Puget Sound Local Yarn Shop Tour 2012.
Mom and I hit the 7 store mark in which you get a little LYS Tour pin. :) Not bad for a Friday afternoon and last minute planning. If it wasn't for another blog complaining about this tour overlapping the South Sound Yarn Crawl I never would have known about this tour.
Our original plan was actually the South Sound Yarn Crawl but this tour was a better choice for us. The stores were ones that I would actually probably drive out and visit again whereas the South Sound stores were all pretty far away.
Bad Woman Yarn in Wallingford. This store had a great welcoming attitude. Before even entering the actual store we found what we had been seeking all day...the ideal cardigan for mom. My mom is a crocheter, but she got the pattern and some yarn for another sister to knit up for her. :)
It was one of those stores you could just be in for a long time and there was parking (big deal in the Seattle area).
And she got me this shirt which I am really excited about. If I could pull off a pair of boots like those I might look like that all the time...
Our last store was in the U District area of Seattle and it was about 2pm. I was really have a good time but we both knew it was time to call it and head home.
Between this yarn tour and the online quilt festival all I want to do is finish creative projects (and maybe start a couple of new ones).
In totally unrelated news: Emile is down to 15.8 pounds. This is a full pound lighter than his vet visit in March (in which I heard the many ways I was ruining his health). It hasn't been easy on any of us, but at least we are making progress.
