Today I went with my grandmother in Mill Valley to visit one of her friends who is also a knitter, and we spent a few hours chatting about japanese yarns, and knitting stores in the area, and the different projects we've done. Quite a lovely afternoon! She recommended we stop by and explore a yarn store that was only a few blocks away, called Once Around, so we did! And oh, boy, am I glad I did. This shop is marvelous! I couldn't believe how comprehensive all their supplies were, which ranged from acrylics and sketchpads, to quilting and rubber stamps. Every imaginable craft supply was there. I just wish I lived closer!
I told myself beforehand I wasn't going to buy anything (by that I mean chanting it over and over in my head..!) but that quickly dissolved when I discovered they were a carrier of Malabrigo yarn (my all time fave), and had a few skeins for only $9. How could I say no?? I finally decided on the teal-green skein below. I also now understand why everyone is mad about Madeline Tosh yarn. I'd never seen or felt it in person until today, and it's now firmly on my must-have list. Anyway, here are some pictures of my adventure in this store! Enjoy! xx
PS. I celebrated 10,000 miles with my vee-dub, Abbey, today! So, I also attached a picture I took earlier of her. And a shot of where I call home. :)
