When I am shopping away from home, I tend to look for stuff that meets 2 criteria. 1.) it's local to the area or b.) I can't get it locally.
Next stop? Twisted. This was an absolutely lovely store and I focused on Portland Yarn Dyers. I might have gone a wee bit crazy (greedy) while in the shop. Thankfully JB supports this craziness and realizes that I'm just stocking up for our retirement when I can't afford to buy yarn and probably won't be able to see well enough to knit anyway - but we don't talk about that part.
Next - I went local to Seattle because I can't get it locally. I picked up Hazel Knits Lime Granita which is the color of really good mint chocolate chip ice cream. The only thing it's missing is the brown flecks - but that's okay. It's a lovely soft color and will most likely become socks with some sort of leafy pattern.
