Last week (thursday) I ordered from theloopyewe and yesterday (monday) my order was here! Amazing service :) I got two skeins of yarns I have not yet tried out- Seacoast and Duet Sock Yarn - gorgeous!
Today I met Dan for lunch at Panera - yummy! He found a heart shaped chip in his bag - pretty cool -
then I went to check out a new LYS, Madison Wool - at first glance inside it's a small shop. Very small. More like what I remember Yarns Down Under looked like before they expanded. Michelle (the owner) is very nice and chatty and quite welcoming! She showed me all kinds of neat stuff - she carries things that you can't get at saybrook yarn, so that's cool - for variety. She says that it looks like Wednesdays will be knitting "group" but I'm welcome anytime to come in and knit :) Awesome! She has an assortment of ggh - not the too frizzy / funky yarn - but stuff you'd want to knit with! There was also Cascade, Sheep Shop (gorgeous!), Lobster Pot, and a few more I decided to sample:
I got 4 skeins of a great grey-green organic merino / organic cotton blend from o-wool - thinking about a baby sweater / hat set....
The pictures do not do them justice! Each of these are from Blackberry-ridge - there was a simple seed stitch scarf in the shop that was just beautiful! I'm thinking that or one of the multidirectional scarves or argosy or whatever else I can find on ravelry would be awesome!
Great shop - I look forward to potential wednesdays and more shopping!
Tomorrow I'm going up to the hospital to wait with my mom while my dad has his series of procedures done. I think I'll take the "Hope & Donald" scarf with me - they are his parents, so it's a way for them to be there too... And maybe one more project just to break it up, I have no idea how long of a day it will be.
