Sponsor: Frivolous Fibers

Sanguine Gryphon has been kind enough to help us out with a blog about Frivolous Fibers, in St. Michaels, MD!

Frivolous Fibers is in St. Michael's, which is a really charming little Eastern Shore town a lot like Annapolis, only smaller. It's right on the main drag along with all the other cool antique, clothing, and quirky object shops.

The shop itself is split, with the yarn at the back and local art/crafts at the front, so you can drag a non-knitter with you and not worry that they'll be bored. They carry a very nice selection of standard essentials, like Debbie Bliss, Noro, Louisa Harding, Brown Sheep, etc., as well as a huge quantity of Blue Heron handpainted yarns, as Blue Heron is local.

There are also gorgeous crocheted shawls made by one of the owners, a vivacious Latvian woman, and all sorts of interesting patterns and kits. The staff is very lovely and helpful and they offer a variety of classes.

It's particularly a great summer yarn shop, because that's when the tourist season is booming in St. Michael's, making it more fun to look at yarn and then go get an ice cream. A yarn shop visit that's easily disguised as part of a family outing to the Eastern Shore. Here's their site:
