A new not-local yarn shop
We took a snow shoeing trip to the Lake Tahoe area last weekend and stayed in historic Truckee, CA. We visit Truckee only once or twice a year, and I used to always stop by the Jimmy Beans Wool yarn shop. That Jimmy Beans location closed a few years ago, leaving Truckee with a knitting shop void. I was happily surprised on this visit when I stumbled upon Lake Tahoe Yarn Co. on our shopping excursion. It's located in one of these old homes that line historic downtown and shares it's retail space with another quaint shop.
Of course, I just had to buy something, so I decided to pick up more Malabrigo worsted yarn. This is a really unsual bluish-brownish-orangish pink that looks different in different lighting.
