Today I got a chance to visit a local yarn shop. Can I tell you I just LOVE being in yarn stores? Looking at the yarn, touching the yarn, feeling the yarn. Each one I've visited has its own personality, but each share the same inviting spirit: the come sit down and create something special feeling. I think I spent at least and hour and a half just looking and feeling and thinking and deciding. I finally settled on some yarn: 100% Organic Baby Alpaca and a varigated wool blend. I also treated myself to some bamboo needles.
I asked the attendant if I could take some photos of her place. She happily agreed. Here's just a bit of the store and the lovely yarn I finally settled on!
