Today I drove around SouthEastern Minnesota, yarn shop to yarn shop. It was a beautiful sunny day for a drive and I hit five yarn shops, from Winona to Northfield.
It was YarnVenture!
I picked up a dandy new bag at Yarnology in Winona, and managed to fill it up throughout the day. A skein of Sun Valley Merino fingering yarn from Hank and Purls in Rochester. Luscious spinning fiber from BeeLighted in Zumbrota. Nifty notions and another skein of fingering yarn from What in Yarnation in Cannon Falls. A new pattern and yarn from Northfield Yarn. Every shop had its own strengths, and it was fun to see the differences. I really consider myself lucky to have Northfield Yarn as my local yarn shop (I liked it the best of them all!)
And goodie bags at most of the shops, full of fun stuff!
My favorite goodie bag item? The bright red knit sign, also from Yarnology.
If you're in Minnesota or Western Wisconsin, you can still take part in this event. Second day is Saturday June 15. You'll have a lot of fun!
