|Goodies from Genuine Purl|
On Tuesday, my husband's niece and I went to the LYS down the road from my in-laws' house. Genuine Purl is a regular on my list of yarn shops to visit but I was surprised at the limited selection. The staff was friendlier than normal - that is always hit and miss there. But there was a new sign on the door stating that you needed to check your handbag at the counter. No one asked me and I keep my handbag with me. I bought a balls of Knit One Crochet Too Ty-Dy Cotton and a pattern by Handmaiden for a Wavy Scarf. I need several different needles for a couple of other projects but they only had the Size 11 in the right cable length. And of course I had to pick up the most recent edition of Knit Simple. I asked if sales were ok because I noticed the limited stock and they said that it was fine and the low stock was because a very good Christmas season. After that it was off to the ice cream store.

The day was wonderful and not just because I was yarn shopping. I got to spend it with my boys. And that is the best vacation of all.
