Some yarn is purchased with a project in mind, other yarn is about the destination where you got it.
I never showed you the yarn I bought in Florida, did I?
Philosopher and I found the one yarn store fairly close to Chez Philosoparents, which is called Raging Wool. It's a little hard to find, the sign outside--as memory serves--just said "Yarn." It was a nice shop and I rummaged around for a while. They carried the yarns of Rhichard Devrieze, who used to work for Koigu-- and you can tell. The colors feel very familiar and of course are lovely.
I ended up with some Frolicking Feet yarn from Done Roving.
and also a Zauberball that the Philosopher requested as a triangle eventually for him. I'm on a triangle break.
Then a couple of weeks ago I went with my goddaughter and her parents up to Wisconsin for a celebration of the Norwegian Constitution Day. Amongst the beautiful quilt display and incredibly squeaky curds, we found a store that specialized in felted objects. They had some beautiful spinning wheels and a small rack of handspun.
I'm planning on a small cowl/neckwarmer thingy, but we'll see what happens to it once I get back to it. For now it's decorating the stash beautifully and reminding me of a fun weekend.
