    I recently took a day trip from Michigan to Simply Socks Yarn Shop in Indiana. What a fun little store with a HUGE selection of, you guessed it, sock yarn. We had a group of about 12 ladies and made a wonderful day of it!

    I am impressed that all you bought was two skeins. Someday I will get over to the west coast and check out all the yarn stores. :-)

    Bodhi is adorable – it’s good to indoctrinate them into yarn shopping early! :)

    I’ll be in Maine the end of August – so it’ll be The Yarn Sellar, Romney Ridge, Bartlett Mill and whatever else we find along the way and off the way of Rte 1. Oh, and Hub Mills in Mass. Counting…

    I have just been up to Halifax Spinners Mill north of Doncaster and met the charming Paul to drop off my wool stash. It was 20kilo of Wensleydale cross Shetland a dark reddish brown 4-5inches long, and a mixed bag of Shetland ,cream,fawn ,moorit and almost black.20kilo minimum batch means I will mix the Shetland up and end up with 4ply which I can double up if I want double knit weight. Paul is also going to do some lace weight out of the Wensleydale cross Shetland .I don’t allow myself to buy knitting wool as I have to use my stash up of off the self wool in preparation for my own wool arriving let alone what I need to spin up.
