so i went downtown yesterday with my mom. i’d been wanting to go to the yarn stores that were down there since we moved here last year, but haven’t had the chance because usually it’s more people than just me and my mom and everyone else never wants to go to the yarn stores. ;[ losers. so usually i just go to the one that’s nearest my house.
BUT. i went to both of them yesterday! and i found my people. the girl working there and i were on the same page about practically everything. i finally have people to talk IRL with about knitting yay! but, of course, i bought yarn at both places. i was looking for purple yarn, but i didn’t get any. ;[ oh, well. it’s not like i can never go to a yarn store again. so i will get some eventually!
so at the first place i got some cascade casablanca in colorway 16 vibrant rainbow.
the second place! where i found my people. it’s a smaller store with not as much variety, but man. the people were awesome so i’m pretty sure this will be my main yarn store from now on. plus! the girl gave both me and my mom a 10% discount. i didn’t realize until last night that i paid less than the amount it said on the skein, and i looked at the receipts today when i was taking these pictures and it says 10% discount on it. so <3 to that girl. my mom and i both got madeline tosh sock. my mom wants me to make a demalangeni shawl for her. which will make it my third one i’ve made - one for me, one for my grandmother, and now one for my mom.
she got the colorway 194 nebula. which is a bit more greenish irl.
and i got colorway 159 espadrilles.
