Yarn from London
I am sure I could have gotten most of this online ... and the Noro is from Japan! The others are made in the U.K. Anyway, I am looking forward to remembering my trip with every stitch!

My wonderful husband had to work every single minute we were there ... so .... I was on my own and able to sight see AND yarn search to my hearts content without having to consider where he would like to go or what he wanted see... or how long I could get him to WAIT for me. I enjoy traveling with him on business trips in the summer when school is out. I have become quite good at venturing out on my own and finding my way back to the hotel in time have dinner with him. It was especially fun as my first "knitting" trip.

It kind of bothers me to say that when I see those yarns I get the same feeling as when I see a newborn baby. I'm so sick. :(

Wow, how is it that up until now I had missed the fact that you're in Omaha??


(don't mean to hijack the thread either)

Great finds!!! My mom just got back from London not too long ago and said that she couldn't find any yarn shops. I don't think that she was looking that hard though... :rollseyes:

Everything I got was from a "department store". I found Liberty in a thread on another site, The KIP girls told me about one ... and when I was looking at magazines, there was another lady looking at the Knitting magazine so I asked her and she sent me down the street to the other one The KIP girls said you have to go further outside of London to get to a real LYS.
