While we may not have many yarn shops in RVA, they are overflowing with them in Northern Virginia.
This event is going to be a pick three, where we will hop from shop to shop to purchase yarn. The easiest way to do this is to pick shops within access to the DC metro, making it easy to travel throughout the city.
On this tour we will be visiting the following:
Fibre Space in Alexandria, VA
Looped Yarn Works in Dupont Circle, Washington DC
The Knitting Loft in Capitol Hill, Washington DC
In regards to driving, my idea is to meet at the Target across from VCC and park on the outer reaches of the parking lot like we did for the road trip to Williamsburg. Anyone carpooling can get together there and there is easy access to I-95 from Sliding Hill Rd. We will park at the Franconia-Springfield metro station (parking is free on the weekends) and head into the city from there.
If you have any ideas on where you'd like to take in lunch or want to go somewhere else in the city please voice those ideas in the comments as well.
