We had a great day yesterday! We missed you, Meg! Overall I was restrained which is a change! Sarah won the spending spree with some amazing stuff! The day started off at the Naked Sheep which we could have arrived at a bit earlier if Sarah wasn't so anxious and jumped
ahead in the driving directions!
Here I got:
Nature's Palette Sock Yarn in Indian Paintbrush
Inca Gold Superbaby Alpaca and Cashmere in Spring Frost ($24.95 per skein for 50 gr. YIKES!)
Next stop was The Knit Cafe - very cute shop! With a great cafe and very friendly staff! 8 skeins of Koigu Kersti for me for a special secret project!
We had lunch at the Armadillo Texas Grill on Front Street - it was delicious! Next we went on to tackle Romni Wools. Here's I got:
Short Addis in 2.5 mm - they are so short I'm not sure they will even work for me - but it's a tool I didn't already have!
Cute little sheep pouch - not sure what I'm going to do with this either but it was too cute to resist!
Romni is a huge store but completely overwhelming - it is stuffed with yarn. If you know exactly what you want then it certainly is a place to go because they have everything under the sun but if you want to spend time browsing in a yarn shop, to me, it would be frustrating!
We save the very best for the very last! Yes! Lettuce Knit! Megan was there so it was nice to see her and enjoy her shop! There was Fleece Artist sock yarn that I was just dying to have but I exercised extreme self control. However, if I don't get those colors in my order I'll be heading back to Lettuce Knit for the ones I want!
Here I got:
One skein of Schaefer Yarn Anne (this is one I'm thinking about for the shop - excellent yardage and beautiful colors!)
Two more skeins of Nature's Palette in Lupine - again this might be an addition to the shop........thinking, thinking, thinking.....
And an exclusive Lettuce Knit Origami Bag with horses on it! Too cute!
We were met by my husband when we got home and I had my whole haul stuffed in one bag and I said, see I didn't buy much? His response was I know that a small bag doesn't necessarily mean a small amount of money spent to buy what's in the bag. Hmmmm, he's learning a bit too much about this whole yarn business stuff!
I'm up early today which is ridiculous because it's March Break and I don't have to be up this early but I think Fleece Artist and Apple Laine are coming today so I couldn't sleep anymore - the problem is that just because I'm up and waiting doesn't mean it's going to come any faster!
