Another Yarn Excursion
(Sorry pics are a bit dull - it's been raining all day) This is how it looked while driving today
Today, after finally getting my car back from the dealership for body work...I went yarn shopping. I was stressed and it relieves my stress...Just got some more stressful news, so might have to yarn shop online (there goes that yarn diet - see I'm bad with diets - any kind) So I picked up these lovelies at Country Yarns in Wallingford. It was a different kind of shop (one of the ladies asked me to be kind) I really don't have anything bad to say, except there was a bit of an odor. But it has been either rainy or humid, so it's been some nasty weather, which could produce a musty odor....The store went on and on....there were many rooms and they were STUFFED!!! With LOTS of yarn. All the ladies were helpful, there were several. There were chairs all over the place to have a seat, spinning wheels, books, magazines. It was a bit disorganized looking, but they seemed to know where everything was. We spent some time looking for a gorgeous button I loved. One of the ladies cut it off the cowl I had seen it on and then we found the tube. That's how helpful they were. I picked up - new to me - yarn four skeins of Sublime. It's produced by Sirdar, but can't seem to find a link for it. It is a merino/silk/cashmere blend and heavenly!!! I also got a skein of Feza Nirvana. It is bamboo - so soft. Then, the button caught my eye, but I liked the yarn in the cowl, too. So I picked up two skeins of Nashua Paradise in Lavendar. It was a lovely day!
