new favorite yarn store

[ mood meter -- tired]
[ what i'm listenin' to -- jimmy reid "india"]

i just got hip to a new-to-me yarn store yesterday. it's called the yarn shop and it's in columbus, ohio. actually i went there once before but it was years ago and i was in a hurry so i didn't spend more than about1.5 minutes in there. anyway, one of my best friends and i went there yesterday and had a -great- time. we are both fairly new to knitting (been doing it less than a year) and needed help finding appropriate yarn for patterns. the ladies there were very friendly and helpful. they had so many different yarns, books, patterns, even knitted/crocheted items for sale! we were like kids in a candy store! turns out that i didn't even buy yarn for a sweater i want to make; i raided the binsin the clearance section instead :-) i got about 5 balls of regia sock yarn (can i make a pair of socks from one ball of this stuff?) and about 6 balls of some lovely soft pink yarn called solero. got this for $2/ball. now you see why i LOVE clearance bins! i think i'll use this to make some pretty pink socks for my nieces. and maybe a pair for me!


  1. You need 2 balls of Regia for one pair of adult socks. It's one of the things that ticks me off about most sock yarn, but they do turn out beautifully.

    I've been to that LYS! They had a great selection of sock yarns and were very friendly to me too. I also enjoyed Wolfe Fiber Arts which isn't that far away. I don't get to Columbus much, but those two stores are on my "must visit" list.
