During our Cape Cod vacation I found the Yarn Hound in Dennis. This shop tickled me especially because I call my genealogy business The Genealogy Hound! When we made our first stop at the Yarn Hound shop I discovered that they were having a charity open knitting afternoon later in the week. I decided then and there to go back.
It was nice to see a large table with many knitting ladies chitchatting as if they were old friends. I expect they WERE old friends! At least they were knitting shop friends....The shop owner asked what I could knit. When I told her I would knit anything she gave me a "kit" of yarn and a pattern for the fish hat that was found on Knitty.com.
There were lovely yarns, both synthetic and natural which I knitted into this hat:
It was nice to be included in this charity project. I would love to have been able to get the hat knitted up and returned before returning home, but...no time as we were leaving the next morning. The Post Office will be our friend!
If you are in the Dennis, Massachusetts area, do drop in. Parking is in the rear of the building.
