My next door neighbor sold his house. This showed up on Saturday:
And here is what was left this afternoon:
Sooo, after that little suburban trauma let's go visit a yarn shop, shall we? (spoken in a Mister Rogers voice--click the link, I beg you) I took these photos when I was in Miami over Christmas. I visited my former boss and good friend, Anneke, at her new location. Here, pull up a chair and sit a spell...
If you look closely (go ahead and click on the pic), you'll see not one but TWO cats sleeping in their kitty pi beds. They're Gigi and Purl, my feline godchildren and most favorite calicoes in the world. I *sniff* helped name those girls when they were just itty bitty rescue babies. Okay, okay...let's move on to the hard stuff---YARN.
This is another room that houses the Great Wall of Noro, as seen on the right. Look around, you'll probably see a few knitted/felted items made with Kureyon, a Colinette throw and something I finished from Simply Beautiful Sweaters lurking about. Oh, yeah, there's a lot of Tahki/Stacy Charles on the left.
Hmm...I think there's some Prism around here, somewhere, cleverly color coordinated. This officially makes you a 'Cubby Scout.'
Yes, Anneke even lets me play shopgirl behind the counter (her hand is guarding the till..) There's a whole other room full (and I mean full, people) of needlepoint canvasses and fiber, plus the usual wall of addis, clover, notions and whatnot. This is where I got 2 of my skeins of Tilli Tomas for Sahara. And some Malabrigo, and Debbie Bliss, and Colinette...
Anneke hasn't heard the siren song of spinning and I understand. Really. In the meantime, I'll just have to earn another badge every time I visit her.
I will not be maudlin and torture you with endless photos of my dead pets, but I did find this one of Neko. He was facing the neighbor's house...happier times for all of us.
