A New LYS!

A new yarn store opened in the area yesterday! How exciting is that! I went last evening to check it out. It's real clean and a pretty good size, but not a lot of yarn yet. I can't wait until she gets more yarn in. I'll check back in a couple of weeks and see if there is more yarn. It was fun to touch and look! I bought a couple of skeins of Plymouth Encore Colorspun:

Kind of blinding and bright, I love it! And I bought a skein of Plymouth Yarn Dreambaby DK. It's so soft, just had to have it! It's a vibrant purple, I just can't get the camera to do the color justice:

I'm going to make some fingerless mitts with the Dreambaby, and maybe some house socks with the Colorspun. But it will take me a while to get through that as I can only knit for short periods of time at the moment.

I did finish the little kitty I was making. I just love these kitties! At first I had sewn a yarn nose, but it just didn't look right. So I ripped it out and sewed on a little pompom, I think it looks better.

I don't know where this kitty is going to end up yet, I just may keep this one.
