Dropped off Brandon at work and then headed to Oregon City so that I could attempt to be one of the first ten people in line at Wynona Studios. I was number 7:
|I had two rows started and knit two rows there.|
|All purchases are put into handmade bags - cool!|
|Covered sheep, but the part not covered was pretty dirty|
All About Yarn, I called the shop and asked. They had me stop by, not really a problem since they're a stones throw form the shop. Nothing to worry about and on to the shop:
|They didn't know or have labeled where the fiber came from. I think its from Opulent Fiber Arts. Its a gorgeous burgundy.|
The Naked Sheep shop and was able to park right behind the shop car:
|Blurry pic of the stitch marker and another for scale of the squirrel button|
The Knitting Bee and to use my two gift cards there. Went with the idea that since I didn't have a particular project in mind to buy for and couldn't find any black sock yarn to go with the above yellow went with total frivolity and bought these:
|Used the $5 card for this, just had to pay an extra $3.75 to cover it. Yes, its mainly acrylic but the colors are so pretty.|
|Malabrigo Rastita in Cereza, its a DK weight|
I sat and knit a couple rows and ran into Nori, who came back from Austin Texas to visit and take part in the yarn crawl. It wasn't until I got home and went through my stuff that I found that I lost a $20 bill here. :-( Bit impact for the rest of the yarn crawl. I just had $10 left to spend.
Since it was late, but I still had one more yarn store stop for the day - Kathy's Knit Korner out in Forest Grove. It's owned by Sharon so I got a hug and was tempted by some of her sale yarns but it was outside my budget so headed back to pick up Brandon and home.
Whew! Nine shops with the idea of getting the out lying shops all done so that the next day I could do all the downtown stores.
