We tried so hard!
As Julie was so kind to point out on her blog, today is my birthday. Taking advantage of the excuse for frivolous yarn shopping, we headed off to Santa Monica to check out a couple of the fun shops we rarely get to visit.
Julie treated me to a delicious lunch and we explored every nook and cranny of a couple of wonderful shops. We drooled over a wall of Koigu, piles of sock yarns, and fondled a beautiful, snuggly Flower Basket Shawl knit using Trekking and Filatura Di Crosa Superior (a cashmere/sik blend that looked like mohair) held together.
But we didn't buy anything. Can you even believe it? We couldn't. Still can't.
We made one more stop on the way home where I immediately spotted Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock yarn in the new color Franklin's Panopticon. Just what I'd been wanting. It was the only yarn I purchased. (Although they had some bamboo that was to die for... not sure I'll forget about soon enough to keep me away.)
And awaiting me at home...
The perfect coffee maker! Yay me!
BTW - Addicted to knitting has some beautiful yarns she's giving away in a contest on her blog. Check it out!
