Yesterday was my yearly visit to the fabulous LYS Silver Threads and Golden Needles in Franklin, NC. As always it was a treat. I was looking for something which would thrill a fourth grade girl, and they suggested a cute little scarf made from two balls of Trendsetter Geisha. It is adorable and easy. Cast on 12 stitches then knit until it is the length you want. Geisha does all of the work.
Isn't it cute! The people in the store are so nice and helpful. They visited Knitting: A Love Story while I was there and seemed to like it. They said they would do a shoutout on Facebook for people to visit. Hurray! ☺️
Their yarn selection is one of the best. They have wonderful high end yarn that makes you want to say "I'll take that and that and that and that!" As a matter of fact, that is what I said. I bought some beautiful yarn that is weighed and you pay by the ounce.
Isn't it beautiful! It is what I call UDY or undesignated yarn. I'll probably just enjoy looking at it.
Silver Threads and Golden Needles is set up to showcase fabulous projects (I want to do that and that one and that one) and their beautiful yarn. Even though they have a fabulous selection, the shop doesn't feel busy or cluttered and yarns are easy to see.
You might want to take a field trip to Franklin, NC some day. This weekend is the Western Carolina Yarn Crawl which includes LYS around Ashville and Silver Threads and Golden Needles. If you have some time on your hands and want to be WOWED by beautiful yarn, you might want to try it.
Thank you to the staff of Silver Threads and Golden Needles for helping me with this post.
