My first trip in a LYS!

I tried again and went by on Thursday evening.

I honestly was a little disappointed.  The yarn didn’t seem to be much nicer then what Michaels carries and they color of everything in the store was pretty much within the same family.  The one nice thing is that the owner dyes and spins her own yarn, and there were really good prices on that stuff.

My children and I had a good time walking through the very tiny shop petting all the yarn.  So it was fun.

Since the owner volunteers for my DH’s ministry I kinda had to buy something.  So I walked out with a set of size 8 bamboo knitting needles, and some hand-dyed rayon yarn.   The yarn colorway is called “Berries and Ivy” and I got 230 yards of it for 7.95.

I realized that I am spoiled to shopping for yarn online.  Some project suggestions would have really come in handy.

I think that this yarn will become a pillow.  I’m looking for some new bedding and the colors would go perfectly in our Master Bedroom.

Oh, I can’t forget the picture of my purchase! lol
