It's a Different Country, Eh? (Part II)
(Mostly crochet content!)
While roaming the halls at Yaohan Centre in Richmond, B.C. I was delighted to find (gasp) a CRAFT STORE!
Look what was in the window! JOY!
Of course, THIS was there, too...
To my dismay, the shop was closed; however, by the time we came out of the shop across the hall, the store had opened. With 40% off yarn racks in front, no less! The shopkeeper was less than thrilled with the idea of picture-taking, but I convinced her to let me take a few. These yarns are almost all Japanese and Italian. Most I'd never seen before. Most were over $12/Cdn a skein! I apologize for the blurries:
Of course I was already on cloud nine, but LOOK what I found, Amigurumi sisters!
This, of course, I purchased, and there were several more books there, which the shop keeper strictly forbade me from photographing. Each were $25 - 40 Cdn, and I definitely recognized at least two of them. I haven't made anything from them yet, but I can't wait!
Of course I couldn't leave without buying SOME yarn:
And, I found this neat little paper Hello Kitty kit for Rebecca's birthday:
While on the subject of Amigurumi, check out these cool Pooh characters I found at a neighboring store:
Oh - I almost forgot! I found some more of my own Engrish.
