Madrona Yarn Market
Saturday was our yearly trek to Tacoma to the Madrona Yarn Market. the lazy kate (by Will Taylor) is one i've been wanting for a long time and wonderful Morgaine from Carolina Homespun in SF,CA brought it up for me. it will hold any of my bobbins and is tensioned, which i've also wanted! i tried very diligently to not want/buy any of the yarn and fiber which i fondled, but these 2 skeins doomed my resolve as they will be perfect in the "Poppy" creation. and i also bought a few ounces of some raw coopworth wool. i won't say i needed any of this, but i'm weak. so there!
we spend several hours wandering, looking, meeting up with friends, having a nice lunch and just enjoying the day with fiber and fiber lovers!
Kate and Rene found something wonderful in these bins at Crown Mountain Fibers!
