The Gourmet Yarn Co

Color. One of my favorite things about yarn.

I love love love these bright happy colors. They're my favorites. No, wait. I think the pastels are my favorites. No, um, maybe it's the deep foresty colors.....or it could be the.....

My next cookbook purchase.

I know, I know. All it takes is a snappy title. Throw in a couple of sheepies and I'm a goner.

This store is so amazing. The people are awesome. The selection is great. There is plenty of room to walk around. (That's a biggie for me, I get kinda twitchy when everything is too close.) I got to sit down with some ladies the other day and they gave me so many great tips. I have decided that I have to get my projects organized. I need to actually inventory my stash, I discovered the other day that I'm already losing and forgetting about things.

I also learned a lesson about choosing a project and then choosing a yarn. I've been falling in love with yarns and then trying to figure out something that would fit the yarn and my family.

I can't wait to get back there this weekend. I can understand completely why it is helpful to travel to a good yarn store. It may be 90 miles away, but the trip is worth it.
