Hi from up here in Minnesota!!
Charles M. Schultz is from Minnesota! If you walk through the streets of The Twin Cities, you will see various statues of Snoopy etc. This one is outside a veterinary hospital that is situated in an old house. I love it.
The Yarnery is a favorite shop I like to go to when I visit my sister. We bought her yarn so that I can knit a blanket for her. Then I bought some Koigu.....
35% OFF. I Love the colorway. Hmmmm, socks? a Cowl? hmmmmm a bandanna shawlette?
I was displeased, I have to say in one little way. After spending nearly 200 dollars on yarn, they would not wind two tiny skeins of Koigu. Their policy. Not because it was on sale. They weren't busy with classes or clients. They just don't wind.
I want yarn shops to wind. All of the shops in my Chicago area wind. You may have to wait, but they wind and they do it with a smile. Does your shop wind?
Finally, last night I was treated to Mammatus Clouds. I had never seen them. Mam...for mammary. THey resemble breasts....to some. They were beautiful in a threatening sky.
