Too much.

Last week, I went up to Massachusetts to visit Lindsey, and we had a yarn-filled weekend.

We drove two hours in the pouring rain to WEBS.  It was amazing and overwhelming.  We ran into Adrian of HelloYarn and Ravelry’s Jess (along with a group of their friends), walking out as we walked in.

We wandered the aisles, touching everything.

I bought enough yarn for a sweater, probably that DROPS Cardi that everyone’s making.  I also bought two skeins of Louet Gems in fingering weight, which will probably be some kind of colorwork mitts or mittens.  And two skeins of Malabrigo in Bobby Blue because I just couldn’t leave without some Malabrigo.

Yarn from WEBS.

Here's the full haul from WEBS.

Afterwards, we braved the rain and had Tibetan food in Northampton for lunch.  They had amazing dumplings. Mmmm.

We drove home, and tried to stop at another yarn shop, in Lexington, but they were closed.  You can see how much rain there was at this point.

We made our way back to Salem, where we watched Woody Allen movies and knit.

The next day, I took some pictures of Lindsey modeling a scarf she knit, and we had coffee.  It was really, really windy, but not raining!

Yes, there’s a ship (the Friendship!) on the walk from Lindsey’s apartment to the coffee shop.  And this beautiful view.

Oh, and of course, there was some Queen Elizabeth playin’.

 It was a fabulous, Lindsey & yarn filled weekend.

  1. Whoa, the color of that nature wool is incredible! It’s like the perfect green! I’ve never been to Wild & Woolly in Lexington, but I definitely want to check it out soon, too bad it was closed!

  2. It looks like you had a wonderful time – I like the coffee art.
