Yarn Shopping: Marblehead, Massachusetts

Over winter holiday we headed back to the USA to visit family in Massachusetts. We stayed for two weeks so we had ample time to do some day trips. My parents recommended that we head to Marblehead, MA to take a stroll around the historic town and see the harbor. When people recommend places for me to go, the knitter in me immediately does a yarn store search. Lucky for me there was a yarn shop listed on the main shopping street. Yippee!

Marblehead Knits was a cute shop in a lovely location. It was small, but stocked from top to bottom. Like many of my favorite LYSs there was a selection of high end yarn down to budget options. I was happy to see that the higher end items ($20 USD+) were not just the standard Madeline Tosh yarn. I wasn’t quite able to detect the organization of the shop yet, I was browsing so it didn’t matter to me.

So what did I find? Two skeins of Three Irish Girls yarn, which I had heard about before and have not had the chance to see in person. I also picked up two skeins of yarn dyed by a local indie dyer. I found this really lovely shawl pin as well.

Marblehead Knits is a delightful yarn shop to stop by if you are ever visiting the Boston area. Take a half day trip to tour the town, grab some lunch and stock up on a few skeins. 😉

Until Next Time,

  1. I just made it through a week in Portland, Oregon (which has a fabulous number of LYS’s) without buying any yarn because I’m trying to do a number on the stash. Shopping vicariously through you, though. 🙂
