My trips to my local yarn store, Daft Dames are always very fruitful. Last week, I may have bought the most cones of yarn to date. And yet, still less than buying half that amount at the big box craft store.
Sam was the lucky co-pilot on this trip. It takes about 40 minutes to get there (not all that local, huh), but once there, it is like being in your favorite place. Sandy beach with a cold beverage, skiing in Colorado, sipping wine by a roaring fire...nope, not me. Put me at Daft Dames with a helpful assistant to take all my purchases from my arms, allowing for even more purchases.
After 15 minutes of browsing and selecting the yarns for a project I am working on for a friend, I started browsing for me. I love their discontinued yarn shelves and found a very bright orange wool yarn with a twist of yellow (and confirmed it was in fact wool).
Handed that to the gal, to free my arms for one more cone of yarn. Not quite certain what I wanted, I asked Sam, who was across the shop playing Leapster like a true champ, to pick a color.
"Orange and yellow."
Now that is a co-pilot!
