New Yarn Store: Kniterary

Whitby finally has a wool shop!

And it's a good one. Kniterary opened a couple weeks ago and I had a chance to get over there yesterday. (You know, since it was 40C with the humidity, it seemed like perfect knitting weather) I was impressed. First the location is fabulous, with parking at the back, and the interior is spacious and bright and full of yarn. More yarn than I was expecting, actually. I mean, what does Whitby know about good yarn? We've been stuck with Michael's and Walmart for years and we're used to all that crappy acrylic! Well, apparently Whitby does know something about quality, because Kniterary's got plenty: Debbie Bliss, Noro, Opal, Mission Falls, just to name a few and there's more on the way, I hear (Fleece Artist, Fleece Artist, Fleece Artist!).

All that goodness was hard to resist, especially when a 20% discount coupon is thrown in (check your Fri., July 14 Whitby This Week, people!). That there is a couple of balls of Kathmandu Aran yarn (nice and soft) and some handpainted Opal sock yarn (love those colours). I'm sure I'll get it from my coworker, who I've been bemoaning my financial shortfalls to lately, but c'est la vie!

Kniterary's a couple blocks north of the four corners in Whitby at the corner of Brock & John St.

I'll just got home from Windsor and now I am going to have to check my newspaper for the coupon! I was impressed too!

Three balls of yarn are not going too ruin you - you go girl! As a stash enhancement, this is pretty - but tame. Especially after hearing about our fellow knitters various sprees at the last Drunken Knitten Nite...

P.S. This co-worker wouldn't have noticed about the spending of $, especially since it was on yarn - she was still in shock over the fact that you actually left your house and lawnchair!

La vie! That sock yarn *had* to come home, especially in this weather. It's a moral imperative. Socks are the only tolerable knitting.

Lucky you for having such a wonderful yarn shop in town. You showed such self-restraint in your purchases! ;-)

The exterior of the shop is too cute - it looks the perfect building for a yarn shop. Too bad I'm city bound or I'd visit for sure.
How are the prices?
