I thought I’d start with more of a bang than this, but … oh well. I’ll get there. (Eventually.)
This weekend was the Puget Sound’s 5th annual LYS Tour, and I participated for the first time … if visiting four out of 25 shops counts as participating! A friend and I met up today, took the ferry to Bainbridge Island to visit my old haunt of Churchmouse Yarns and Teas, and I came back with loot: some Churchmouse Summer tea, granola from Blackbird Bakery, and a skein of Shibui Sock in a bright orange color. Not much yarn, but I’m excited anyway. It’ll be another pair of duck socks for the munchkin when I get around to it..!
Once back on the mainland, we visited Weaving Works (one of my primary LYS), then Bad Woman Yarns and Full Circle Yarns. I acquired two buttons and … nothing else, although I am now eagerly awaiting some Louet Gems fingering weight in a gorgeous light teal color that Weaving Works had only in sport weight. Yum.
