The Plucky Knitters knitting retreat is taking place next week on Bainbridge Island and they will have a shop open to the general public open for yarn during the day on Friday 1-5 PM and 10AM-5PMSaturday.

It’s a fun place to shop, sit, knit, check out knitwear, and enjoy fall in the Pacific Northwest.
