Utopia (aka Purl Soho)

On the heels oh going to the dream bike shop, I was able to spend some time in the dream yarn and fabric shop: Purl Soho.

With the amazing selection, it's almost overwhelming. But indecision of this kind is a fun predicament to be in.

Oh, did I mention they sell Liberty of London fabric? That had me in a trance for a half hour at least.

Wall of Liberty of London.

Eventually I was able to focus and pick up a couple of things. Shocker, I know.

Items include:
  • 2 skeins of koigu in a purply/blue-ish/pinky hue
  • 3 yards of tan pompoms
  • 1/2 yard of Liberty of London starry fabric

I feel like this purchase was very thoughtful on my part. I could have easily gone overboard and bought so many more things. I left that to Erin and my mom.

I bet you were like a kid in a candy shop. That yarn is fabulous - my favorites colors actually. I'd love to have a bike with this delicious color spectrum.

Aw, the mothership. The day I walk in there, and let's hope it happens in this lifetime, I'm not going to know what to do first.
Love the loot. :-)

I'm incredibly envious of that Liberty star print. I have long been admiring that. I'm glad you gals had such a fun trip!
