I was a lucky girl and managed to sneak away to Tolt Yarn and Wool for the Maker’s Mercantile today. I was not in a yarn buying mood. I think I outdid myself last week ( I have more on that when I talk about my goals). I always enjoy seeing a store decorated for the holidays and while it was a complete zoo. I was able to meet someone whose work I been admiring for awhile named Tif Fussell (aka Dottie Angel).
I was able to snag a pocket with wooly tattoo and some handmade pins. Normally I would not use the word “treasures” for my purchase but I have to say these ones are and I do love them so.
I also swore I wasn’t going to buy any yarn but completely stalled on my objective when I saw what Spincycle brought. They had some beautiful merino blend marled sport(non superwash) yarn called “Suit & Tie” which was made up special for the event. I spoke to one of the Spinsters and she told me it was created for this event, so of course I had to snatch it up ( and maybe an extra skein for good measure).
