We are in Atlanta for the Sitches South show, yesterday we stopped by Needle Nook, a lovely local yarn shop, to pick some boxes up.
We had the opportunity to lunch with the charming Arlene, (the owner of the store and the "owner" of the Arlene's Purple) at a great Thai restaurant that's right besides the store. Thanks Arlene for letting us ship the boxes to your shop, and thanks for all the industry insights you shared.
Arlene made a fantastic shawl out of the Malabrigo Lace in Natural, it is one of the many garments she knitted with our yarns, the pattern is from the Victoria Lace book and uses less than two skeins.

and of course we could not leave without taking a picture at one of the many malabrigo "hotspots" in the store, this one was for the worsted weight
