Circles Salon is hundreds of miles away, near Boston, and I have never even been there, but from what I read about them, it’s the yarn store of my dreams. They have carefully chosen yarns that emphasize the artisan, support the communities the fiber comes from, and consider the environmental impact of their creation. They have a playroom with yarn and projects for kids, they have a “salon” for hanging out and knitting, and they have a yarn cooperative that is morphing into, basically, a community owned store. How cool is that? We were all talking about the ideal yarn store at the Savory knitting group last night, and how we’d like to see it appear close to us… Perhaps Circles will consider franchising…
