Riverside Yarns

so, the man was kind enough to leave a little early to pick up his kids this weekend... which meant i had time to (finally!) stop in to check out Riverside Yarns in Owen Sound, Ontario. 

okay... i admit it... they almost kicked me out for drooling on their yarns.  you have to understand that i've been doing all my yarn shopping online for the past two years.  so being in an actual yarn store, with yarn i could fondle...

i must also say that Colleen was incredible.  what a sweetheart.  she was very pleasant, and not in that fake-nice way, you know what i mean?  she seems very genuine. 

i walked out of there with Knitting Lace Triangles by Evelyn A. Clark, two skeins of Malabrigo sock (one in Indiecita, pictured, the other is in Archangel, not pictured... yet) and a skein of Fleece Artist Trail Socks in the most fabulous reds, purples and oranges.

this is my first experience with Malabrigo sock.  and i am in love.  i proposed to it, but it (oh so softly) turned me down and suggested we commit to each other in a different way... she would be willing to live with me for a long time in the form of a Holden Shawlette.  i agreed.

now... on to the quick and flash-ridden yarn pr0n.  hey... pr0n is pr0n, right?  ;)

I went into the LYS here in Nov/Dec for the first time since moving here. I didn't get that warm fuzzy feeling, but I did buy yarn, LOL. I've wanted that book too!
