The Yarn Barn in Lawrence was my destination yesterday. It's a rare opportunity I get to go there, but always delightful. It's about the most full-scale yarn shop I've ever seen, I mean, the real works, spinning, weaving, felting, makes me feel humble since I can only do garter or stockinette stitch on very simple projects.
(Well, my aunt, a master knitter, once made me do a sweater with cables, which I detested and have never done again.)
I was searching for Kansas yarn, and learned that there is no Kansas yarn produced in great quantities. The closest is the Brown Sheep yarn company in Mitchell, NE.
