I found this new lopi yesterday while exploring a new yarn store at the ‘Whipletree Junction’. The store is called ‘The Loom’ and it is an absolute treasure trove of wools, fleece, spinning and weaving supplies. My heart was racing and I was a bit breathless as I explored all the nooks and crannies of this store. Products were lined up and down, floor to ceiling with barely any room to move around in. I love these old school type of yarn shops. In Vancouver there is a new breed of yarn stores..ultra organized, house music playing, amazing Japanese Noru yarns and not a verigated baby acrylic in site. I love these kinds of shops too, they appeal to my aesthetic. But, the older shops are where I find my treasures. I’m so inspired by this delicious colour (in the pic it’s mixed with a chestnut mohair) I’m working on a doll right now with this colour hair. I should be done by tomorrow night.
Kids are good, Jasper is fully taking advantage of the ‘breast buffet’ right now and is growing like a weed.
