Wild Purls

Wild Purls in Billings, MT.!

Stopped at this awesome yarn store on the way home last week. I wanted to get some special yarn from MT. to make a remembrance shawl. Found this gorgeous Lorna's Lace Lion and Lamb in the colorway Wild Purls, it is especially dyed just for this store and I'm going to make the Landscape shawl out of it. Also found this beautiful skein of hand painted yarn made in Montana called Mountain Colors in the colorway Yellowstone. Going to make some hand warmers out of it. Then also bought that cute pin that has miniature knitting needles. The store was awesome and the staff super duper friendly. Next time, under better circumstances I hope to be able to spend some more time there. I'm really wanting to cast on for the shawl soon. Had to frog my cowboy hat because it was wayyyyy to big and was on the very last row! Just haven't been in the mood to knit/cro/spin....hopefully it'll come back soon.

That's neat that they have their own colorway. Lion & Lamb is a yarn I've hoped to run across in my travels, but I haven't yet. I'll be curious to hear what you think of it.
