Field Trip!!

So, a few weeks back, I discovered Fibre Space. Rather, someone tweeted something about it, I happened to read it and realized it was Not That Far Away. By the end of that day, I had a map, and had promised my husband 5 Guys hamburgers for dinner if he'd go on a field trip with me. Turns out, the store is REALLY easy to get to from the King Street Metro - either walk, or take the Free Trolley that conveniently drops you at the corner the shop is on. See?

We found it pretty quickly...

The Storefront

Closeup. Cool mannequins, eh?

Needless to say, I ran amok inside. I'll be coming back with one of the better cameras (if not The Good Camera) to get better photos of the interior. Let me say: I LOVE the way this store is laid out. Bulky yarn is all Here; then you move in a clockwise manner, finally reaching the laceweight, which is over There. And it's arranged by color, to boot. I've never had such an easy time finding what I wanted in a yarn store!! Some had to follow me home. Hm, I need better pictures of this too. Anyway, three skeins of laceweight and two skeins of sock yarn came home with me.

The yarn looks out, sadly, from the 5 Guys window at its former home.
Relocation after relocation: such is the cross that yarn must bear.

I really do have to get back there to get better pics. Really. I know there are fine photos on the Fibre Space website and all, but, um, I need to get some of my own? I'm not going back just because of the yarn.

And if you believe that, I've got a lovely bridge in Brooklyn that's for sale, cheap...


  1. It looks to me like you are enabling........shame on you....
    It DOES look like a lovely shop.
    Do you have ideas for your new purchase?

  2. I LOVE the last photo - it really does look like the yarn is looking out, sad to have left its home. But don't worry, I'm sure it'll soon adjust and love living with you!
