Last weekend Marin made a trip to southern Vermont to visit Knit or Dye at Rachel's request. Located right on Main street in beautful historic downtown Brattleboro, this light airy shop has been a popular spot for local knitters and tourists to Vermont alike.
Rachel opened her shop last fall, and has been experiencing quite a steady flow of business despite the economic slowdown. Her focus is local, sustainable and organic yarns with classes and projects in knitting, felting, crochet, spinning and dying.
She has devoted this quarter of her store to an O-Wool display area, and has a number of knit up garments on display as well.
Elizabeth Zimmerman's crafty and everpopular Baby Surprise jacket is here ...knit up in O-Wool Legacy DK. (There are over 8,000 projects listed in this pattern on ravelry!)
So Lets join in with Marin and Rachel! Say O-Wool all together Now!
