Fibre Space. Nestled right in the heart of Old Town Alexandria, Fibre Space is chock-full of yarn and goodies that are hard to find. Danielle, the owner has done an AMAZING job making her store unique. My classes were SO FUN! Peels of laughter, loads of learning, and even some tender moments occurred as Fibre Space's intrepid knitters discovered the joys of knitting with beads. I got to meet knitters from my Ravelry group who have been participating for years... KnitFoolDeirdre even brought me Whoppers (one of my FAV's) and Michele gifted me a gorgeous skein of her hand-dyed yarn! Swoon! There was also a fair amount of enabling... I noticed my students slipping away for a bit to take a break in the shop downstairs and coming back loaded with goodies. It was pretty comical!
I had to do some shopping too. I got some yarn from Fibre Company for the book that I cannot wait to work with. Right before I left on Sunday I saw a HUGE basket on the floor of Miss Babs "Yummy Toes"! Yummy Toes has 133 yards on it, just enough to make a Latus! Before I knew it I was piling up skeins I had to have! The staff caught the bug from me and chose skeins as well... then they asked me to go across to the street and find matching beads for them, which I just had to do! I can't wait to see their Latus's (Latusi?) take shape... I know Arthelea has already cast on!
