So here's the deal.
On my last trip to California, I visited Unwind. And it was awesome.
And somehow I never blogged about it. Until now.
It's been a while since the trip, but I wanted to give the shop it's proper review. I don't remember as many details as I'd like, but I wanted to at least share the pictures.
The Knitting Nest has a wall of Cascade, Wildfiber has a wall of Koigu, and Unwind has a wall of Lorna's Laces. (I'm pretty sure this is all Shepherd Sock.) So pretty. I was tempted to buy some, but I decided I had enough Shepherd Sock in my stash.
Also, I drooled (but not literally) over this basket filled with cashmere and silk blends. The owners at unwind did a great job of combining yarns in the shop. (Like the Berroco yarns.)
I did buy a skein of this. This is Cherry Tree Hill Limited Edition sock yarn for September 2008. The colorway is "Burnished Berry." Yummy.
There was a friendly group of knitters gathered at the shop. You could tell they were regulars. I wish I remembered their names.
The dog was also a regular.
I was impressed by the ball winder. It's unlike any other I've seen. (See it in action here.)
The details have faded, but the yarn remains. You can see what I bought in detail here.
All my pictures from Unwind are here. I wish I had posted this sooner, but it feels good knowing I did it. If you are a regular at Unwind, please leave a comment and tell us more.
