Hey, guess where I went today?
If you said Fibre Space, you are right.
Fibre Space is a new-ish (opened last summer) yarn shop in my hometown — Alexandria, VA. And I finally made time for a visit. It’s located on North Fayette Street in Old Town. Great location — there was plenty of street parking within a block of the shop, and there is a Five Guys across the street.
Here are a few images of the shop. The street view:
They just decorated their front window for the holidays:
They have excellent taste in the books they have for sale:
They have a great classroom off the main room:
And they’ve got lots of yarn!
The owner, Danielle, kindly allowed me to photograph her behind the counter:
I’ll be doing an event in conjunction with Fibre Space in a couple of months (more on that next week) so it was about time I stopped by to check out the shop.
Y’all remember that I did a sock design for the Dye Dreams Four Seasons Sock club — right? What you may not know is that the lovely ladies at Dye Dreams have also started a Four Seasons Mitten Club — and they asked me to do a mitten design for the first club offering — the winter mittens.
And I need your help.
I’ve created the mitten pattern and love it but I have one problem — I can’t for the life of me think of a good name for the pattern. Here’s the mitten design:
We want a winter-themed name. Any ideas?
Leave your suggestion for a name in the comments to this post by noon eastern time this Sunday, November 29. We’ll pick a name from the suggestions and the person who suggested the winning name will win a kit to knit the mittens!
“Those of us with floofy feet don’t need mittens.”
