The first Saturday evening of every month, Port Townsend has a Gallery Walk with featured artists displaying their work at downtown galleries and stores. Last Saturday, March 7, the Bazaar Girls Yarn Shop and Fibre Emporium hosted Jorstad Creek yarns and BK Collective patterns as their featured artists.
You may remember my earlier post on this wonderful local yarn store.
Kerry Graber, the owner of Jorstad Creek, and I were at the store all day meeting customers and talking about our yarns and patterns.
Isle of Skye, a lace-weight kid mohair and silk blend from Jorstad Creek, was the subject of lots of oohing and aahing for the depth and vibrance of the color. It is one of my favorites.
Kerry Graber, the owner of Jorstad Creek, and I were at the store all day meeting customers and talking about our yarns and patterns. While at Bazaar Girls we met:
- Kerri Hartmann, the co-owner of the store, who has an idea a minute on all things fiber
- Aaron who knits like a fiend during his shifts at Bazaar Girls and still has interest and energy to knit in his off time
- A Navy doctor whose knitting group received project packages when they couldn’t walk down to the local yarn store for supplies while on deployment in Afghanistan
- The mother of a mother-daughter baking team, “Crust”, that makes delicious pastries sold all around Port Townsend who wants to add Iceland to her world travels so she can get more familiar with Icelandic knitting
- Many other creative people who knit, crochet and weave
- And the cormorants, bald eagle and kingfisher who visit the abandoned pilings directly across from the store’s back porch
We took breaks to enjoy the truly spectacular early March day in Port Townsend. It is a little hard to see but this is the ferry that runs between Port Townsend and Whidbey Island. Not a cloud in the sky and the Cascade Mountains in the background. (I know, I know. I shoulda kept the good camera with me.)
See more about Bazaar Girls on Facebook. Kerry and I had a great day in the store, leaving BK Collective patterns and Jorstad Creek yarns to be enjoyed by Bazaar Girls’ customers for months to come.
Thanks for stopping by. I’m off to more KnitKnot Adventures.
