Well I took the day off work today. My friend and I decided to go yarn shopping. Well I didn't buy much. I guess I get a little overwhelmed at all the selections.

The blue/gray ball sitting on top of the red is Universal Yarn Co. Classic Worsted LP. It's 20% wool 80% Acrylic. It's very soft.

The red/orange multicolored below blue/gray yarn is named Di.Ve Teseo. I just had to have it. Don't know what I am going to do with it yet.

And course I bought some Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Purple Club.

Has anybody ever used yarn made by the Universal Yarn Co.? I just love their label. The have a little saying: "Knit, Relax, Smile. Repeat!"

I agree that's a great marketing tool :teehee: I love the colors too.

You must have a great job and a very understanding boss. I wish I could take a day off to go to the LYS. I was going to go yesterday on my lunch break, but an hour just isn't enough time. I need at least 2 or 3. I'm going with a friend today :woot: I can't wait!!!

I have a job. Not exciting, but it pays the bills (and of course helps me buy yarn). I just asked for the day offf, I told her that I have friends coming into town, which is true, but they are more my parent's friends than mine. I only have one yarn store near me which my friend, that went with me yesterday owns it. The nearest yarn stores are about 50-60 miles away from me.

The Lorna's Laces came from Angelika's Yarn Store. Which is about 30 minutes from my house. She has such a cute little store. I was in awe at all the Lorna's Laces she carried.
