My visit to Tempe Yarn & Fiber

I’m a lucky knitter. On this past Boxing Day, I visited Tempe Yarn and Fiber  with a long-time excellent friend who has made her home in Arizona these past 20-some years. I had the pleasure of working at my Local Yarn Store several years back; while that store remains my very favorite, I can say that Tempe Yarn and Fiber is my 2nd favorite LYS. The staff were friendly, the selection excellent (I was shopping for knitting supplies, but there was stuff for crocheters, spinners, weavers, and felt makers, too!), and the store itself sunny and inviting. Ok, maybe that last part is because it was Arizona and I was starved for sunshine after a very gray December here at home. If you are in the Phoenix area, I definitely recommend you give this store a visit!

I  bought a multi-colored skein of Manos and a purple skein of Cascade 220, plus a 40 inch circular needle. I am making a pair of mittens with the Magic Loop method of circular knitting, which works great for bus knitting and not losing a needle.
