For my yarny friends, here's what you've been waiting for:
It's not a huge stash enhancement, but I did get some lovely stuff--Manos silk blend, some yummy Lang sock yarn, a pattern, and some "Made with love by Grandma" labels. I'm happy. Here's a photo of the shop where I purchased these goodies, London Yarns:
It's not a huge shop, but there was a nice selection and a friendly staff.
The damn wifi is finally moving at something more than glacial speed. We leave tomorrow, so it figures. I'll leave you with a few shots of my completed Celaeno shawl.
Hope you enjoyed your time up in Canada eh? Heee! Sucks about the Internet slowness and I hope you got to Mary Maxim. I honestly lose HOURS in that place. I'm sure there's a rip in the time space continuum.ReplyDelete
Your shawl is beautiful. I love the little bit of sparkle.ReplyDelete
Glad you had time to do some stash enhancement.
The shawl is gorgeous! Love your yarn buys too. I have knitted with the Manos Silk blend before, and I love it! Have a great trip home! It's cooling off here!ReplyDelete
I bought Manos Silk Blend on a trip earlier this year, too. The LYS owner where I bought it in Pennsylvania very cheerfully sold me the 2 purple skeins she had set aside to finish her Clapotis -- she was so bored with the Clapotis, she was delighted to have an excuse not to finish it!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous shawl... love love love that golden color!ReplyDelete
Manos silk blend is one of my fave yarns.
Have a safe trip home.
Not a huge stash enhancement? Silly you. Don't you know it's not the size that matters, it's what you do with it. ;)ReplyDelete
Love the colors in the shawl! :)ReplyDelete
Glad you made it out to one of the great yarn stores! No Philosophy yarn? I swear I am driving up to that farm one day!ReplyDelete
Happy to hear you enjoyed the trip!
