Yesterday, Maryse and I bundled into the car, braved sleet and snow and drove a couple hours out to Northampton to Webs. Oh lordy, it was just as I'd imagined. The shop itself was great, everything you could want that had to do with knitting. Bags, needles, DVDs, weird notions you've never seen before, and a tonne of staff on the floor ready and able to help should you have a question. This week they're having a Boxing Week sale (they call it something else. To me, it's Boxing Week) and I scored some good deals on some new yarn.
The main part of the shop is fantastic but I think that if you time it right by the season, the magic happens in the warehouse in back. It's like the Costco for yarn back there. You're never sure quite what's in stock but when you find something, grab it. Who knows if it will still be there when you return. I didn't pull the trigger on anything in the warehouse this time, but I'm going to troll through again next time. I *knew* I should have nabbed that green Kathmandu Aran bag when I saw it.
Added to the stash:
- Noro sock
- Shibui merino sock
- Happy Feet sock
- Cascade 220 Paints
- Rowan Scottish Tweed Aran for the CPH. I'm comin' for ya Meg.
