Yarn, glorious yarn

My knit group had a field trip today to Peachtree City, GA (about an hour & 15 min away) to a brand new yarn shop! Sugarfoot Yarns has opened & can I say--what a lovely little shop! I managed to leave relatively unscathed---the artyarns beaded silk kept calling me. Seriously screaming my name. I left with 3 skeins of yarn--Misti Alpaca handpainted sock yarn, Misti Alpaca lace & Malabrigo (Smellabrigo---private joke for the group) sock yarn.

Here's the group after we made our purchases. Afterwards we went to Tuesday Morning for cheap (I mean, inexpensive) knitting books & then to 5 Guys Burgers & Fries for lunch.

You left out the part about your "scenic drive" to Five Guys.

Holly---someday you'll want to know more about the Tyrone area & will be grateful that Laura, Lacey & I are experts!!

Kristine--Yes, yes! Maybe I'll have won the lottery so I can buy enough of the beaded silk for a proper shawl!
