Kitty: Sneak trip to the yarn Store

So what is a girl to do when her husband convinces her that oh I just need to go into the clients site for at most an hour? The convincing argument was then we would go get a nice lunch.

She goes to her local yarn store instead of setting in the car. What else????

My LYS has finally started to get in some summer stock. I was beginning to wonder if they were ever going to get in anything for spring. To my surprise they just started to carry Adrienne Vittadini yarns and they had Celia. What an absolutely lovely yarn. It was so soft it made me think of something my grandmother would have loved a sweater knit out of it. She loved anything that was super soft and they were definitely her colours. :(

They had also picked up a large stock of vintage buttons. I picked up the two to the right I just couldn't resist. A set of 5 old gun metal buttons and two carved bone buttons. I hope they start to carry other vintage buttons. I so have a weakness for old buttons.

I had a blast at the shop, just to bad that hubby took 3 hours instead of the promised 1. I could have spent more time yarn shopping had I only known. Luckily I had knitting in the car.


Thanks Knit Pixie. My lovely Bamboo yarn arrived safe and sound. Look at all that lovely bamboo yarn setting there waiting to be a tank top.
