Betsy Eyre’s Knitting Corner and Beadery has been in business for 11 years. For Eyre, the best part about owning a yarn shop is creating a good collection of products for her customers and making up the samples to showcase the yarns and beads. She has cultivated a selection of fine yarns from Araucania, Debbie Bliss, Fiber Company, HiKoo,  Louisa Harding, Madeline Tosh, and Misti Alpaca. In addition to the luxury fibers like Louisa Harding’s Grace Hand Dyed and Grace Silk and Wool, Knitting Corner and Beadery carries the staples from Universal, Cascade and Plymouth. Combine a skein with a yarn bowl from locally run potters Rising Sun Earthworks and you will have a nice souvenir of your journey. While you are checking out the beads, yarn, and patterns, your non-knitting companions can browse in Island Books next door. If time permits, head further north to a tasting at Newport Winery.

To spark your creative process, Eyre carries a selection of patterns from Yankee Knitter, Never Not Knitting, Fiber Company, KnitBot, and Sublime. If your knitting bag is down a few sets of needles, she carries Clover, Skacel Addi Turbo, and RI made Serendipity. While perusing the patterns and yarns, if a shawl is in your plans, be sure to look at the shawl pins from RC Handcrafted Jewelry of Provincetown, Massachusetts.

I hope you enjoyed our trip. Next time we will be visiting yarn stores by boat further north in Rhode Island.yarn ball
