DIY Yarn Store

I am excited to say I've found my yarn for the Garden Party Wrap CAL --- I made it myself! Last night, I found a new LYS on Ravelry called Yarnia in SE Portland, OR (you must read their "About the Store" info on their site). It's a do-it-yourself yarn store; the only one in the northwest, maybe even this country! At this store, the owner has a special machine that combines and winds fibers of your choice into your unique skein of yarn. Here's a picture of my skein that I created on my lunch hour. It is hot pink bamboo with a thin strand of orange mohair along with a white silk-blend filament. It's a bit heavier than a fingerweight so I'll need to swatch and probably skip a repeat or two, but I'm so excited!
