Yarn Porn

Got a chance to scope out a yarn store right around the corner from my Sister's house. (Who knew, all these years!)



What a great shop! I didn't meet the owner, but somebody who works for her. We talked for about an hour, she's so nice. My kids ran amuck all over the store, and if she was offended by it, she never let it show. (It's so hard to try to hold a conversation and yell/threaten your kids at the same time!) I enjoyed our visit so much (despite the kids) that I'm going to try to go back and visit without them.

And how I could I leave empty-handed?

I absolutely could not leave this there. I've never, ever felt anything so soft! Whatever this turns out to be, it will live right next to my face.

This is some cheap acrylic, but the colors are outstanding. There was a beautiful little baby sweater knit up in the shop, and if I was smart, I'd have taken a picture of it. Then you wouldn't be saying, "Why did she buy that yarn?". I'm thinking fingerless mittens and a hat. Maybe even for me!

Again, with the sock yarn. Love the colors, though..and bamboo, a new favorite of mine

And I got one of these to replace the cute little ladybug one that Thing Two broke on me. I'm going back to buy what she had left to send out to the RAK board. Too cute! She had polka dot ones, and a cow, and a leopard print one....I'm getting them all!

Now I realize that Webs is not really so very far away from here. 
Must. Resist. Temptation......

  1. The Buckingham yarn looks terrific! Love the color and the shine it has. I've got Marble acrylic yarn in my stash. Made two baby blankets one in blue, which I like best, and the other in pink. I also made a scarf, and for acrylic, it's a nice one.
