A Trip to Little Knits

As of this morning I'm back on the East Coast, but I still have a bit of blogging about Seattle to do. Since I was in Seattle, how could I resist going to Little Knits? I've ordered from them online in the past and had great experiences, so when I got a "good for $25 of yarn" from my aunt I immediately decided we had to go to Little Knits. Yesterday morning we headed out for our yarn shopping adventure.

Sue was really nice and helpful even though they're working like crazy to finish orders and make up for Seattle's recent bad weather and lack of power. Not only did I get my yarn, she showed me around the "store" (it's in a little house) and let me take some pictures to show all of you!

A box of Schaeffer yarns that just arrived:



Wool in the Woods Twin Twist (I got some from my aunt!)



And one of the rooms with cubbies of yarn:



I flew back on a red-eye flight last night. I haven't had the best luck with my travel on this trip, both my flights and both my train rides were at least an hour late. :( I got to the airport to hear that my flight was about an hour late, headed to the gate, found a plug and watched some Smallville on the laptop while knitting socks. The flight finally boarded about an hour after it was originally supposed to take off and we didn't get out of Seattle until about midnight. I did absolutely no knitting on the plane, but I did get some sleep in.

I arrived home to find two lovely packages, one from Scout's Swag and one from Sundara's Petals Collection, but I'll save those for another post.

all that yarn...I think I'm drooling. I live in a town where my LYS is the Wal-Mart so when I get the chance to see a lot of yarn like that...I start to tear up a little. *sniffles*

I can't look. It's too much! Maybe we need to go back to WEBS so I can get used to seeing all that yarn!

Ahhhh... Little Knits!! Knowing me, I would have stayed there for hours. I think a Stash-Enhancement trip is in order.
