Double Ewe

I took a visit to a new local yarn shop yesterday after voting and managed to add to my yarn stash. I picked up a skein of Malabrigo in the Hollyhock colorway and a ball of Bunny Hop for a quick baby hat since there's 4 babies on the way at my office. Yes, I said FOUR. I've quit drinking the water...
The yarn shop is a quaint shop tucked in the corner of a strip mall. She's got some nice felting yarns, Cherry Tree Hill (one of my favorite sock yarns) and many more types of yarn that I can't remember. Each yarn has an information card posted next to it with things like the fiber content, what it is best used for, feltable or not, stitches per inch, etc, a nice touch IMO. I can tell the owner is tuned in to how to run a good business, I'm looking forward to seeing the shop grow in the coming months.
