Our first stop was at Natural Stitches as shown in the above photos. The first photo is an entire wall of Cascade 220!!! Isn't it great? I just love to stare and wonder what color I like best. I could have spent the whole day there but I got hungry and it was lunch time. Food gets important as I age :)
The second yarn store that we visited was Yarns Unlimited in Sewickley, PA. This store has quite the collection of yarn as well. My sister and I have been going to this store for years....(I want to say a decade, but not too sure.) So when I enter this shop it is like visiting an old friend.
I ended up buying fingering weight yarn for some shawls designed by Romi Hill. I think the year 2012 will be the beaded shawl year, eventually! I bought lots and lots of beads at JoAnn Fabrics. I am ready. Now to just finish up my other projects that are on my needles. Of Course I did buy some Cascade 220 for another sweater and some sock yarn. Overall it was a great outing and I am not shopping for any more yarn any time soon (so I say now).
