If you follow me on my social media sites, then you know I am a total yarn shopping addict!! I love going into any craft store that carries yarn. Last year I adventured out from the big box stores and discovered some local shops near me and I have fallen in love. There is one shop that is about 20 minutes away from my house that is called Yarnivore that I have begun to visit on a regular basis. I love finding yarns that you can’t find at a big box store and giving them a try. Recently I was looking for a good cotton blend yarn in a medium (4) weight and I discovered Cascade Avalon and I love working with this yarn, it has a nice cool feel to it, which is fabulous for summer!! Here are some photos from my recent shopping adventure, I needed one more skein for my Totally Toteable Tote for the Summer 2015 Mystery Crochet Along and any excuse to head the yarn store to shop and hang out for a while is great!! Just what I was looking for!! Love the green too!! This orange would be perfect for fall, I wonder what I could make with it! I believe I am seeing socks in my future……….I even snuck in a little crochet time waiting for my yarn cake to be spun!
