missing and misti

January 26, 2011

wow. my last post was on the 18th! too long to not post, but too much going on too post. so here we go. after this whirlwind of a weekend, or i guess somewhere in the middle of it all, i found myself in Washington Depot, CT eating lunch at the Pantry. (wonderful restaurant/ gourmet food store/ cooking store. i mean awesome) I went there for Career day last year and just couldn’t get over how good it was. and how much butter they used, but lets not get OT. But the best part about Washington Depot is that it is home to the nearest LYS.

Enter, The Village Sheep.

a charming and beautifully decorated yarn store run by, guess what, a young knitter! i officially know a young, obsessive knitter like myself. a miracle, i know. if you live in the area you should definitely stop by. Although she does not carry Madelinetosh or Malabrigo, (she said the was sorry 😦 ) she does carry a wonderful array of Rowan, Misti Alpaca, Blue Sky Alpacas, Cascade, Spud and Chloe and bunches of other brands. They have a charming sitting area and sell adorable notions and i think I even spotted some KnitPicks needles (now that they’re on wholesale!)

Anywho, although i arrived hoping to take home three skeins of Malabrigo Twist in Sunset for a Cedar Leaf Shawlette, I was not disappointed.

I left with something even better. these adorable little gift tags (mother insisted on them, i just laughed.)

Three skeins of Misti Alpaca Chunky in an Olive colorway

and a brewing design idea. Check back for knitty updates on that soon!
