A week or so ago Emma and I decided we would go the the Seattle Knitting Expo so we could buy more roving.Ã‚Â Crown Mountian Farms was going to be there, and I love how the pencil roving I have from them is spinning up.Ã‚Â Must buy more pencilÃ‚Â roving.Ã‚Â Then last night Emma e-mails me about a warehouse sale on Craigslist.Ã‚Â AÃ‚Â yarn warehouse sale who’s address Googles as the Cascade Yarns warehouse, just over the freeway from theÃ‚Â ExpoÃ‚Â . . . bitch.
This morning I got up before the birds, as my husband, the morning person, pointed out.Ã‚Â I picked up Annie, who’s armÃ‚Â IÃ‚Â twisted last night to come with us (right!),Ã‚Â and thenÃ‚Â we cruised over to Emma’s so we could pile into her car to make the pilgrimage to theÃ‚Â Seattle Knitting Expo.
We made great time and were there about ten minutes early, and had to stand outside the doors peering in at all the yarn and roving, and drool wait.
The first place we dumped a load of cash purchased a bit of roving was at Reflection Farm Wool Products.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â We all had a difficult time choosing which lovely roving(s) to take home with us.Ã‚Â See how much Emma loves her roving.
WeÃ‚Â also left some money at Crown Mountian Farms and Williams Wools & Weaving (no website yet). WeÃ‚Â bought a bit of roving between the three of us.
WeÃ‚Â staggering out of Expo with our credit cards smoking.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Since the warehouse sale didn’t start for half an hour weÃ‚Â stopped for a bit of refreshment.Ã‚Â Bolstered by hashbrowns and beverages, we made the trek to the Cascade Yarns warehouse . . . where we bought a bit of yarn . . .
The yarn was hard to resist, $20 for a 10 skein bag.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â At those pricesÃ‚Â it’s lucky weÃ‚Â walked out with as little as we did.
