Yesterday, I met my mom for lunch in Columbia, Mo. After we had our meal and went our separate ways, I hit up a couple of yarn shops in Columbia.
It was a cold, rainy, snowy, gray day in Missouri yesterday, and I think that influenced my purchases. Everything I came home with had some orange in it. I love orange, but everything I bought? I was definitely looking for some sunshine.
First, I stopped at Hillcreek Yarn Shoppe. There was a group of ladies spinning while I was in the shop. Yay! There was also a lot of really fun fiber in this shop. I came away with this 100% wool yarn called “Sunspot” from Universal Yarn.
I also picked up this Bazinga yarn from Plymouth Yarn in “Raz Chocolate.” This one was on Hillcreek’s yarn swap shelf, so someone who had this yarn in their stash decided to get rid of it, and I got a deal on it. One fiber artist’s trash is another fiber artist’s beautiful, wonderful, gorgeous treasure.
Then, I headed to True Brewe Yarns & More. This is another great shop with a lot of different fibers. There was a group of ladies knitting at this store. Again, yay! At True Blewe, I got this beautiful merino wool by Manos del Uruguay in a colorway called “Tigerlily.”
I also got this awesome skein from Three Irish Girls Yarn. It is called “Supernova.”
I can’t wait to get started on pieces with each of these fibers, but they also really make me want to do some dying of my own soon, too!
Until next time,
