I took a ride yesterday to Portland Maine to visit the KnitWit Yarn Shop for hands-on review and RE-selection of colors chosen for my latest piece – Margareta, a 2-color tee. While Quince & Co. is delightfully convenient for online ordering and I wouldn't be without their swatch booklet, after thoughtful selection from it of color pairs (I chose a few), when they came in I knew the set selected for this piece wasn't going to work out. I needed face-to-skein time with the actual wool. Fortunately for me the Quince line is now available at a this LYS (okay, not local to me from Brookline Mass but I was up for a road trip and I do love Portland).
I chose egret. Yes, I know.. not very adventurous, but it served the issues raised and I find it to be rather classic in a Calvin Klein sort of way.
While I was there I picked up several more skeins of frost and honey – each way more beautiful in person. Can't wait to get at these, but first things first. Thank you KnitWit Yarn Shop for providing a friendly and helpful visit. I'll be back.
