Recently we spent a day in Columbia, MO. I knew of one yarn store there that we visit each time we’re in town, but on a whim I did a google search and found another one. I only had time to visit one LYS, so the new one won. It’s called True Blewe Yarns and it was marvelous! The selection wasn’t deep but it was delicious. They carried a few favorites, like Madelinetosh, Manos del Uruguay and some Cascade superwash but they also had some new (to me) lines like Holiday Yarns and Three Irish Girls, and I fell in love.
My husband found this yarn. It didn’t jump out at me at first because it’s not my usual combination of colors, but then I looked at the name:
YES! It’s Wonder Woman yarn!! And I do adore Wonder Woman. So this was my first pick. It’s from Holiday Yarns and it will be either a long cowl, to wrap twice, or a shawl/scarf thing similar in size to a Hitchhiker. I had a hard time resisting the Twilight, Batman and Black Widow colors. You can check out all their yarns online here.
Then I had to pick a multicolor skein from Three Irish Girls because they were beautiful and felt good when I petted them. This was the winner.
It’s Adorn Sock in a colorway called Piazza del San Marco and I have no idea what it will become.
I admired this color because…well, purple, but wasn’t going to pick it up until my husband pointed out how nicely it went with my dark purple winter coat. (Oh, yes, I know I’m very lucky to have a husband who helps me spend money on yarn!)
It’s Holiday Yarns FlockSock, 400 yards of fingering weight. Definitely a scarfy-shawl thing.
Then my daughter found these scrumptious beauties and I loved them so much I had to have two! It’s like Malabrigo Rasta only SOFTER. AND you get 109 yards per skein!!
The gray is going to become a big cowl (for ME) and the cream will become a hat with a BIG pompom (for…I don’t know who).
I had to quit after that but they liked me enough that they put my yarns in a nifty tote bag, and that’s happy because what knitter doesn’t need another tote bag??
So if you’re in the Columbia area, I highly recommend you check out this jewel of a yarn store!
Fabulous yarn choices! I think I have a skein of the purple Holiday yarn in my stash. I can’t wait to see what you knit with yours. I need some inspiration.
Oh yes, I can’t wait until it tells me what it wants to be! There are just a few projects ahead of it, though!
