Of course the weather forecast was wrong and it was raining all day. Exactly the wrong type of weather for yarn shopping.
I forgot my camera. Duh. Sarah was gracious enough to snap pics on her phone.
Also, my sister took the wrong train (uptown instead of downtown). In her own words "HOW long have I lived here?!" Seriously. We both just had to laugh.
mayo.cheese.butter. - corn heaven!
Not the most elegant shot but oh man was it delicious!
As if that wasn't enough, I also hoovered a plate of fish tacos.
So being a little bedraggled from the rain and after a little misguidance from Sarah's phone (thanks alot g-gle maps!) we finally made it to PURL SOHO. le sigh.

the best shot Sarah got of the whole store.
cute neckwarmer display by the entrance.
um hello yarn candy!
My "greedy little yarn piggy" photo. (my sister's words).
Huge display of KPPM minis. Koigu Pure Premium. Amazing color and display idea.
A little more yarn fondling.
I was so excited to finally experience in person so many of the yarns I have only heard about and also the projects featured in the blog that were displayed around the store. The people working there were sweet and just as enthusiastic as could be. You could tell they all love their jobs!
It's definitely an overwhelming experience in a great way. I had so much trouble deciding but I was "good", stuck to my budget and here's what I finally decided on:
Thank You Purl Soho! I had the best time!
