Woolcott & Co. Closing

In case you missed it, Woolcott & Co. is closing.  This is sad, as I’m pretty sure this was the first yarn store I ever went to (I won’t say “stepped foot in” because I’m betting I was too young to walk).  I bought the yarn for my first sweater there.  I didn’t go often, but sometimes I knew that they were going to have just what I wanted.   I love that Boston’s yarn stores really seem to do well at having their own niches, and there will be a big hole left by Woolcott.  They started their going-out-of business sale on Tuesday, and at lunchtime things were already pretty picked over.  I still managed to buy way too much yarn (for my budget) though.  I just couldn’t say no to the yarn that was calling my name when I knew it was the last time I’d ever go there.

    Oh no! What a heartbreak. When I lived in Cambridge I went there all the time.
