supermarkets with yarn

Thank you, JoannaD, who pointed me in the direction of this amazing post. I highly recommend that you read it. It is amusing, very witty, has lovely photography and it even includes a little discussion on knitting techniques! What more could one ask for? :)

Brief summary:

  • knitter goes to the very north of Norway
  • hangs out with wild animals
  • finds supermarkets and grocery shops where yarn is stocked side by side with milk, bread and the newspaper
  • finds supermarkets and grocery shops where yarn is stocked side by side with milk, bread and the newspaper in enormous amounts!
  • learns a new knitting technique
  • finds a lady knitting at the airport, stalks her (a little bit :), and learns another knitting technique
  • exhibits an FO and some stash enhancements
  • writes a brilliant post on it

Now go read it, you know you’re curious! :)

And let me just ask you one thing, can you imagine a better dream world than one where all supermarkets carry yarn as a matter-of-factly necessity of daily life ? :)))))))))

About fridica

I started knitting completely by accident, when I was visiting my parents for a holiday in 2008. On a boring Sunday afternoon, I decided to dig through their stash of books to see if there was anything interesting to take back to my apartment. A knitting manual happened to be one of the books I found. I got curious, my mom immediately dug out her old needles and yarn stash (which she hadn’t used in a decade at least), and in a few minutes we were both casting on - she by memory, I by following the instructions from the book… :) Since I normally prefer learning from books, this was ideal.. I took the book home with me, and very very soon - I was an addict.
