I’m just going to the store to buy milk hunny.

Really, hunny I’m just going to the grocery store to buy more milk.
I just went to the store to buy milk hunny...

(Superwash merino sock yarn from Autumn House Farm purchased from Ewe-nique sheep. I saw this in my sister’s Rhinebeck haul and wish I had gotten some too!)

and maybe some more yarn! About a month ago my friend Amanda Jayne told me there was a new yarn shop opening in Fezell’s Shop and Save in Dubois, Pennsylvania. Honestly, I tried not to get my hopes up. Really, a yarn shop in a grocery store? Could they really have nice yarn that would make a yarn snob happy? When Amanda Jayne and I walked up to Ewe-nique, (ok we giggled first. Ewe-nique hehee! Love that name.)
Entrance

We where greeted and encouraged to come in an have a cookie. (yay cookies!) After taking a step into the stop my biased expectations melted away.

The nice big table! Behind the table on the self there are some more Ironstone yarns,

The back wall has lots of brown sheep, more Ironstone yarn, and some fiesta yarns.

Overall this is a nice shop, with room to grow.ย  The owner said she is taking suggestions for yarn lines. When she asked us what yarns we would like to see, Amanda Jayne and I couldn’t think of anything! I have a nice list now. ๐Ÿ˜€

Almost forgot the shops hours~

Open Wednesday 11-5, Thursday 11-6, Friday 11-5 and Saturday 10-4.

  1. What a Ewe-nique idea. It looks like a great shop! I bet it ends up a huge success! I can’t imagine how non kniters will be able to resist the lure of free cookies and pretty colored yarn in a cute shop they see week after week in the store. She’ll have to run a steady stream of beginning knitting classes!

  2. I’d be in big trouble if there were a yarn shop in my grocery store. I can see it now, my refrigerator and cabinets would be full of yarn and my grocery money would be gone ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. That’s really funny going out for “milk”. I would love to use that excuse, but I have this little sneaky gleam in my eye when I leave the house and sadly I don’t have the “poker” gleam. Hub just shakes his head. The shop looks well organized. It’s great they are asking you about what you would like to see. You’ll have to keep us posted about how the shop is doing.
