Stash Saturday - LYS Visit!

Of course, even on vacation, I have to visit an LYS....This one is in Winter Haven, FL..and I visited it the last time I was here....they have changed the store around since then...So here are some pictures from Four Purls...I would recommend visiting, if in the area...they are super friendly and crochet friendly!  Some great yarns, but mostly Cascade and Berrocco products...










It's a lot more open.  There is a large seating area, with many chairs..and there were several locals sitting, crafting and chatting..some left while we were there and others came in...

So I went there specifically to get a "just in case" yarn.  I think I might run out of yarn on the sooper sekrit project..so had to get a backup yarn....

But what else did I get?

The grey is the emergency yarn, it is LaJolla Baa yarn in Grey Onyx

A Crazy Zauberball in Holly Blue...I've seen this used on some amazing socks!

A local dyer is the green and purple...Twin Mommy Creations

And then two balls of Louisa Harding Jasmine for a Nerd Wars project....how about some sparkly, bright green fingerless gloves?

A few things for my swap partner, two magazines, and a new project bag finished my purchases...

Lastly there was this..

I loved this scarf made out of Art Yarns.....and loved the color on the right, the greyish green.....but it was a just too expensive at the moment, but I'll keep it in mind....

Looks like a fine shop! Remember, if you buy yarn on vacation, it isn't stash. It's a souvenir.

Oh my goodness I want it all! That shop looks amazing.. I admire you for your ability not to buy everything.. Hope you're having a wonderful vacation!

I LOVE looking at yarn. But it is often so expensive in these little shops. I feel like a miser fingering gold touching all of the pretty coloured balls of yarn and imagining how they could be used!

You know I still haven't been there yet, but I have bought yarn from her at events here in Orlando. She has a food truck (yarn truck) that travels around too. I am glad you had a fun time in Orlando. I haven't been to Disney in a couple of years but Epcot is definitely my favorite.
