Jobs fill your pockets, but adventures fill your soul. ~ Jaime Lyn
I am fortunate to have a few crafty coworkers. I especially love it when they are willing to go on a yarn adventure with me. Recently one of my knitting coworkers and I took the ferry to Whidbey Island to check out a few yarn shops and tour the sights. I never get tired of riding on the ferry. How can one get tired of this view?
The first yarn store we ventured into was Whidbey Isle Yarns. This is a delightful little shop with tea, vintage jewelry, buttons as far as your eye can see and hand dyed yarn. The store owner was so excited her shop was our reason for visiting the Island, she gave us 10% off!
Naturally, I bought some tea and hand dyed sock yarn. It seems I can’t pass up sparkles this year. This lovely button also predates World War II.
Historic downtown Coupeville is so quint, I almost felt like I was stepping into the movie Jaws.
The views were stunning. The ice cream wasn’t bad either.
With views so spectacular it’s hard to believe we actually left Coupeville, but my knitting coworker and I wanted to check out Knitty Purls. Could Langley be just as quaint as Coupeville?
It has an art walk.
And wine bar that welcomes knitters.
I also managed to find sock yarn from Nova Scotia.
While I was out, Gracie kept guard over the house. Doesn’t she just look mean?
Okay, maybe this is how she really spent her day.
