a store like this.
