Weekend Yarn Shopping

Obviously, I don’t NEED yarn.


My stash outgrew it’s 24″ x 24″ x 60″ cedar chest quite some time ago.  The good news is…yarn squishes!  There’s always room for more Superior Cashmere! 

Especially when it’s 30% off!  And that green! How could I resist!?!  I bet 95% of all the green yarn I’ve ever owned has been bought in the spring.  It’s contagious.  These lovelies also came home with me…

Spring is springing, I wanted green!! The purple one is Tosh Sock.  There’s a Shibui Silk Cloud in Apple and a Malabrigo sock in Lettuce.  It’s happened on accident but I think they make a lovely pile.  Perhaps I’ve found my yarns for Stephen West’s latest MKAL, Marled Magic.  Then again…

This is my current stash of Superior Cashmere.  These would also make a great collection for a colorful shawl.  Maybe a Color Affection.  I think I’m the only one who hasn’t made one!  

The sad reason for this stash enhancement is yet another Bay Area yarn shop closing.  Greenwich Yarns in the Marina district, is set to close on Saturday.  The sale hasn’t gotten to deep discounts yet.  In fact, it looked like a fully stocked yarn shop to me. 20-30% discounts made it worth the effort though.  If it’s one thing I like more than yarn, it’s sale yarn!  

If you love Noro and Rowan, definitely check it out.  There is a lot of awesome yarn to be had!!  Now if I only had an extra set of arms to do all the knitting I’ve got planned!!

    Sorry to see another store close, but it seems you found some lovely things at the sale. I haven’t tried superior cashmere yet, but it looks soft and lovely.

    So if they are closing this week, when do the deep discounts start?

      Apparently, the woman who owns the shop has had going out of business/retirement sales in the past and then not gone out of business. That’s sort of the feeling I got, at least based on her stock.

      Guess we won’t have to wait long to find out!

    We never really NEED yarn…this year I’ve been very grateful for my sock yarn stash, since I haven’t really bought anything for funsies…feeding the stash I feel is an important thing to do from time to time :)
