A visit to the LYS

This week has been just crazy, so I decided to take a little break and head to our LYS, the Hook and Needle. The owner, Nancy, is getting really neat yarn and accessories in all the time, so I try to stop by every couple of weeks.

Who can leave the YS without buying some yarn?

I am so excited to see that the Hook and Needle is starting to carry Opal sock yarns. I've never worked with Opal, but everyone just raves about the yarn. Plus, this is the 6 Ply-DK weight, which will knit on size 4mm--pretty fast. The colors are just so pretty. I picked up some birch double points, a (green) Chibi with nice needles, and the new Vogue. I actually like a large number of the patterns in this Vogue. Is it just me or do these designs look like the new Rowan designs?
