Yarn Shopping

I had fun buying yarn today. The first stop was SweetGeorgia. There are four new Party of Five kits coming in March. 
Mrs. Crosby has introduced four new colours. These will be arriving in all yarn bases by the middle of February.
New kits from Prism. These are Merino Mia. The yarn is slightly thicker than fingering weight and slightly thinner than sports weight. We used one of these kits for our store sample of So Faded.

Another new kit coming from Prism. Laura Bryant (who makes the most amazing colour combinations) is going to make us up some great colour ways.

Freia Fibers has introduced two new colours. We will have them in Shawl Ball, Lace and Bulky.

I’m very excited about the new mini skein kits from Anzula. These will be coming home in my suitcase.

I’m back in the room after a great dinner with Barry and Heidi from Trendsetter Yarns. Fontelle who owns Great Yarns in Everett, Washington was with us as well. Dining together at TNNA has been a tradition for over 20 years. We ate at Carsons Kitchen. It is a very small, very trendy restaurant in downtown Las Vegas. Thank goodness we had a reservation - the wait was close to two hours. The food was great.

I totally forgot to get a picture of Fremont Street as we walked by. This is from the cab. I think he took driving lessons from Mario Andretti. We got back to my hotel in record time.

It’s not even 10pm and I feel like it’s 2 in the morning. Time for bed. I’m going to be busy buying more yarn tomorrow.

I think we once had the same cab driver in Naples, Italy.

I have a hard time yarn shopping because my vehicle is never big enough to bring it all home. I need a train siding if I'm going to have it delivered. It's tough.

I am shopping at a trade show for yarn shops. The show is twice a year. Once in January and once in June.
