Spreading the support

So turns out, this year's contribution was not tiny but it was great fun and appreciated.

The shop - Drygoods Design - has sewing stuff plus yarn and other goodies. And today they had a pop up shop from a nearby yarn maker Local Color Fiber Studio.

Usually indie yarn outfits have grays/browns and various shades of off white. But this woman had a bunch of nice colors in premium yarn. So I treated myself to four skeins. And the snotty sales girl who pissed me off so royally last Summer, was on top of her game. She greeted me by name and pointed me to some knits that she thought I might like and she was was 100% correct. 2 yards each of two really fun fabrics. Then they had this really fun kit for making a lion so, yeah.

Way more than I intended to spend but it was fun and worth it plus I got some really good shit. Oh and a free Small Shop Saturday canvas bag. I took a picture of the bag when I got home and instgrammed about the shop, the pop up shop and Small Shop Saturday. It took exactly 13 minutes to get a really sweet 'thanks' from the shop owner.

All in all a very successful outing. I'm glad I did it. Now I am about to have Yet Another Yarn Project going - crochet hat. In the fiber world we call these UFO's = UnFinishedObjects. I have way too many and, you know what? I totally do not care.

Oh and I also took what is now my very favorite selfie.
