Have Ewe Any Wool?

Monday, June 25, 2012


The knitting guild I belong to, Purls of Distinction, went on a road trip to Shepherdstown, West Virginia this past Sunday.   We had a fabulous time.   First stop was the Bavarian Inn for their awesome “Sunday Brunch”.   It was absolutely delicious!   They had breakfast food, lunch food, wild game, and German food for the main course and just about every type of appetizer, salad, and dessert you could think of!

The store has a very welcoming ambiance and I love the outside decorations!



What a great group!   What a fabulous store!  The have everything from knitting to spinning and everything in between.   And I just love the displays – check out the “old fashioned carder”! (below left)  Too funny!!!

We ended  the trip at O’Hurley’s General Store – a must see if you’re ever in Shepherdstown.  They’ve got everything from toys and candy to household goods and hand crafted chairs.  It truly is a general store.   You meander through many rooms…each holding delightful treasures of both the past and the present.   I LOVE shopping here– I always find lots of unusual items that I just must have!!  There’s also the resident “guard” cat….greeting us on the way in…and then monitoring us/protecting the goods on the inside!  What a cutie!!!
