exploring the LYS

Mom's friend mentioned Spun Fibre Arts ages ago. We'd meant to check it out before but hadn't found it when driving around in Burlington. So armed with a map and directions from their website we set out.

Wow, it's well hidden! "Tucked in the corner behind KFC ..." - we'd never have found it without that hint. But it was so worth the effort. Loads of fabulous yarn, including some spectacular colours of Mission Falls Cottons. Millions of patterns and kits and ideas. All in a well-organized store with lots of comfy seating and very friendly staff.

Congratulations are in order - I didn't buy even a single skein of yarn. But I've put a hand-dye kit and a drop spindle kit on my Birthday list. And saw a great stash-busting pattern idea... but you'll have to wait to hear more about that later!
