It’s so hard to buy for knitters–their stash of yarn is overwhelming and enigmatic to the uninitiated. Yet their passion is clear and you want to give them something they’ll love. Why not art? Love.Yarn.Shop. has a selection of Carol MacDonald’s prints, both framed and unframed. Master printmaker from Vermont, Carol has a body of work that captures the knitter’s world. With titles like, “Stash,” “Knit Suite,” and “Potential,” the knitter can gaze contentedly at the print while the hands rest on a three-dimensional project, needles momentarily at rest. Her work can be viewed at Carol MacDonald and, of course, at the shop.
Paula Herbert is a former 8th grade English teacher and yarn shop owner. She has opened her second shop, LYS, and is enjoying the company of fellow knitters, crocheters, spinners, and fiber artists.
