My Favorite Yarn Shop is Closing!
I have been going to Cottage Yarn for about 3-4 years. I love the owner, Sara! Sara has decided to retire and unless someone steps in and buys the shop it will be closing in a little while. I am sad to see this little shop go but I do understand why Sara wants to retire! Some of us will still be meeting and knitting together but we will have to go to the 3 other shops in Charlotte to buy our yarn. I have a pretty good yarn stash right now so I shouldn't have to buy alot for awhile.
I really hate to see another little shop that is independently owned close. The area where I live could really use a yarn shop. The other 3 shops in the area in in Charlotte and not really close to where I live. 1 of the shops is close to where I work, so that would work for me as far as buying yarn.
I have made many friends at Cottage Yarn and I hope some of us remain friends and go on trips, go to yarn festivals, knit on Tuesday and Sundays and just remain connected.
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
