Stash Enhancement

I've had a good weekend, even though it has seemed way too short. I'm getting ready to make some stitch markers... the hubby is rearranging the kitchen cabinets, I don't know if that is a good thing or not. LOL

Yesterday I visited a new to me yarn shop, A Row of Purls Too. She has another shop that is called A Row of Purls.... I now have a new almost local favorite yarn shop! It took me about 35-40 min to get there from my house. But it was a lot of back country roads so it's a nice drive. And that is no further than traveling down to south Myrtle Beach to get to the AC Moore & Michaels.  It was a nice little shop with a good selection of yarn. She also sells some local fiber batts that a few of her customers make & Ashford spinning wheels. Imagine that! She sells THE ELIZABETH wheel that I want! :)


Of course I couldn't go to visit a yarn shop without purchasing something... so I came away with 2 small purchases, one ball of Super Soft cotton & one ball of  Yarn Cloud bamboo. I had no idea that I could throw bamboo in the washer/dryer! Soooo, we're gonna try some for washcloths & see what happens!

And here is a photo of the great fiber that I got last weekend from Stony Mountain Fibers with Chan. These are all Merino Wool.

And I got one 4 oz. braid of Merino/Silk blend. She had awesome prices so I stocked up! LOL


And finally, this is what I'm spinning at the moment... Cherry Sorbet merino that I purchased from The Lakehouse Loft a while back.

Okay, I'm off to the stitch marker factory! Hope everyone is having a good weekend!

I'm so glad you've found a nearly local shop you love!!! Can't wait to hear how that bamboo does as a cloth...
