On the Road – Day 3

Standard

We’re not technically “on the road” right now because we’re staying in Taos until Tuesday. But for the sake of titles… “On the Road” seems appropriate.

Today I went to meet a few family members, and that was nice. However, the real excitement was when I went to some of the local fiber shops!! (Is that awful of me??) I first stopped at Weaving Southwest and I gotta say “I’m in love.” This place is open and friendly, and the yarn and woven items they have are exquisite! I wish I would’ve taken photos of this place, but I didn’t even think about it… I was too engulfed in all the splendid fiber. They do have an online store, and I am thrilled about that because I don’t live in Taos. I didn’t purchase anything today, but I will go back tomorrow and buy some worsted wool in their “peacock” colorway. ;)

I also stopped at La Lana Wools where the owner was extremely welcoming and friendly. This time I remembered to take photos, and I was permitted to “take as many as I like” and to feel free to “roll around in the yarn.” Awesome. I did.

Im definitely a fiber fiend!

Did you enjoy that?! I still have plans to go to Taos Sunflower Yarns & Fibers, but I’m not sure when I’ll get to that. Wish you were here! :)
