Fiber Fix

Today Michelle and I went to Miss Chickpea's Funky Fibers in Hudson. I needed a fiber fix and Michelle was more than happy to go along for the ride.

The shop is really cute inside. Miss Pea (Ravelry link) was not there but her staff was very friendly and they had quite a few yarns that I had never seen before. The best part was they were having a Christmas in July sale. Michelle and I tried to restrain ourselves and limit our purchases but it was tough.

The shop is located in the First & Main shopping district in Hudson. There are a lot of great stores and restaurants in the plaza. I will definitely take a trip back to Miss Chickpea's and make a day of it.

What did I buy you ask? Of course I did not leave there empty handed. I got some cotton fleece in an eggplant color to make the Yogini Bolero. I think I'm going to make the long sleeve version.

I also picked up three balls of Puffin by Crystal Palace. This is made of polyester fleece. I think this is going to become a baby jacket or sweater. It will definitely be warm. Last I picked up two hanks of sock yarn. No I don't need more sock yarn but I couldn't resist the color. The yarn is Hacho hand dyed merino wool.

We also stopped at Chico's. They were having a sidewalk sale and everything was 50% of the sale prices. I got this great skirt. Michelle got two skirts and three pairs of shoes. She got quite a deal the shoes were only $7.00 each.

It's my Birthday!!!

Today is Max's 9th birthday. I can't believe my little pup has been with us for 9 years. Well I have to go make him some homemade dog biscuits. I asked him if he wanted me to make him some treats and now he is laying in front of the oven whining.
