A Second Secret Pal 10 Contest!

What's the furthest I've travelled for a yarn?


Actually, this map shows how far I've travelled specifically for yarn ---

Stu and I went on a yarn expedition one day, and headed down to Seattle. We stopped at a few places, (the best being Marilyn's Yarns in Bellingham). We (I) was in search of Socks That Rock and Trekking. We had an awesome time, and amazingly Stu didn't seem to mind the trip. I think he even had fun! Which is still a little surprising, considering the sole reason for the mission was to go to yarn stores and acquire yarn.

We are planning lots more yarn expeditions in the not so distant future. Hopefully we will be venturing further into Washington state and maybe even down to Oregon.

PS. We found both Socks That Rock and Trekking.
