the owner was very helpful in guiding me to beginner's spinning fibre, already in skeins and ready to spin. the colours were delicious and i settled for "camoflage" my typical colours of emerald & lime green, and chocolate, and also "toffee" a wonderful mix of rasperry, light yellow, and brown. i also left with 14, yes 14 skeins of yarn (lots of lamb's pride wool/mohair, some spun wool/flax tweedy yarns, and some cotton fleece - cotton/wool), for personal projects, as well as for the upcoming fall designs for our shop. it couldn't be helped, but i did promise myself that this was THE LAST yarn excursion - that i have to use up most of my yarn stash before buying any more. we'll see how long that lasts.
must send a shout out to my friends marce, lola, and yukiko for indulging in my addiction.
