The Shop on Blossom StreetIt could be that Blossom Street got its name because of the abundance of colorful flowers that fill the street. Or, maybe because it’s a place where new businesses bloom and big dreams are cultivated by entrepreneurs such as Lydia Hoffman. She couldn’t imagine opening her shop called A Good Yarn, anywhere else. For her it is the realization of a life-long dream and a symbol of making a fresh start, free of cancer. Step inside. You’ll love hanging out in her store framed with cubbies filled with yarn in every color and texture imaginable. They are offset by many extraordinary creations knitted by Lydia to inspire shoppers and remind them of what’s possible. For Lydia, knitting began as a way to take her mind off her cancer treatment and from there it became a creative passion she loves to share with others. She offers weekly classes for beginners and knit-ins for the more experienced. That is how she meets three very different women, whose lives become interwoven in unexpected ways.
