Julia and I paid a little visit to New Bern's lovely local yarn store, "Weaver's Web."
New Bern is known as an artistic community, and a truly elegant yarn store, complete with weaving looms and weaving lessons, is a delight to find.
Oh, and just as a random extra, speaking of prices: on Saturday I went to the mall to purchase a certain unnamed undergarment. Went to J.C. Penney's because that's where I'd found it before. Sure enough, I found it for $19. (Last time I bought it on sale for about $15, but that's neither here nor there; $19 is evidently the normal everyday price.) When leaving the mall by the Belk's exit, I decided to stroll into their foundations department and check to see if they carried the same garment, and check its price. Are you ready for this? Exact same garment, same packaging, even the same little price sticker in the corner ... but it cost $31! My word! That's inexcusable mark-up, and if a customer is stupid enough not to compare, she deserves that $12 of pain. It pays to shop around.
