    Hi! My favorite yarn shops are Patternworks in Center Harbor, NH and Spinning Yarns in Dover, NH. I have three little girls (5, 3 and 1) and I knit anything for them with Worsted Marino Superwash because it is soft, squishy and not boring. I love to knit in the car (really this is the only time I get to knit ) and while watching football.
