... buy yarn? Why, of course!
As you know, I traveled to Canada this week for work. While I didn't get much time to see the sights, I did carve out a few minutes (literally -- I got there 10 minutes before they were closing!) to visit a yarn store that is 100+ years old. Wow!
It's called Beehive Wool Shop and it's a lovely shop that I wish I had had more time to browse. Fortunately, they were very sweet and let me stay a little past closing. I had a hard time deciding on a "souvenir yarn" (it is so such a thing!) but then I found this:
I cannot resist this color combination -- yellow + orange + red + purple = must have. It's a delicious sock yarn called "Casbah" by a Canadian company called Handmaiden. Check out the label:
Love that it says "Hand dyed in Canada" -- perfect for a souvenir yarn! No idea what I'm going to make with it yet. For now, I'm just admiring the lovely colors.
