Today I met Dan for lunch at Panera – yummy! He found a heart shaped chip in his bag – pretty cool –
then I went to check out a new LYS, Madison Wool – at first glance inside it’s a small shop. Very small. More like what I remember Yarns Down Under looked like before they expanded. Michelle (the owner) is very nice and chatty and quite welcoming! She showed me all kinds of neat stuff – she carries things that you can’t get at saybrook yarn, so that’s cool – for variety. She says that it looks like Wednesdays will be knitting “group” but I’m welcome anytime to come in and knit 🙂 Awesome! She has an assortment of ggh – not the too frizzy / funky yarn – but stuff you’d want to knit with! There was also Cascade, Sheep Shop (gorgeous!), Lobster Pot, and a few more I decided to sample:
I got 4 skeins of a great grey-green organic merino / organic cotton blend from o-wool – thinking about a baby sweater / hat set….
The pictures do not do them justice! Each of these are from Blackberry-ridge – there was a simple seed stitch scarf in the shop that was just beautiful! I’m thinking that or one of the multidirectional scarves or argosy or whatever else I can find on ravelry would be awesome!
Great shop – I look forward to potential wednesdays and more shopping!
Tomorrow I’m going up to the hospital to wait with my mom while my dad has his series of procedures done. I think I’ll take the “Hope & Donald” scarf with me – they are his parents, so it’s a way for them to be there too… And maybe one more project just to break it up, I have no idea how long of a day it will be.
