Knitting Store Excursions

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,, 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

Well, there is more to share, but I feel like this post is getting too long.  So, come back tomorrow for the second installment of Knitting Store Excursions.  I know, only some of you get this.  But, yarns are pretty!  I have more yarn to share and another pattern or two.
