I originally thought I’d visit the Albuquerque yarn shop on LYS Day. Instead, I ended up at Yarn & Coffee in Santa Fe! Turns out they were participating in Casapinka’s Local Yarn Shawl promotion and the Albuquerque store wasn’t. I definitely wanted Casapinka’s pattern.
Yarn tour is a definite success! My plastic backpack is nearly full! I bought a couple skeins of Dream in Color. Not a brand everyone carries, no one in the SF Bay Area that I know of. It fits the ‘something I can’t get at home’ bill. I think this combo, Mesa and Dune will be for the Casapinka shawl.
Overall, I really enjoyed Yarn & Coffee. It felt the most like my living room of all the shops I’ve visited. The owner was lovely. The other patrons were lovely. It was very inviting. I’d definitely shop here if I was a local!
Did a little Sunday driving in the area too. The Jemez Mountains are spectacular! I visited a waterfall above 8000 feet! That thin air is really something!
I’ve got more pics to share but they’ll have to wait. I’m off to see Walter White’s house and then, Roswell! That’s way more exciting than waiting for hotel wi-fi!
