This weekend was the 5th LA Yarn Crawl and my friend and I stopped in at Alamitos Bay Yarn Company in Long Beach, and then headed up the coast to Twist, Yarns of Intrigue in Manhattan Beach.
Alamitos was fun, all the staff members were dressed up in cute pirate costumes, since they are nestled in the long beach marina, surrounded by hundreds of sailboats. Elise snagged up some interesting cotton yarn, Cotton Fine by DanDoh in a gorgeous Bordeaux color.
Then off we went to Twist, where I picked up some amazing hand dyed Twist yarn in a color blend just outside of my comfort zone. I’m excited to see what I can come up with to make with this yarn!
And last but not least, I purchased some Malabrigo in white and this gorgeous mix of blues. The pattern for this has already been selected, this Gradient Cowl by Anna Stasiak. Elise purchased the same yarn, in a slightly different shade of blue, and we’re going to be making these together!
I hope you all had a fun weekend, and I can’t wait to share more with you all this week!
