When a knitter visits a new location, it is customary for the knitter to seek out a new yarn shop and observe the local yarn culture.
I can report that the local yarn culture in New Bern, North Carolina is quite interesting, indeed.
Weaver’s Webb in New Bern
Sock yarn galore!
Lamb’s Pride and Cascade 220 Wall!
Most tourists take snapshots with large marble and stone landmarks. The knitting tourist takes snapshots with large displays of animal fur and plant fibers. Most tourists remember their trip with small souvenirs: keychains, postcards, pens, and tchotchkes. The knitting tourist remembers the trip with a different kind of souvenir: a ball of this spun animal fur!
…This particular knitting tourist brought home some wool…
…to knit a certain yoked pullover…

A wonderful souvenir to remember a great trip!
