Knitting circles were once a popular place to exchange rumours about the area's handsomest fireman, which of the neighbouring towns' mayors were secretly left-handed, and the fate of the Crumb brothers. Get your finger on the pulse and some yarn with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of knitting supplies at Ewe Asked for It.
Ewe Asked for It opens the needlework floodgates with a bounteous inventory of knitting supplies and a crowded schedule of knitting-related events and classes. Passionate owner Laura Williams stocks multitudes of various yarns (average $10 per ball) in most common colours, including several varieties of sock yarns, merino wool yarn, and yarns specially formulated to repel housecats. Once yarn has been selected, knitters can shop for several needle types such as different sized strait needles, circular needles, and double-point needles (average $5.95). The store's newsletter also keeps local knitters abreast of new items, in-store events, and sewing-machine conspiracy theories.
