yarn yarn more yarn

Over the holiday weekend we headed east. About as east as you can get. We detoured slightly to visit this:
The fabulous storerooms of Halcyon Yarns in Bath ME. Drool-worthy.

I've ordered from them twice and hoped to avoid the serious (never discounted) postal fees by stocking up on some additional cones of pearl cotton and silky bamboo, two of the nicest yarns I've worked with, and they come on cones so there is no joining for larger projects.
CK is fondling Harrisville Highland Tweed in washed skeins, really pretty and sturdy stuff that she has already cast on for mittens with!

I'm just waiting for some nice light and a free five minutes to photograph my loot from this place, as well as a couple of other yarns suppliers in Halifax NS (our destination.) Stay tuned!
