A new LYS! -Yarnia
Be that as it may, DH, who is the kindest man in the world, knows I hate to drive in the freezy skid stuff, and at this time of the year, there's no telling when falling slush will decide to start freezing, so he offered to drive me to the new yarn store. Kudos and wreathes of glory to him! And kisses all over his face!
The new yarn store is Yarnia. SE 42nd and Division. It isn't flat on Division but kind of sideways in one of those angled blocks. A new concept in yarn stores. They have shelves and shelves of very fine yarn
And I doubt not that their stock will grow as their working capital does. They have cotton and wool and mohair and some alpaca and a variety of synthetics. Some boucles and slubbies, all sorts of single plies.
You select your colors and fibers, and tell the nice people how much you want, and they put the cones of singles on this big industrial size winder, and custom blend your yarn for you. Then they sell it by the pound!
Here are a few cones of yarns already plies up to give you an idea of where you could go with it.
And here is my purchase - wool and mylar (my inner magpie saw shiney and had to have it!) a quarter pounder for $8. Can't beat it with a stick!

Why is it that I can respond to some people's comments and not others? Have I set up Blogger wrong somehow? I am loving all the strokes and affirmation you have been giving me, and I want to thank each and every one of you. May the happiness you give me shine back twofold onto you.
