On A Mission/SundaySampler/WPC

Quest

I spent a couple hours Saturday on a mission. I was informed by my resident daughter of Lawrence, Kansas that there was ‘this yarn shop’. No more words needed. We hopped in the truck and headed downtown to The Yarn Barn.

Can you see the focus needed when perusing such a delectable assortment of eye candy?

Unfortunately, my focus had to be on the Price. And then there were the color choices running a close 2nd.

My eyes located the clearance bins at the back of the store eventually. (Special thanks at this time for the patience of the family for enduring my inspection of each and every single area of this store.) I found this “Jones” shade and we all instantly thought of my pen pal across the pond with the same surname. Not to mention a “Jones” or 2 we are either related to or dear friends with.

HRH The Prince of Wales. We are fans of those Royals and not just the Kansas City variety. Figured this was my sign from above to go ahead and choose this beautiful shade of teal.

100%Wool, to be washed separately, dried flat and no ironing. Directions to be followed to a Tee. Unless you want shrinkage.

Also in that clearance bin were these additional wools that are simply gorgeous. They are so soft and I absolutely cannot wait to make something special with them!!

Yarn Barn in Lawrence, I’ll be back! The Quest continues.

  2. So fun! I perused a little yarn shop up in Arrow Rock this past spring and it was delightful to all of my yarn loving senses. I’m so glad just looking is free, although it’s fun to find a steal every now and then, too. =)
