A few of my favorite things!

I'm visiting family in KC this week, so today's post will be a little different than the usual "anything goes" blogs I typically share with you - below is just a short list of fun fibery things that have been rocking my post-TNNA world! 

1. Yarnover Truck - How much do I wish we had a yarn truck here in Chicago?! These clever folks just won the 2013 Business Innovation Award at TNNA, and rightfully so! They even have exclusive colorways and patterns from folks like Anzula and FickleKnitter. I never thought I'd say it (what with the lack of sweater weather and all), but knitters in Southern California sure are lucky!

2. KnitCrate subscription service: I met these folks at TNNA and they are super-awesome. Ever since then, I have been wanting to sign up for their sock yarn subscription, even though I am usually not into spending my hard-earned money on yarn I can't pick out myself. However, after getting to know the KnitCrate philosophy, I have total faith that each shipment would contain awesome stuff that I would love. It also might be a good way to diversify my very monochromatic sock yarn stash!

3. My fiber friend LaurenS just opened an etsy shop filled with vintage buttons and her own handmade orifice threaders for your spinning wheel - click here to check it out! I've been using mine with my Victoria wheel - it's really easy to tuck in your purse or bag while spinning on-the-go!

I'll be back from my vacation tomorrow (yes, Tyler and I will be spending our 8th wedding anniversary on the train!), and everything should be back to 'normal' just in time for WIP Wednesday!
