Since I have not been knitting for that long, I have never actually been to a knitting shop. Well, until Saturday that is! I went to a knitting shop for the first time (okay, second, but the first time was like two years ago, so that was before I even cared) and I absolutely fell in love. I didn't even think to take my camera to the shop, but I definitely am next time! Here's what I got :)
The shop was this adorable little place called Knitting Temptations and I fell in love at first sight! I was in awe as soon as I walked into the store and saw all of the colors decorating the walls. Then, my mom took me into this little nook off of a the room that had all of the knitting books and it was the sale room! I ended up getting three skeins of light blue yarn for a pillow that I'm going to be doing a knit-a-long for in July. Can't wait for it!
My most exciting find was this yarn! Not only was it already on sale, but these two skeins were in the onsies/twosies bin (where the skeins either only had one or two left in that color) so it was 10% more off! I didn't even know what I would make out of it, I just knew I had to have it!
I've never used this yarn before either, but I know I can find something to make. I'll probably end up doing a cowl that I found on ravelry. The only problem is I'll have to wait so long before I can actually wear it :( Oh well, it will definitely be worth the wait! But in the mean time, I am for sure visiting Knitting Temptations in the near future! It is so cute and I'm going to remember to bring my camera so I can show all of you how amazing it is!
And that's how I found my new love of yarn shops! Do any of you have a favorite knitting store? I'd love to hear all about it, so don't hesitate to share!!
