I have Yarn-dar!






Today I geeked out with Jas, AKA Artsygal, yarn handpainter extraordinare. First we kettle-dyed some merino sockweight. Then we went by Twist, an LYS on the NE side of Philly. Silk was 40% off... yikes, what's a girl to do? I got some light purple to make a summer cardi. On the way there, I spied a yarn shop that Jas had somehow never seen. She declared Yarn-Dar my superhero talent. We then ventured off to the High Meadow alpaca farm in New Hope. We each scored a fleece for $40. Mine is 4 lbs, hers 5.6! After that, well, there was no way to end the day without a stop at Coldstone. :)

They are so cute!!! I love the alpaca crossing sign you sent me. Sounds like you had a good time.

Gee, when I get around to blogging, some of my photos are going to look suspiciously similar to yours. I wonder how THAT happened!
