From Our Editors
Some knitters covet a lone, comfortable seat on the porch. Others like to counterbalance the clicking of their needles with chatter, and meet up with friends to share stories as their scarves grow long. Thankfully, Yarning for Ewe accommodates knitters of all stripes. Its colorful supply of yarns spans names such as Blue Sky Alpaca and Ozark Handspun, all of which are foraged for by owner Betty Shah. Betty's love of knitting emerged at age eight, when her grandmother introduced her to the dexterous art. She now strives to do the same for others, whether they're simply picking up a ball of yarn or learning a new skill.
Classes cover the basics of knitting as well as specialized techniques, from mastering the brioche stitch to escaping the labyrinthine depths of an infinity scarf. And, for those who want to socialize while they work, knit and crochet nights at the store bring fellow crafters together. Evidence of the shop's strong sense of community can be easily found on its site: the "Spotlight on Ewe" page showcases customer works including shawls, cowls, and baby booties.
