Stash Enhancement

sock yarn and tea
After the tour of the woolen mill on Saturday, we drove north to Sheridan, WY to visit The Fiber House, a wonderful yarn shop, stuffed with luscious yarn. With great difficulty, I kept my stash enhancement limited to one fun-colored skein of sock yarn. The tea from Mystic Monks Coffee - also located in Wyoming - was purchased at the woolen mill. More information about the monks can be found here.

To help break up the three-hour road trip, we played games on the bus (thank you, Sara for this idea). I selected a skein of sock yarn (big surprise, right?) and a cute box to store knitting notions from the prize bag.

The trip was enjoyable - I did some knitting, chatted with friends, learned a great deal about the processing wool into yarn,  and saw a lot of Wyoming through the windows of the bus.

  2. Love your new yarn - both what you purchased and what you won. The little notions box is adorable. I went to the website for the Monks' coffee...they sell that but not the tea...boo-hoo. It sounds interesting. Glad you had such a nice time.

  5. How fun! I really like the yarns that you bought and won and the box is really sweet too. I'm hoping to drive to Omaha next summer and since Buffalo is the halfway point, maybe I can stay the night and explore the yarn shop in Sheridan. :-)
    Blessings,
