Petaluma

A friend recently moved to the town of Petaluma, about an hour north of San Francisco.  Today we visited her, and we happened to walk by the LYS, Knitterly, so of course we had to peek in.  Oh my goodness, they have beautiful things!  

I love the cutesy needles for kids!

The needles!

The stitch markers!

There were way more buttons than this small sample.

The Habu!

The sample knits in Knitterly were particularly nice.  I’m not always inspired by the samples in the shops, but they have really simple, stylish things that I could imagine knitting and wearing.

The books and notions!

Can you believe that I didn’t buy any yarn???  The kids/SO were not feeling particularly patient, so for this visit I had to be satisfied with just a few pictures and a strong desire to return, next time perhaps with a particular project in mind to shop for!

Our friend took us to a house where there is chicken feed in a bucket for passers-by to feed the chickens in their yard!  Who could resist?

The chickens!

It was HOT!  The Wee Girl wondered if the plants were sweating.

The colors!

We also passed by the local sewing/fabric shop, which looked adorable, but the non-crafty types were not up for it.  Next time???

During the evening, I made some good progress on the Wonder Woman sweater.  At the beginning of a movie, I was still on the gold section, by the end I was on the second star.  Pretty good!

The stars!

The stars!
