A Coffee and a Yarn is located in Newtown, an awesome suburb of Sydney (and lucky for me, walking distance from where we stay for Christmas break!)
It’s a wonderful afternoon to walk around Newton… and when you do, you can check out all the cute shops, and then stop in and treat yourself to a yummy coffee and some yarn! I had a latte (my Australian drink of choice… since I’m actually an American who likes milky coffee), pictured at left. Isn’t the decoration pretty?
Since I visited in the Southern Hemisphere summer, the lightweight and plant yarns were center stage. Perfect time to start a lacy silk shawl or cute little linen tank top.
The store is beautifully organized to encourage sitting, chatting and knitting or crocheting. There are a number of tables in the center, surrounded with seats. And, each table has an adorable container of spare needles and yarn so you can get your swatch on if you left your project at home.
So, if you’re in they Sydney area, put this little shop on your stop!
