There’s a yarn shop in Abilene . . Yarnies. Until yesterday, I knew it was there, I had been by there once but had never shopped there. I decided since I had a little time yesterday, I would run by there.
Oh . . remember I said I wasn’t going to buy yarn for a while .. I meant .. after today I wasn’t going to buy yarn for a while. Are we clear on that? Most all of the yarn I have ever bought has been purchased online without the benefit of seeing it and feeling it so it was an amazing experience to be able to see it and feel it and match colors without having to rely on my computer monitor and hope the colors were correct.
They were having their Second Anniversary Sale. The lady who owns the store was very nice and very helpful. Since I only knew of a couple of projects that I wanted to get yarn for, I didn’t buy too much.
This one might work for another Wingspan.
When looking at the Dreambird projects on Ravelry, I’ve loved the ones that use the Noro Taiyo Sock for the feathers. I also bought the solid which is a teal, maybe for the background. The background really can’t blend into the feather fabric. I’m not sure if this teal is what I want or not but it’s a start.
I think I like this feather yarn better with the dark green background.
This is the same Noro Taiyo Sock in blue with a dark blue background. Another possibility.
I like this pink too . . also a Noro Taiyo Sock yarn. It’s with the green background here but I’m thinking maybe I’d like it with a very dark brown background.
Lots of choices .. lots of yarn . . and it’s very nice to have such a nice yarn shop in Abilene but I am thankful that it takes about 1-1/2 hours to get there and I really don’t know my way around Abilene so hopefully I won’t be going over there too often.
