I'd be safe and warm, if I was in L.A.
(The Mamas and the Papas)
Almost one year ago today I was in Los Angeles, California celebrating a friend's birthday. In between the partying and museums, I managed to sneak in a visit to a yarn store. Lucky for me, our Airbnb was about three blocks away from a fabulous LYS, The Altered Stitch.
Have a quick look around:
Although I wanted to buy the whole store, lucky for me, they had a sidewalk sale where they had beautiful yarn marked all the way down to a dollar. $50 bought me some gorgeous skeins and an issue of Vogue Knitting.
I bought four skeins of Hachito by Mirasol Yarns. It's an 80% wool, 20% nylon superwash merino wool blend.
I'm not sure what the colorways are, but they're gorgeous aren't they? I'm not sure what to make, but a quick search on Ravelry yielded some ideas that I'll share on this weekend's Showcase.
Next I bought two skeins of Delicious Yarns Taffy in Butter Cream, a creamy white superwash merino with splotches of pink and brown. They're from Valley Village, California, the area where we were. Yay for local yarns!
And then I found two skeins of 100% silk from India, Duke by Silkindian. It was originally $29.75, and I scored them both for $5.
It was an adorable store, and I highly recommend it. I hope to return there, and to Los Angeles sometime in 2017.
