Det var noget af en tur at komme til Tempe Yarn, da jeg skulle med sporvognen i ca. 30 min. og bagefter gå 1 km, men det var det værd.
During the lunch break of Saturday, I just managed to visit a yarn shop! (I returned 10 minutes late........)
It was quite a journey to visit Tempe Yarn, since I had to take the tram for about 30 minutes and then walk about a kilometer, but it was worth it!
Der var både de velkendte mærker som Cascade, Manos del Uruguay og Rowan (som jeg altså ikke købte. Dyrt i Europa => ekstremt dyrt i USA!), men også lokalt producerede og farvede garner, der alle var tydeligt markerede.
The shop was actually really big (and cool! Important in this warm weather....) and held plenty of yarn AND a big table where knitters could sit and knit. All of these are very important ingredients in a good yarn-shop visit!
They have the well-known brands like Cascade, Manos del Uruguay and Rowan (which I didn't buy. Expensive in Europe => extremely expensive in the US!), but also locally produced and dyed yarns, that were all clearly marked.
Som I nok kan gætte, kom jeg jo til at købe lidt. Af det lokale! Som ekspedienten bemærkede, var det nok meget godt at jeg kommer fra Danmark. Så kommer jeg rent faktisk til at bruge ulden!
Alt i alt en virkelig dejlig butik, hvis du skulle komme på de kanter!
On top of everything, they also sell other local products like ceramics and sewn knitting bags.
As you may have guessed, I happened to buy a little. The local stuff! As the seller noticed, it was just as well I came from Denmark. This means I'll actually get to use the wool!
All in all a really nice shop, if you happen to pass by!
