intrepid sock yarn shoppers...

This past weekend, DillyDallyKnitter and I were at it again as the intrepid sock yarn shoppers. On Friday evening, she let me know that Purlesence had received a new shipment of STR...
I shared my opinions with her and we decided that it was worth the trip. After all, it was sock yarn, which is almost always worth the trip! So, bright and early Saturday morning, we were off! We did our usual shopping, and just as we were pulling out of the parking lot, we spied this:
Viva Video/The Lace Museum! That sounded way too good to pass up. We werent 100% sure what we were getting ourselves into, but we turned around anyway. And lucky for us, it really was The Lace Museum.

There was lace everywhere, and of all types. Knitted lace, crocheted lace, tatted lace, needle lace, and lace made from hair- you name it, and it was there! And there was a very nice lady who showed it all to us, with a big wooden pointer.

It was all lovely, and some of it took over 30 hours per square inch to make!


There was a nice gift shop too, and so I started my holiday shopping early by buying this:


Isn't it lovely? That is hand worked needle lace on there!

Don't be like me and forget where you put that ornament! Otherwise you'll find it in time for Christmas '09....

Yowza! Lace that takes over 30 hours per square inch to make - I feel better about my S-L-O-W drawing now!

Thank you!

Wow, where is that? It looks almost like Laci's. Except for the front, you know.

30 hours per square inch? Hmmm! That explains a lot.

Did you buy all that yarn?
