As most of you know, I am not operating America’s Knitting all my myself. If you read our ‘About Us’ page, you will see and learn about all the different contributors. Libbie Hartley is one of those contributors. Libbie’s husband Darin helps out in his own way too, and Darin had a birthday. Also, as you may know, we all live in the state of Washington. Darin got a weekend trip to Hood River for his birthday. Hood River is in Oregon, and is a very popular spot for us western Washingtonians. Darin is a brewer of craft beer (in his spare time), and Libbie is a lover of wine. There are lots of breweries and wineries there in Hood River – there is also a yarn shop.
Knot Another Hat is located in Hood River, and Libbie visits every time she’s in town. She was kind enough to snap a few photos for us on this trip, so we could also go along for the ride! Knot Another Hat is located right in town, but it’s upstairs, so they don’t really have a store front of sorts, but they do have a sign, sandwich board, an elevator, and a view of the river.
Libbie said that when she and Darin arrived, the store was quite busy with customers hanging out and knitting. Sarah, the owner was not there but her employee was there and in good spirits and very nice. Libbie says that Knot Another Hat has a really good vibe and was decked for the holidays with lots of great gift ideas. Libbie did treat herself to a new purse. The store was full of samples, inspiration, and tons of yarn, not to mention local yarns dyed by local artists. The store has wonderful light and Churchmouse patterns!
