The weaving bug has bitten me and I want a loom. When I first started talking about it (last week), I knew nothing about looms. Now, I know that what I want is a rigid heddle loom and I think I want about a 24″ – 27″ loom. Yes, it’s just a toy. It’s not the big floor loom but I want to make scarves, placemats, dish towels . . I just want to play!
The Yarn Barn in Lawrence, Kansas has lots of looms in stock. I found them on the internet and then called them and they were so nice and helpful so we drove over to look at the looms and find out a bit more info.
The Yarn Barn has big looms, little looms, all kinds of looms. I’m leaning towards this one that has the red and blue yarn on it. I’m going to go back and take a two day class and use the various looms and decide after the class. Doesn’t that look like fun?
You may have noticed that I haven’t had any problems buying yarn but other than a few trips to Hobby Lobby, my yarn shopping has mostly been done online. It was so nice to go into a real yarn shop, with real samples!
Isn’t this a fun place? I didn’t want to leave. Vince decided to wait outside while I finished browsing.
He was out people watching. In a college town, there were lots of sites to see. It was a breath of fresh air to see the college kids, all decked out with purple or pink or green hair and funny clothes. They were out in full force enjoying the sunny Saturday and we enjoyed watching them.
We totally loved Lawrence. There as a sushi restaurant there and I thought I was going to get my sushi fix but they weren’t open for lunch and we had other places to go so we didn’t wait around. Instead, we ate at The Noodle.
Good food, good shopping, a good yarn shop . . I could find myself going back to Lawrence, Kansas often.
