Coastal Yarn

Last month Josh and I took a trip out to the Oregon coast. We met up with friends who will soon be moving out of state. It was a perfect day for kite flying and for making memories.

Josh found gluten free clam chowder and ordered us take out. It was delicious! While there I visited a local yarn shop. With quarantine I haven’t shopped for fun, let alone for yarn, in months. Coastal Yarns is a lovely store with a fantastic selection of yarn. Masks were worn and everybody was politely social distancing.

Noro released a new yarn! Tsubame is a mix of silk, wool and nylon. There were other luscious yarns but as soon as I saw this new to me Noro I had to have it.

This skein is so beautiful I have it on my nightstand. I’m designing a pattern to show off the yarn and to encapsulate our magical coastal day.
