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.
