We almost blew right by this little shop. It was tucked back in a little strip mall and our gps was being a royal pain. It told us to get back on the freeway in order to exit on the street we were already on and go to this shop. What the heyhey, Garmin?? Despite the technical difficulties, we found Hank and Purl's.
The shop was tiny, but sooooo well-kept. Everything was organized, all the shelves were labeled, and the place was clean. All important things for me!! Despite the lack of floor space, the shop did not feel cramped. There were a couple chairs for crafting in, and waayyyyy more inventory than I imagined when we walked in. It was all so well organized, they could fit tons of stuff without it feeling crowded. A+ in my book.
We (aka, I) shopped around for quite some time there. Sailor is a very patient man, I tell you. Maybe it was because we just had gotten done shopping at a farm-toy-store that we accidentally found that he was on such good behavior.
|Hank, sacrificing some wool so Purl can knit.|
|Purl, knitting away!|
On to my haul!!
KnitBaaPurl. I still have a few gifts to wrap and these little tags were sooo stinkin' cute, I could not pass them up. I mean, come on! I want a tree like that in real life!! Yarnornaments!! Yornaments? Yarnaments? Yarn.
So, yeah. Cool store. It is basically the only yarn store I could find in Rochester itself, so if you are ever in that region, stop by and say hullo to Hank and Purl.
Alright. Time. To. Knit. All. The. Baby. Things. And get ready to make lobster tails for the first time. Happy New Year's Eve!!
