I have really fallen in love with Watkins Glen, New York. It’s a quaint four-block downtown with interesting shops, amazing local organic food at Wildflower Cafe where you can knit through lunch
and the best part of all…Finger Lakes Fibers on the main drag in the center of town.
Anne taught her first class there last night to kick off the Finger Lakes Fiber Tour & Knitters Retreat. It was completely full and you could hear a pin drop during most of it. Every student was enthralled with the information on yarn characteristics and their effect on knitted fabric in Anne’s Yarn Voyage class. Afterwards we opened up the Bare Naked Wools pop up store so retreaters could get first dibs on the yarn. And they ATE.IT.UP!
Later today Anne teaches Beginning Lace Knitting, followed by a trunk show of Knitspot shawl, scarf and sweater samples. Afterwards, the Bare Naked Wools pop up store is OPEN TO THE PUBLIC from 7 – 9 p.m., plus you can sit and knit with other Knitspotters. If you’re in the Finger Lakes area, please stop in tonight! We would love to show you all the artisan yarns, plus a couple that we haven’t even released yet in the Knitspot shop. Come see what Fall has to offer! Directions here.
