Earlier this week I went yarn crawling with Erica from Kollage Yarns. With the Chicago Yarn Crawl going on, we wanted to check out some shops we hadn't been to before.
First we went to Mia Bella in Highland Park. It is the cutest shop. We think it looks Martha Stewart-ish in the best way possible. It was so bright and clean and cheery. I think I could definitely spend hours in there knitting.
While there, Erica took a picture of me with the Kollage ad in Vogue, featuring the Vokuhila Socks I designed (free pattern from Vogue website, get it here).
After that, we headed to Three Bags Full in Northbrook. Another very cute shop. The place is huge. I loved their wall of sock yarn! Finally we headed to Arlington Heights were we met Jenni and Jenny (yes, Erica was hanging out with two Jennys and a Jen!) and had a nice dinner with beer, fried mashed potato balls and talk of knitting. A fin Tuesday afternoon/evening if you ask me.
