La Droguerie

A little trip to Paris last week. And for me, going to Paris means visiting and shopping at La Droguerie, my favorite haberdasher's shop. They have their own production and dyeing of great quality yarns. In this wonderful shop you can find quilting fabrics, Liberty fabrics, all sorts of threads, buttons, beads, ribbons... as well as catalogues with their great patterns for children or adults.

I remember when this shop was created in 1975, I was one of their first customer and so happy to find cashmere yarn, out of which I knitted a sweater for the one who became and still is my husband!

Coming back to Athens I started knitting a little jacket for my 3 years old grandson.

I am as well progressing my giant hexagon quilt top : pictures in my next post...

  1. Looks like such a lovely shop to spend lots and lots of time in! Your house in France looks beautiful too. I wish I could rent it and live there for a while. Enjoy your little grandson. They grow so darn fast! Mine is already 10 years old and nearly as tall as I am. Joyful knitting Christine.
