a new yarn shop in town, Faversham

A new yarn shop is opening in Faversham next week, just a short drive from my house. As luck would have it I had booked all of next week off work and it opens on Tuesday, so exited! Here are some lovely pictures taken from The Old Pharmacy web site including their wording. I'll be adding a blog report with my own pictures after my visit next week. Its going to be the perfect yarn shop and almost on my door step, I can see me spending a lot of time in Faversham.

I've managed to finish the back of my cotton jumper and cast on the front. I've even knitted a few rows in my lunch break today, determined to get it finished to I can start another project for me. I'm getting more confident now with knitting a simple jumper, I've had enough experience, years of it but I'm always disappointed with the result but this time I will finish it and wear it! I might even book up for a knitting course. So next week I can start looking for my next knitting project, maybe another cotton jumper to layer up over a long sleeve t-shirt. Colour, probably green this time or maybe red? I'll know when I see the yarn ;-)



Restored, gleaming and with sensors to activate the light when the day draws to a close, we are happy to have the pestle and mortar where it belongs


 
The shop counter made in the 1920s/30s by E. Pollard & Co Shop Fitters, St. John Street, London. They pioneered non-reflective glass shop fronts, put them in what was Simpsons of Piccadilly, now Waterstones, where they remain in situ today.

Beautiful yarn in an historic building in the heart of a medieval market town.

Goodness, that could be very dangerous having a lovely yarn shop so close by. Get a padlock for your purse. Hope Moss is feeling a bit better now.

Exciting times, a little too close for comfort maybe????

Oh how exciting I'd love a yarn shop close enough to walk to - as dangerous as it would be! x

Thankfully it's a car drive if 30 mins 😉
