mission accomplished !

i feel better already!



i spent part of my day in asheville, nc, soothing my yarni-soul! it was a beautiful afternoon for visiting three yarn stores !

yep, i hit yarn paradise first, then purl's yarn emporium, and lastly, earth guild.

i enjoyed every minute!

notes: both yarn paradise and earth guild carry the rainbow elastic, which is good for those falling down knee high socks. earth guild has a greater variety though, and they do mail order.
purl's yarn emporium arranges its stock by color. though pretty, i find that impractical. i didn't spend as much time there.
yarn pardise also has koigu!

of course, i purchased from all three shops ... that's the kind of ho i am.

click on the photo to read the notes on all the yarns ....


oh! and i got my ravelry invite today. too bad i have all this fresh yarn to play with, or else i'd get sucked into the vortex!

Congrats on getting into Ravelry! I'm there as "labeelady".
Interesting to know about the yarn shops in Asheville, as hubby and I will be heading through there in Sept. for vacation.

Sounds like a good trip. Get sucked into the vortex and post the new yarn in your Ravelry "stash"!

Ohh new yarn! And now you get to add all those lovely skeins into your ravelry stash (a very good excuse for buying even more yarn). :)
