Actually there was one planned excursion, one must-do on
our my list: Souviner Yarn Shopping. I did quite a bit of research on the yarn shops in San Francisco, signed up for their email announcements, and came up with my must-see shop: ArtFibers. Nothing against any of the other yarn shops, but ArtFibers only has ArtFibers yarn, so I was sure to get something I couldn't get at home. Little did I know that I would fall in love...
... with Kyoto, a silk, mohair, wool blend that is the softest, most luminous yarn I've ever blown my entire honeymoon yarn budget on (once again, totally worth it). Clara does a better job of describing it than I ever could, but this yarn is worth every penny, and not that expensive for what you are getting. I got an entire cone plus 100 grams for under a hundred dollars, enough to make myself the sweater that the lovely woman in the shop custom-designed for me. It actually turned out to be enough for a nice-sized Clapotis,
and two large tit bits,
and I'm not sure what else just yet. I have a nice-sized ball left as well as a bit of blue that I scrounged off the only person on Ravelry willing to trade this lovely stuff.
