Yarn Garden - Littleton, NH - Holly Hat - Pattern #13 60 Quick Knits from America's Yarn Shops

 The second stop on our virtual Shop Hop through 60 Quick Knits from America's Yarn Shops is Yarn Garden in Littleton, NH.  Their pattern is Holly Hat knit in Cascade 220.  This adorable beanie designed by Paula Herbert features a darling applique of holly leaves and berries.
Yarn Garden, in Littleton, New Hampshire, is a warm, friendly shop, with a great selection of yarns.  They are celebrating their fifth anniversary this November!

Susan Smith and Paula Herbert opened the shop the fall of 2008, only a month after deciding to embark on the venture.  Both women were teachers worrying about sons in the military, so they created the shop to be a feel-good haven for themselves and their customers and it has continued to be just that.  
Now they have both retired from teaching and are developing their website for on-line sales.  Their staff, Katie Rose Siggins, Casey MacMillan, and Laurie Despins, are inspirational teachers who cheerfully help customers throughout the week.
