Last weekend I was lucky enough to get to spend some time with my good buddy Lisa (Wickedly Artsy). Among many of the other exciting things that you can read about over at her blog, we found some time for some fiber shopping!
I know, I'm a poor student preparing for a huge move, but fiber is just as important as food right?
First we headed over to Wildflower in Manhattan, Kansas, which has a great selection of Berroco, as well as some yarns that I have not been able to find at any other yarn store. I found some yarn that I have been dying to get a hold of for a while now, two skeins of Mini Moshi (Crystal Palace Yarns) in a muted rainbow colorway:
After that we visited Wicked Stitch in Wamego, Kansas, which is one of my favorite stores because of the amazing fiber selection, friendly people, and adorable location. It took me a little while to decide what to get because of the overwhelmingly diverse selection, but I ended up purchasing two types of fiber that I cannot wait to spin up.
I went straight for some reasonably priced and super soft Blue Faced Leichester. I will likely end up hand dyeing this at some point.
I also couldn't resist buying some Romney wool (which I don't think that I have ever tried before). According to the owner, this is from one of her own sheep, Daisy. I can tell that this is going to be loads of fun to spin up!
Isn't it wonderful the sort of treasures that can be found at yarn stores across the country? If only I could visit them all!
