I had a Tasty Tuesday post all set to write, and then I forgot to upload my pictures. But I meant to post this last week, so I’ll push everything back.
The weekend before the one that just ended, I flew up to the Northwest to spend some time with my Mom and family. I flew up to Portland, spent a day there and then the two of us drove up to Puyallup, WA to go to the SewExpo. Since I had a full day in Camas, we decided to join in on the Rose City (Portland) Yarn Crawl. There were 18 stores participating, and we made it to four. That isn’t a ton, but both of us were trying to keep our yarn purchases low.
We went to Dublin Bay Knitting Company (a beautiful store!), Pearl Fiber Arts, Angelika’s Yarn Store, and Twisted. I did pretty good about purchases. My Mom bought me this skein of Bamboo Bloom at Angelika’s.
It’s not my normal style of yarn, but I think I’ll make a cowl out of it. Maybe just plain stockinette, but then purling when the big puffs come around.
This was my second trip to Twisted, and I love it so much! I was trying not to buy anything unless I really loved the yarn. And I lost all resolve once we got there. Maybe it was this little face that did it!
A real lamb! It was adorable. I never realized that people banded lamb’s tails. I didn’t know that sheep have long tails naturally. Hmm.
I did buy some Blue Moon Fiber Arts yarns. I got two large skeins of Victoria in color Mossley Manly.
And Socks That Rock Lightweight in Henpecked.
I have a couple skeins of STR at home that I need to use. I saw a beautiful woven scarf on Ravelry using some and now I’m kind of obsessed with weaving a scarf with it. I’ll have to wait until I go back home to use my Mom’s loom again!
We had a lot of fun in Puyallup, but I’ll post about that soon.
