I live in Meredith. There is a wonderful yarn shop in Center Harbor 4 miles from here. There is also a shop in Concord, NH which is quite a hike but they have a lot. We also located a shop in Gilford, NH in the same building as Pepi Hermann's crystal shop on Rte 11. They have a lot of yarns from VT and also offer classes. I have a scandiavian sweater in the works - a long time project. In digging through stuff I found I had quite a stash of forgotten yarns so made lots of mittens and hats for Christmas.
