Looks like you had a great time and brought home some nice stuff. Have fun with it!


I've only managed to read a bit of your post so far. I'm so jealous! I'm just drooling. When I can stand it I'll come back and look some more. LOL.


I loved reading your post. Great pictures! ...doing a yarn crawl has been something I wanted to do in our area..oh one day! You were very disciplined in your shopping, and your choices in yarn sound like they'll make for great projects this summer. Gardening is priority right now here in Alberta Canada we have such a short season. Thanks for letting us share in your day, and I look forward to reading your future posts on your work in the garden, and knitting!


Wow, what fun! I wish I could have been there! Nice haul too :)


I'm so jealous! There aren't that many stores here to do a yarn crawl and the selection of yarn is quite pitiful. But, I have "shopped" at Full Thread Ahead"! Just wish Uncommon Threads had online shopping ;-)


What a fun day! I wish "my shops" were all a little closer -- or maybe I just need to get an extra-early start and make an entire day of it. Hey, that doesn't sound like torture or anything, does it! That's going on my list -- I'm havin' a Yarn Crawl Day!


What a fun day! I was eyeing some Jitterbug this weekend too (in that exact color!), but it stayed on the wall of the shop. Probably a good thing.


Lovely! It must have been a fabulous trip.


I'm glad you had fun. I did too. We'll have to do your neck of the woods next time.

I'm swatching today with some of what I bought.


The yarn crawl looked like lots of fun. I like the socks they are very pretty. I may have to hunt some of that down.


Wow, looks like fun! But a rubber band necklace? Seriously?


stumbled onto your site... love your review of some of the south bay yarn stores. the ones you mentioned are among my favorite... especially Commuknitty and Knitting Arts. I grew up in Saratoga, but it wasn't until I moved away did I start knitting (darn it!) and didn't realize what good yarn stores were so close to me at the time!
