Yarn Store Adventure!


Got lots of stuff today! Since it's Spring Break (and Hubbo was home today) I decided to have a little impromptu yarn store crawl. There are two new (okay, one is just newish) yarn stores in Brighton, not close but not super far either, so I decided to check them out. The first was Ewe-Nique Yarns, they had lots of normal stuff. I bought the Noro there, the Crystal Palace Cotton Chenille, and the Addis (trying to fill in some gaps in my collection.) Next I went to Noisy Needles, which is brand new. They have a "Made in USA" attitude, which is unfortunate when it comes to yarn, since so little is actually made here. Pretty much all they had was Brown Sheep, but I did get the nifty little Bryspun circular. On the way home, since I still hadn't found what I went out to get (One Skein) I decided to swing by the Knitting Den in South Lyon (it's on the way home) and found it, along with a nice skein of Trekking to make some springy socks for Emma when I get my deadline knitting done. When I got home, I found the UPS man had come and left me the Big Pink Cone, which is SWTC Amaizing (100% corn) which comes out this fall. It is totally soft and machine washable AND dryable. I have to finish the Amaizing sweater as soon as possible, so I'm getting started right now.

You are totally SWTC's best spokesperson- I am so excited to see some of their new stuff! Thanks for the previews of the new designs.
