Here's the first of many future "Featured Yarn Shops" on the SweaterBabe.com blog!
Yarn Shops are what inspire and teach us to knit! They let us discover new yarns, new techiniques, and new friends.
I'm launching a new program, where Yarn Shops will be "sponsoring" some of my patterns by providing yarn support. In return, I'll feature photos and details on their shop so you can learn about the GREAT yarn shops that are out there! (Are you a yarn shop interested in sponsoring a future SweaterBabe.com pattern? Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more. . .)
And now, for our first Featured Shop:
Shelley's Yarns & Fiber Shoppe in Taylors Falls, MN. Shelley very kindly introduced me to and sent me the Aslan Trends Del Cerro and Guanaco you see in these two patterns. She raved about these yarns and I will have to agree - they are wonderful yarns to work with and give me fabulous stitch definition, which is one of my priorities in yarn choice!
The #125 Luxe Infinity Scarf you see here was just released today! It's a quick, seamless infinity scarf with a gorgeously unique stitch pattern.
The #124 Romantic Ballet Wrap Cardigan is a new pattern that will be released in January. It was knit in the Guanaco alpaca/merino wool blend from Aslan Trends.
These are just 2 of the yarns that Shelley offers at her well-stocked yarn shop. Just look at the photos showing her extensive selection of yarns! Cozy armchairs and such a warm and inviting place to knit!
Read on for MORE about this special Yarn Shop!
Shelley's Yarns & Fiber Shoppe is located in the heart of historic Taylors Falls, MN--along the beautiful St. Croix River.
They offer many natural fiber yarns, including handspun, hand-dyed and embellishment "art" yarns. Also offered are a variety of wool fibers for needlefelting and spinning. Their knitting area doubles as a classroom and is often filled with lots of laughter and busy fingers.
"We pride ourselves in providing a cheerful and helpful atmosphere where our customers quickly become our friends--and then, just as quickly, our family." says owner Shelley Staeven. "My number one priority is to love people. And I am blessed to have the opportunity every day to do just that."
