I made it out to Briggs and Little on Friday afternoon, to exchange some yarn. I had 12 leftover skeins, none of them the same colour. Briggs and Little lets you exchange them, as long as the tags are still one. It was a nice sunny drive.
If you are ever in the neighbourhood, it is worth it to go. The people working there are so nice, helpful and down to earth. I love the seconds bin (2$ a skein!!)
I know I am very late this February Lady Sweater party, but I’ve always wanted to make one with Briggs and Little Heritage in a pale grey. That will probably be a fall project.
