The yarn store was really pretty fabulous. FAB-u-lous!
That's just one wall. The selection was great and the staff was super friendly. I wish I had gotten pictures of two of the sweaters lining the top of the yarn cabinets. One had a huge cat on the front, and the other was a super-duper Cosby sweater. Rebecca and I will no doubt be making/wearing those someday when we tire of beautiful patterns and only want to make insane things. Those sweaters looked pretty old, because most everything in the store was quite lovely and fashionable. Mr. Cupcakes's mom would like all the fuzzy, sparkly novelty yarn for the fancy scarves she makes.
We definitely need to go back--maybe for their sale in July--with our knitter friends Ellen, Angela, and Stef. They had socks in the window just like the kind Ellen has been making.
Maybe Ellen should display hers in saddle shoes, too?
I got yarn for a couple of projects. One is a secret project but the other is for a ribbon tank pattern from the Spring Knitty. The yarn, Crystal Palace Deco-Ribbon, is really cool (or so sayeth me).
It's looking cute in the lavender growing on my deck, but the ants that started crawling all over it weren't so cute. The yarn itself is surprisingly wide.
Should be a fun summer project. Yay summer! Yay car trips to yarn stores!
