#29.Visiting LYS while Snow Birding

While snow birding in Miami, I wanted to visit local yarn shops.  Apparently yarn shops are not a big thing in the south.  I wasn’t able to find one in Charleston, SC while visiting my daughter and I could only find two in the North Miami area.   Traffic makes everything difficult in the Miami area so I only visited one of the two yarn shops.  It was only 20 minutes from the Y I attended while in Miami but the return trip to the condo was 45 minutes.

It was crowded with yarn and dark as it’s a narrow store front.  The lack of pricing on the skeins of yarn was also not helpful.  But what a treasure to find the yarn that we had all marveled over that Lise had gotten during a trip to Seattle.  I could not resist taking on another project using this special yarn.

I’m excited to have a project to take with me on our trip to Italy in May.  The yarn is tiny, lace weight, so it won’t take up a lot of room.  The lacy red shawl will be pretty with my black and white summer dress.

I’ll look forward to visiting this yarn shop again next winter.  It is only a few blocks from where my son lives so hopefully next year I might be able to combine a visit to the shop with a visit to my son.
