Yesterday I went out to Northampton for my first Webs
experience! What an amazing place... a wonderful selection and even more wonderful discounts! The store was having a special Charmed Knits
booksigning event with Alison
, so of course a bunch of us had to go and show our support. They even had cake! It felt good to be in a happy Harry Potter environment, since I just saw Order of the Phoenix the night before and was still a bit traumatized.
I even splurged a little bit and came home with some beautiful yarns!
I absolutely love Jaeger yarns, especially the Siena
and the Aqua
. The Siena is great to use in patterns that call for Rowan 4-ply cotton and the Aqua is a great baby/kids knit yarn. I also couldn't resist the sweet deals on the Debbie Bliss cotton angora or the fun colors of the Artyarns Ultramerino.
The store was giving out little kits for the house colored bookmarks! Too cute :)
This yummy green Jaeger yarn also followed me home yesterday, but it came from Carol
, not Webs! Thank you again Carol! We did a little yarn swap that left me with 16 balls of soft greeny goodness. On the way home I was brainstorming on patterns for myself, but then Scott started throwing hints on how it would be nice for him too.. hmm :)
