This month Spinsters was at Settlers Farm Yarn Shop in Wamego, Ks, owned by fellow Spinster, Jennifer S.
Jennifer has a wonderful shop filled with fiber, yarn, spinning wheels and anything else you might need to fill your fiber needs. The store is warm and inviting, filled with fiber, yarn, antiques that display her wares, and comfortable chairs to settle into while knitting.
Downtown Wamego was so charming with a wide main street and turn of the century stone store fronts. We all brought 4 oz of fiber for a White Elephant gift exchange and were all thrilled by our fiber surprises.
We had a long discussion on the rules of the game and the etiquette of how to “steal”, only to have each of us love what we got. Well, many of us seemed to love what Jennifer S got because she had three of her gifts stolen! Jennifer S was so sweet, she also gave each of us a sock blank from KnitPicks.
Here’s my score – one of Nikol’s Cuckoo Batts – and yes, I stole it from Jennifer S! I also ended up buying yarn for socks and some Jacquard dyes. When you sit in a yarn shop for four hours, surrounded by beautiful fiber, how can you not walk out with a bit of yarn to add to the stash?! E-gad, I have no resistance, but I do have a beautiful collection of yarn and fiber! : )
