277 - I Think I'm Addicted.  

I think I may have a fibre addiction. I just got in from a mini shopping spree.

First, we went to Wabi Sabi. I <3 that store like whoa!

I got 6m of wine red, 6m of blue and 12m of black. I also got a couple grab bags of little bits to try my hand at making felted beads for necklaces for the jewelry section of the Emporium.

Since I'm also on a sock kick, despite never having finished a sock, I bought a ball of Tofutsies. It's a  50% superwash wool, 25% soy silk, 22.5% cotton and 2.5% Chitin. What's chitin you may be asking yourself? Chitin is fibre made from shrimp and crab shells. I couldn't make that up.

Then the yarn bug was in my system. We then went to Zellers and I might have gotten carried away...

In my defense, I have plans for all of this. I have some big and not so big ideas for the Emporium and needed some stuff to get it rolling. August will be busy as I want to have my shop ready for the holiday season. Yikes.

Anyways, that's my day. I really, really love yarn and roving and yes, even crustacean wool.

What next?
