“LYS” stands for local yarn store in the Internet world. And I have a doozy of one within walking distance of my home. It is terrible temptation. I love it! And I love the ambience of the store. Just being in amongst all that colour and fibre is pure heaven to me!
So I figured the black yarn in Geraniums was too much. I needed an aubergine (dark purple) for the shadows of the leaves. I headed to my LYS to pick up some. This is what I bought…
I have a serious love/hate relationship with this place! I love, love, love many things about it – some of which I told you about above. But my wallet quivers whenever I go in there. I never make it out without buying more than I intended. I always find a use for it, though, so all is well. Sharon, the owner, knows my weakness…beautiful 100% wool yarn, and has been very good to deal with when it comes to special ordering certain colours for my work.
If you ever make it to Regina, SK, I highly recommend you drop in to Golden Willow Natural Fibres on 13th Ave. I am sure Sharon will welcome you in for a chat and to help you find what you want for your next project. It is a small shop, but mighty! 🙂
