Announcement: I just went to my VERY FIRST yarn store!! I have bought yarn at Walmart, thrift stores, online (Smiley's), Michael's and Hobby Lobby (the last two only when we're in a town that has them - we don't at home), but I have never before been in an honest-to-goodness yarn store. It was sensational. Ahhhh... I touched almost every skein in there! I even held a $75 skein of yarn. That felt a bit weird, I tell you. I also walked out with a small bag of yarn and am thrilled. This afternoon I'll start casting on for Miss Moppet's winter coat (just like the green and white one I made recently, but no stripes involved in hers, just the self-striping the yarn will do).
I just had to share my excitement! I wish I could post pictures, but I can't until we get home. Soon!
