I have to say one of my favorite coffee and yarn shops is located in downtown Verona. I love this pig that swings off of the open porch of the cafe, The Sows Ear.
Today, I stopped in to have my Chai Latte and look at all the wonderful new yarns that had in stock. They have some beautiful yarn from South America that always makes me wish I knew how to knit.
I do crochet so I picked up some beautiful soft blue yarn to make an infant blanket. I have directions from the Linus site for a nice little blanket done in chunky yarn with a J hook.
