Finger Lakes Fibers

Posted by mobarger on May-2-2007


I visited Finger Lakes Fibers in Watkins Glen yesterday. I had ordered a GoKnit bag and it had arrived. I figured it was better to buy local than to buy from Scout (although I have my eye on something else from there) 😉
I ended up buying a Simply Knit pattern and some yarn for a the Lotus Blossom Tank pattern from Summer 2006 IK. And some needles since my Lantern Moon needles encountered yet another breakage when I was working on Poma yesterday. It is a very nice store with a lot of locally grown fiber and spun yarn plus all the usual names. I was glad to see that they did not stock a ton of Berocco – nothing against Berocco it was just nice to see a store who didn’t have a lot. they had lots of new yarns, Tofutsies and Bamboo blends, lots of Elizabeth Lavold yarn and great sample knits. Tons of sock yarns. Lots of Schaeffer. Good book section and nice place to sit in the front window.

I am working on the Poma again although I am taking another breather. I was working chart B and didn’t bother to check the pattern again until I finished the chart. Oops. I am just going to repeat the chart once more to complete the foot and call her done.

crafty stuff

I also stopped at Borders and Michaels on my way back home and scored on the dollar bin at Michaels. I love this farmy stuff. If I ever join another exchange I am all set :) The pencil case will make a very handy needle case don’t you think?
