This past weekend my husband and I managed to slip away from the crazy and take a four day weekend. In combination with some errands getting away from the crazy was much needed and so worth it. Being able to visit Grandma and our favorite place on Earth made it even better. Some much needed lake time was involved and lots of fresh air. Of course, I can’t take a trip to Eagle River, WI without heading to St. Germain and stopping at Just Yarnin’. Knowing my love for yarn my husband obliged and we headed to the yarn store.
I was pleased to find that Just Yarnin’ had some amazing dyers in stock that I have wanted to try for a long time, so I did some damage…pure wool piggery. It’s okay though, because while I was a kid in the candy store grinning like a cheshire cat, the shop dog (so cute and friendly!) parked by my husband and kept him occupied! Here’s what I got:
It seems I can’t leave this yarn store without some Knitted Wit yarn (I still haven’t used the skein I bought last year…it’s so beautiful so I want to find the perfect project for it). This time around I got two skeins, both in the single fingering, one in the Hawaii Volcanos colorway and one in the Autumn Rainbow colorway.
Next up is a yarn I’ve wanted to try for a long time: Dream in Color. I got one skein of her Jilly base in the POP UP! Skein Club August 2017 colorway. I love the colors and how soft this yarn is.
Finally I got one skein of Three Irish Girls in the Adorn Luxe base in the Baby I’m a Star colorway. I cannot wait to try this as it is yet another dyer I’ve wanted to try yarn from for a long time!
We’ll see what I knit up with these yarns. They are all so beautiful and soft. Shawls anyone? As for Just Yarnin’ I must say I love this yarn store and the yarns, notions, kits, and help they have to offer. If they were closer to home I’d definitely join in on their knit alongs and classes. If you are in the St. Germain area check it out, it is an awesome LYS! Before I sign off for the day I need suggestions…especially shawl pattern suggestions! Let me know what has been catching your eye on Ravelry (I’m lilwestie there)!
