I think that Debbie and I have developed a new sport! It's the act of visiting yarn stores wherever we go, shopping, and then petting our beautiful new yarn that may or may not have a purpose planned for it!
The first picture shows my choices to take home with me. And most of this does have a project in mind.
We visited Stash-A Place For Yarn, Fiber Art Gallery and A Good Yarn. We did manage to find something to buy at each store, but our favorite was A Good Yarn in Sarasota. On my personal rating system, the highest rating is "I would go out of my way to return". That's what A Good Yarn earned! After that, the rating system ends!
The photo above shows the results of Debbie's shopping. As you can see, she is a much better shopper than I am! Both of us mostly buy by color, whatever is pleasing. It's always fun to see what we find! I think we need to schedule some knitting dates in the near future!
Here is the knitting that has been done so far-- I had started the Shift back at home, and continued with it on vacation. The shape might look odd, and I agree it looks odd! But it does end up with a seam in the center back of the cowl scarf, and a downwards point in the front, like a cowboy bandana. The pink yarn on the right is Debbie's, with the start of a baby hat. A very soft and sweet color.
Now, if you ever feel like you want to go yarning with someone, give us notice so we can help!
Hi! I'm Pam! Join me on this journey through the next steps of life!
