Yarn Shopping!

HobbyHubby and the little people accompanied me to the yarn shop last Saturday!
Ooo la la!
As I knit more and read more about yarn and just visit the shop more....
I get to learn about all the different yarns.
If I haven't mentioned it before, I'll mention it now.
I think I'm turning into a yarn snob!
I love wool. I love yarn shop wool.
Much happier than craft store wool.
Happy for knitting, happy for felting, happy, happy wool!
Just this girl's opinion!
A view into the goody bag!
Yarn for Auntie Z's felted bag for Christmas.
3 Skeins of Cascade and 1 skein of variegated Noro.
We'll see if she gets the bag or just a box of yarn for Christmas!
(Time is moving fast this fall and projects are moving slow!)
4 skeins of really HAPPY Noro.
I'm planning happy hat, happy scarf,
&happy fingerless mitts
for Moi!

HobbyHubby picked out this for another hat!

More Noro! Loving it!

Happy Hobbies!

I've turned into a fabric snob (mostly) so I can relate! :) I am almost afraid to step foot into a yarn shop for that reason.

I just started knitting and I know I have a lot to learn about yarn too! I think of the fabric I used to buy for quilting and I just shudder! I've already made the mistake of buying some cheap yarn from Wal Mart. I'm sure it will be good for something but I realized faster this time to only buy yarn I love. It make cost a little more but at least it will get used. I didn't learn until my second pair of socks that there was specific yarn for socks. I need to learn the rules before I break them. Can't wait to see what you make.
