The New Jersey Wool Walk


Grab your passport,
you've got just four days to visit the fifteen participating shops in New Jersey.
That's the New Jersey Wool Walk.
And don't worry if you had no idea...I didn't know either


I only made it to one shop, 
but that was fine...
I had a wonderful visit with Paige Miller at
I have visited this shop in the past,
and I got to know Paige during my knitting trip to
The New York State Sheep & Wool Festival
in Rhinebeck, New York
Paige stayed in the same house I did and was part of our group.


Her shop is beautiful...
everything is displayed with so much care and attention to detail.

Now, it's time for pictures of the inside, it's gorgeous...




I purchased one of the chevron print, New Jersey bags,
a Wool Walk bag...


and the pattern and yarn to make this 
Gallatin Scarf
in purple of course, I hope I can figure it out.
If not, 
Paige said I could come to the shop, 
during an open knit and she would help me.



There were give-a-ways...

frames, and yummy cookies for all the husbands.




I am sure if I were only going to visit one shop, I picked the best one.
I'm really starting to get into this whole knitting thing...
having fun and doing all the things that knitters do.

  1. If a store like this contained fabric instead of wool I could lose my wife for days!

  5. That shawl is beautiful! I can't wait to see how it looks in the purple yarn that you chose. Whenever I go into yarn stores, I want to buy so many things - I'm good at starting, not so much at finishing. This looks like a fun store to visit!

  6. Very interesting, we don't have those here in TN. But...we do have quilt trails...you will find painted quilt blocks on barns and buildings. Do you have those in NJ? Paige has a beautiful shop. I love when you go in and see things displayed all over. Nice.
