I had been to Needleworks in Champaign before, and was very impressed with their selection and the friendliness of the staff. They were really busy this time, which is a good thing! I concentrated on sock yarn this visit.
I also picked up a couple more row counters, some Knit Klips, a bag of Clover needle coils (which I love for holding circs together when they're in my bag), and a little bottle of Soak in the Flora scent. Yarn Barn in San Antonio had a great accessories wall, which I didn't appreciate until I moved!
After meeting my cousin for lunch and a trip to Hobby Lobby, where we looked at garland and mirrors and boxes, I went to Klose Knit in Urbana. Klose Knit reminded me of Hill Country Weavers in Austin, mostly, I guess, because it's located in an old house, although it's much smaller than HCW. They have a nice selection of yarns, ranging from fairly standard (Rowan) to less common. I went for a couple skeins of the less common.
Blue Sky Alpacas Bulky (50% alpaca, 50% wool) in pale pink (1018)
This is going to be a hat, probably for my niece.
Mango Moon 100% Viscose in Venus
This is gorgeous (and was on sale for 30% off!) but I have not idea what I'll do with it.
