One of the things I got to do in Wisconsin was visit a yarn shop! I was looking back over my posts, and the last yarn shop I visited was in Las Vegas when we went there in November of 2019. No wonder I got so excited about visiting this shop!
We visited Casting On in Appleton – a very nice little shop with a pretty good stock of knitting, crocheting and spinning supplies. They have classes and knit nights, as well as offering private lessons. There was a class gathering as we went in, and everyone was friendly and chatty. There was a real mix of clientele! You know how most of us crafters get irritated at news people who characterize all knitters as grandmas. Well, this place did have a share of grandma-style persons, but also had a small group of young goth girls as well as some Moms with babies – all shopping and crafting away, friendly as can be.
I did not get any photos in the shop itself, possibly because I was overcome with yarn shopping excitement. However, if you follow the link to the shop’s website above, you will get some nice pictures of the place. I did come away with some finds:
If you are ever in the Appleton area, check it out! Have you gotten out to any new places lately?
