I recently had a little mini shopping spree at a yarn shop in Bethesda, Maryland. The yarn selection felt rather exotic compared to what the yarn shops in Cork City carry and boy do they have a wide selection of notions, buttons (not like Cork Button Factory though), and accessories (markers, holders,…). After my purchase, they offered to wind the yarn into cakes. Not the best wound cakes I’ve ever had but they held up to transit back to Ireland so that’s what counts and it’s easier for me to re-wind from a cake than hank anyway. Here are photos of the shop and the yarns my Dad treated me to. Yes, Dad came along!
And here are close-ups of my new pretty yarns! The two sock weights are Madeline Tosh Sock Yarn in Lettuce and in Robin’s Egg and the Worsted is Blue Sky Alpacas Multi Cotton in Spearmint.
Have you been yarn shopping lately? What goodies did you bring home?
