I'm in love...

...with a yarn shop. I've been meaning to check out Kreative Knits and Designs ( for a while now, and I finally did a few days ago. I'm used to getting my yarn at big impersonal stores like Walmart and Craft Canada, where no one has a clue about knitting. So when I went into this tiny store, I didn't know what to expect. But the woman there was super nice, and knew so much about all the yarns she had, which made me feel so welcome and not so confused as I am at other stores. I meant to just go in and get a size 6 circular, but left with some size 13s too, and a ball of Bernat Galaxy in Venus , which I prompltly started knitting up into my Lacy Scarf of Doom (pics coming soon!). I went back to KKD today and bought a set of 12 bamboo needles in a nice case, and a ball of Opal sock yarn in color 1123 , which is amazing yarn, because it's self stiping and makes its own pattern! It's goregeous wool/silk blend...I can't wait to knit it up!
Anyhoo, that's my knitting adventures for today...someday soon I will post my FOs and UFOs!
