Visiting Yarn Shops

Last Friday, several of my knitting friends decided to visit Mermaid's Purl in Wickford, RI  for her new shop opening.  She moved over one street to a much bigger shop.  There's lots to choose from, but, I couldn't really look around too much due to the crutches.  This is a shop I didn't usually go to, but, plan to visit again in the future.  

I've been seeing the Three Color Cashmere Shawl  being shown on podcasts for a while and it just didn't really appeal to me.  There was one on display in this shop.  I loved it and bought the yarn in the same colors it was knit in - pale pink, silver, and dark gray.  No set plans are in place as to when this will get cast on, but, I had to buy it.  :)

Right now, I need to finish "Sail", and start two sweaters.  Indigopie and Tappan Zee are both bagged and waiting.  Of course, there's two November socks planned as well.  One is plain vanilla and one patterned.

Another visit to Driftwood Yarns in Mystic is also in the very near future.  Right now, I don't plan to go to the New England Fiber Festival.  If my foot and back are doing good, those plans might change.  It's two weeks away.
