More stash enhancement in Bend

I had to dash over the mountains to Bend for an evening meeting, and return home the next day, so I made time to visit Juniper Fiberworks, a yarn store I didn't get to on my last trip to Bend.

They've recently moved into new quarters and the storefront, on a small side street off of a main drag, still bears the sign of its former occupants. I wasn't sure I was in the right place, but as usual, the wool fumes led me to the right location.

There I found the best selection I've seen in a modest-sized yarn shop. It took me a bit to get used to the arrangement, as the yarn was sorted not by fiber and weight like most stores, but by color. Convenient when one is looking for a specific color, but I would have liked to have seen the yarn sorted by fiber and weight within the colors.

Nevertheless, it wasn't hard to walk out with something nice in hand. In this case it was an assortment of Mission Cotton, a nubby DK weight cotton yarn, in various colors. Why? I have something in mind. A colleague just found out his wife is expecting their second child, and I have something in mind...

Thanks, Karen, for your comment on my blog. I thought that sweater would be easy enough for my first sweater.

The yarn you got is beautiful. It will make a lovely baby gift.

Don't you just love stash enhancement? That's going to be one lucky baby... Can't wait to see what it turns out to be.
