Hello once again. Man, I swear you would think I made it my spring resolution to blog more. :)
Well, see, I am dyeing a bunch of yarn right now (including an experiment in real self-striping) and while it's cooking away on the stove I thought I would blog quickly about my yarn shop adventure yesterday.
Since my brother that is usually in Iowa was home for a couple days, I decided to go to my parents house in Grayslake yesterday to pay him a visit. I mean, sure, I wanted to see my brother, but I also knew that there was a new yarn shop in Grayslake. So, I stop by to check it out. It's called Prairie Arts & Fibers. It's a cute little shop in the new shop area of Prairie Crossing. Conveniently right on my way between my home and my parents place. Oh the joy! Of course, I couldn't fully appreciate the shop without buying a little yarn:
It's Claudia Handpainted in the Oops! colorway.
So, the verdict on the yarn shop? I really liked it. They are super new, and had a good selection of yarn. Denise, who was working there, was really really nice. And, really really nice people are important to me when going into an LYS. So, if you are G-town and need some yarn, I highly recommend stopping by.
P.S. I am starting to cook up a contest for my Etsy-versary, so stay tuned for that!
