According to Chloe, an artist and Kundalini Yoga teacher (I did my international yoga teacher training with her in India), Moab is a magical valley in southern Utah. She must know - she lives there (check out her art, it is magical, too).
Besides her about 4800 people live in Moab and for tourists like us it was a great starting point to see Arches National Park.
And to come back to some food & wool.
We especially enjoyed the Eklectica Cafe.
You can view beads and jewelry while eating breakfast (what about some soy-ginger-seaweed-scrambled-tofu?),
drink organic coffee on their garden patio,
and be surrounded by original art, antiques and collectables.
... even in the restroom.
And, of course, in a nice town like Moab there must be a nice yarn store with nice people!
I just love the name!
The super-friendly owners Cathy and Rosie created a cozy oasis with a fantastic selection of yarns and books. Their knitting nights are on Wednesdays. Their website here.
Very child-friendly, too - one of the owners has a little son.
You just want to sit down, relax and get out your knitting needles.
I still dream of my own rocking chair, that day will come...
