I finally made it over to Yarndogs. It's a local yarn shop, but it's a bit out of the way from the places I normally go. It's totally worth the detour though, the shop is absolutely fabulous! Great selection, great atmosphere, and two cute shop dogs.
I almost left without getting anything (the horror), but Mum saw something she liked, so she bought me the supplies.
Mum has decided that she wants some mini socks for Christmas. I told her that I didn't have the right needles or blocker, so she remedied that.
