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! :)
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.

Lemme see... Last Thursday afternoon I left my house headed across the entire state of NC & half way into VA to see Chan. The drive really wasn't that bad, most of it was highway & seemed to go pretty fast. Once I arrived we had a slight detour to a meeting of Chan's, but it was a good excuse to wear my Lace Cardigan, so I was game. Of course I forgot to get a photo of that one... Then we had a wonderful dinner, Chan will have to tell you the name of the place, I just remember that it was great South African food. We stayed up late with the Knight & the Girls, chatting & knitting.

Here's our new Marine with his nice sized king mackerel. He released him after the short photo shoot.Here is Brant pulling the hooks out of one of the fish we caught. I caught a small shark & one small king that we kept for dinner tomorrow night & we released the rest. We had a few bites that got away too.
Thanks again Brant, it was a great day. We had a lot of fun & it'll make a nice memory after our Marine leaves next Tuesday for more training.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
