I promised you photos of our new local yarn shop and I try very hard to keep my promises. The landscape around MHC is dotted with old homes, farms and barns. I’m very used to seeing them as I drive around. In fact, I’d seen this white barn countless times as I was out and about. One day, as I was tooling along, I almost slammed on the brakes when I saw a sign in front of the barn that said White Barn Farm Sheep & Wool. What??? Could it be? I wasn’t doing any crocheting or knitting at the time and life was busy so I didn’t make it there until very recently. (It’s only been open for a few months.) Since I was on the hunt for yarn with which to crochet my obsession scarf, I thought I should shop local first. I was looking for Mochi but wasn’t counting on the store carrying it. Well, I was wrong. There it was. And there was this lovely shop and its owner, Paula. Would you like to see some photos?
Gosh darn it! I went out on a sunny day to take photos and while I was out it turned cloudy. This is the barn. I love the green door and if I could, I would spirit those Adirondack chairs away to my front lawn. This is a close-up of the tree you see on the right.
Yarn balls as Christmas balls – perfect. As you step inside, you see this:
A gorgeous sheep with a hat. Paula raises sheep, by the way. To the right there is an old door leading to another part of the barn.
