Entrance to the alley for Mrs. Hudson's Yarn and Teas

This is the 4th and final post about the Eastside Stitchers' 2012 Bellingham LYS Crawl. 

Post 4

Mrs. Hudson's Yarn and Teas
1106 Harris Avenue, Suite 103
Finnegan's Alley
Bellingham, WA 98225

Our final stop on our mini-lys crawl in Bellingham last Sunday, September 23, was to Mrs. Hudson's Yarn and Teas.  This shop was hidden away in a little alley of stores.

We made one wrong turn, but then found the right place.

First impression:  CUTE CUTE CUTE

There are all of these kid's toys,

 and posters on the walls, and the window display was of a "bus" full of toys on the way to school.

The feel of the shop was homey, warm, and calming.  Again, there were yarns that were new to me.  And again everyone in our group went crazy over the yarn.  The biggest hit was the Swans Island Natural Colors

Wow, it felt amazing, and the colors were just lovely.  We spent a long time just petting it.  I had completely finished shopping for my list, and was M-A-Y-B-E looking for one skein of something variegated to give as a gift to my niece who has just learned to knit, so I did not buy any.  I feel like I deserve a medal for my self control.

There were a other yarns there that I spent a long time eying...

Like this Be Sweet, Simply Sweet Whipped Cream:

The Starry sock yarn by Dream in Color:

And Spincycle Yarns, which is a local Bellingham spinner and dyer:

There was a wonderful Tea Room

with a sitting area with books you could read!  Also there is a small area with kids' books and toys, in case you bring your children, and want to keep them happy while you shop.
Friendly, knowledgeable staff rounded out the offerings.

Also, a poster of RDJ.


Stay safe and well.
