Delightful Time

... Was had by all. Has requested I drove, since I have the most gas friendly car. The sun shone and the wind that seems to plague the coast lessened. Before we knew it we had arrived. It was like a Yarn Heaven. Delightfully squishy yarn heaven. Granted Church Mouse doesn't carry huge amounts of anything, or a massive amount of yarn. Its the well chosen brands, like Shelter and Rowan. Good stables also, like season acceptable colors of Cascade 220 and my yarn stand by Ultra Alpaca.

However the real reason that Church Mouse is the yarn capital of Washington, patterns. Well organized, and deep. Their selection is fantastic. Not only can you get almost every Fiber Trends pattern ever printed, they publish a staggering number of skillful, beautiful, and simple patterns. All so wearable and in such nice yarns you don't feel so bad about buying a fair of number of them. Also if you're interested Jarrod Flood is a NW native and still feels much love for Church Mouse, thus selling all his patterns and yarn there.

I picked a yarn orange red to make a KAL with some of the knit group.

After we finish the Hat, we'll make one of their great patterns.

To top the day off we had a great meal and then a trip to the fabric store, where I got 2.5 yard of this fabric 50% off!! I plan an easy wrap skirt for it, from S.E.W.
