We turned the corner and walked down the parallel street past our fav coffee spot and sushi restaurant and around the corner and past restaurants that reminded us of birthdays, anniversarys and social events of the past year. We realized how different the town was as we walked instead of driving through from point A to B. We came across a historical museum and noticed there was a garden. We wandered into the bricked courtyard and found a beautiful spot in the middle of town totally quiet and completely surrounded by mature trees and plants cared for by the local garden club. I knew about the garden club but didn't know about the award winning garden. It was a wonderful and peaceful discovery and we were the only two people there, which was a strange feeling. Usually, the town is teaming with tourists and locals and the chance of being alone would be pretty slim.
My suggestion today is to walk instead of drive, seek out new places, and re-visit the familiar to find undiscovered treasures and reconnect with your community. Sometimes it's not just about yarn for a knitter. It can be about living life and discovering how new experiences will influence you. It's another great way to influence your next knitting project and grow in your knitting life.
And all this adventure because a yarn shop was closed.
Embrace the power of the universal yarn ball wherever you wander.
