You know how you see those photos on Pinterest and you’re all, “Ahhh I would just die to go there”? Yeah, I went there.
I was in Wolfville, Nova Scotia for a CD launch and I had a couple of hours one afternoon for lunch and some emailing somewhere in town. Obviously, I found the knitting store that was also a cafe: The Wool’n Tart. I had a delicious sandwich, a knit with some lovely ladies who were really welcoming and friendly, and I left with some yarn. (Of course.)
I asked if there was anywhere else in the area and I was told I should go to Gaspereau Valley Fibres. Did I have a car? No. But I was assured that a taxi wouldn’t be too expensive, as it was only 5K away. Ah ha! Run worthy. It was cold, but a gorgeous day, so I set out.
Golden afternoon sun on the sign to greet me was just the beginning.
As I was leaving, I realized that I couldn’t very well run back with a paper bag full of yarn so I asked if they could call me a cab. The girl working there asked if I was in Wolfville and when I said yes, offered to bring the yarn to me later as she was planning to meet some friends at the local pub.
I should have expected nothing less from this perfect, small town.
As I jogged the 5K back into town, I was sad to miss the knit night (knitting in front of a fire on a farm where the yarn is made? Please), but so happy to be in Wolfville where my boyfriend went to school. It’s not a place that I could move right now, of course, as jobs are tough to come by in the music field, but I would just adore to live in the Valley.
