Throwback Thursday: Los Angeles

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.
