Now that we’ve passed the Solstice and summer has officially begun I’ve been thinking about my summer knitting projects. In particular, I’ve thought about one of the new projects I am hoping to start this summer, The Exploration Station. It has been fun to think about because I bought the yarn at The Quarter Stitch. I stopped by the Quarter Stitch because I was in New Orleans on a trip with my family. A friend suggested I take a look at the Quarter Stitch. This little shop, tucked away down a street from Andrew Jackson’s statue, was totally worth the drop in. I bought two skeins of yarn imported from Wales and some handpainted yarn that is Japanese. This is going to be one international shawl.
This is a picture of the beautiful bag of wool I bought from the Quarter Stitch. They did such an amazing job rapping it up. I almost didn’t want to unwrap it so I could get ready to knit. I can’t wait to start this project. It is going to be so beautiful. It is wonderful to be able to knit something that reminds me a lovely time that I had with my family.by
