Yeah, I found a REAL LYS!!! Doesn't sound too hard, right? WRONG!!! I love Woolbearer's but, it's definitely an hour away. I love their hand dyed yarns and the ladies are amazing. But in between visits i need stuff, too.
Kellyn and I were goofing aroung in Ocean City last week and I found The Knitting Niche. It's sorta back off the street, I had been looking for it for awhile and just never saw it. Vicki (the owner) was really cool, especially with a shop full of Shoobies. She made the time to show me things that were knit in each of the colorways I was looking at. The Knitting Niche has tons of Debbie Bliss (I finally got to touch Cotton Cashmere, it's beautiful and affordable! I can't wait to make something with it!), Noro and Plymouth Yarns. There are a bunch of intresting sock yarns that I've never heard of, in pretty cool combinations. They have classes on Tuesday and Thursday nights, it's $10, you can take whatever your working on, and get help from people with 20+ years of experience. If anyone is intrested in going, I'll email you the phone number. You have to call ahead as there is only enough room for 15 people.
While I was there, I picked up 2 skeins of Noro Kureyon in color 51 and a tiny bottle of Kookaburra Woolwash. I've already started designing a simple Bias Pillow with the Noro, and washed the piece I've finished (pics to come). The Kookaburra softened up NORO, I'm sold! It also smells great, very clean!
I haven't really done much this week, just sat around in the A/C... I'm going to try to fold the mountain of laundry today, maybe i should make some coffee....
