Tuesday after going into Nell Hill's for quite a while, I also wanted to go into Urban Arts and Crafts. I had formerly been in the store when it was located close to the Kansas City, Missouri Farmer's Market area. I was disappointed when I thought it had gone out of business. Somehow I found out that it had just moved locations. I had totally forgotten about it until I was searching for yarn shops in the GASP, yellow pages. Not, yellowpages.com, don't you know, the real, hold-in-your-hand, yellow pages. I was so excited to have discovered this BEFORE heading up there. How often does that happen? Never. It's across the parking lot from Nell Hill's! It is a hip and cool combination of yarn, fabric, scrapbooking, jewelry, you-name-it craft store. I bought the fabrics from Anna Marie Horner to make this beautiful scarf. These fabrics are gorgeous and very light and drapey. Okay, so that's not a real word, but you get what I mean. Check here for Urban's website and here for their free scarf pattern.
Okay, so this should've been cropped.
I bought the fabric, some way cool knitting needles and this fun Amy Butler pattern for my daughter's new house. On Thursday, while at Sarah's Fabrics, I bought her fabrics for it by Heather Bailey.
Wednesday I went into another local yarn store called Knit Wit. They have beautiful yarns and a helpful staff. I came away with more yarn and a fun knitting book, Luxury Yarn One-Skein Wonders: 101 Small Indulgences.
