It might not surprise you to hear that I brought yarnie souvenirs back from my trip to Minnesota.
Check this out:
This is Shepherd Sock from Lorna’s Laces in a special colorway called “Minne-Toe-Ta” that I loved immediately when I saw it in Needlework Unlimited. Don’t think it is available anywhere else so of course I had to have it. Isn’t it fun?
And here is a skein of Kauni that was calling out to me the entire time I was there. In order to make it shut up, I had to buy it.
I’m thinking this will make a great shawl.
I got some more stuff, too!
My friend Keri of 3AM Enchantments came down to see me on Sunday and she brought me a Petite KIP Bag:
And inside was this:
Keri is dipping her toe in the colorful waters of handpainting yarn and she did this colorway with me in mind, I bet. I think she has a good idea of my favorite colors.
She brought a few more skeins to show me and because I was lusting over this one, she kindly let it come home with me:
And because she is just an all-round generous person, she also offered me this skein to give away to one of you.
Who wants it?

Lucy has settled back into the routine of having her Momma home now. In fact, she seemed kind of pleased to walk me to the door and send me off to work this morning.
A girl needs her alone time, you know.
