Day 3 started out with a drive to Bozeman and a stop at the first yarn shop of the day, Stix. While my family walked around then patiently waited for me, I shopped for yarn and had a really hard time trying to decide what to get. This adorable shop had a great selection of local yarn, including bison. Of course I couldn’t resist, I just had to HAVE it. That was the easy part! The hard part was deciding what locally hand-dyed yarn to get. I can’t show pictures just yet, it will spoil the surprise.
Next stop was Yarn Scout, which was only a few minutes away. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a photo of the outside but this shop was great. I did however manage to take a photo of her massive button collection. Wow!
This shop had tons of yarn but it was easy for me to decide… yarn the owner had just hand-dyed herself and was tagging. Talk about being in heaven, it’s simply gorgeous.
Onto Yellowstone National Park. The drive was simply beautiful. Before hitting the entrance to Yellowstone we made a short stop at Back Porch Quilt & Yarn while the kids shopped at a rock store. I didn’t buy any yarn but I found some fun gadgets and a quilt kit. No, I don’t sew but I will have to learn now…lol.
On the way into Yellowstone we saw a family of adorable deer and beautiful mountains. Pictures and more on that on my next post.
