Learning to Knit with the Fuzzy Goat

The Fuzzy Goat Yarn Shop in Thomasville, Georgia | Oysters & Pearls

As you all know, I have a thing for goats.  I grew up with pet goats, and I’ve always loved them.  In fact, one of my life’s greatest disappointments is that we no longer have the Goat Day Brochure from the year I was on the cover with my two pet goats, Billy and Freckles.  (Yes, Goat Day is absolutely a thing. Promote the goat, y’all.)  So instead, I’ll share these pictures (yet again).

This little guy is a goat at Weeki Wachi Springs that I made pals with.

But this big billy goat is Billy (creative, huh?) that I grew up with.  Don’t let the horns fool ya, he was a sweetie.Natalie & Billy Goat | Oysters & Pearls copy

I have goat napkins, and have big plans for a move to the country with my own goat farm.  One day.

All that being said, you can see why I was instantly enamored with the newest shop in Thomasville, the Fuzzy Goat.  It’s a yarn store, and I don’t knit.  Yet before I had even taken a class, I’d been in the shop 4 times and purchased 4 skeins of yarn.  Typical.

A yarn beehive?  I take two.

Why buy that giant chunky knitted blanket off of Etsy when you can learn to make it. At least, that’s my motto.
