So, I went to Holland today to look at a 1/2 size sewing machine that I thought I might like to have...no, it wasn't what I was looking for. However, I did find two really nice yarn shops over there...
and of course I couldn't leave either one without a little something...
from Lizzie Ann's a skein of Knit One Crochet Two Ty Dy sock yarn in color #1364,
Rowan brochure with some awesome sweaters...a knitter can always use a little inspiration right?
Friends of Wool another skein of Ty Dy sock yarn in color #1745...cause a knitter always needs a couple more skeins of sock yarn!
Berroco Comfort to make a Frog Prince, cause I just gotta have one of my very own. I just don't want it in a size HUGE like the one I tested out a while ago with worsted weight yarn. The Comfort is a DK weight and I think will crochet a nice size frog.
and I just have to say that the City of Holland certainly knows how to do things for visitors. A public potty w/tissue and soap was a really nice touch - along with free parking. Thanks!!! I'll certainly be visiting again.
Now I think I'll throw on a sweatshirt and head to the basement. The Saint is re-loading shells down there and I have a White Model 77 waiting for some tlc. Don't look for me for the rest of the day, I'll be cleaning, oiling and adjusting til who-knows-when. Then tomorrow I'll be sewing quilt blocks all day...I hope.
