Listening to your new episode while unraveling a project was so much fun. I was one of the lucky travelers you spoke about that visited your shop a few weeks ago on a drizzly day while we were visitng in the area. Your wonderful assistant welcomed me into your "boutique" and I was in heaven. My patient husband sat in the car knowing I'd be a much more pleasant travel companion afterwards. Sure enough, I walked out with some Quince & Co Tern and a big smile on my face. I'll be back in late October with a friend as we drive from the Bay Area to Santa Barbara. Thank you so much for the giveaway opportunity. I'd love to be entered: ravid - emrubin

I'm not fond of mystery shawl KALs. I do sign up in advance but then usually look at all of the spoiler photos before deciding if I want to knit the project...I'd definitely have your boutique on my list of destinations if I were to travel to your area.

Welcome back! Tea and yarn - what a perfect combination. Most days, I'd rather have tea than coffee so I drink a pretty fair amount of tea. Thank you for sharing so many artisan yarn lines. I live in a pretty rural area (no yarn shops) so I look forward to hearing about yarns I would probably never hear about otherwise.
