My First Yarn Shop Hop

I’m finally attending my first yarny event! The Central Kansas Yarn Hop is in less than two weeks. I’ve started by making a budget and pulling projects requirements for which I need yarn.

  • Sweater/vest quantity for Jellybean in Royal Blue or Teal
  • Sport weight sock yarn in hubby friendly colors 
  • Fingering weight sock yarn for me 😄 (possibly a merino/cashmere/nylon combo)
  • Wild card for something special for yours truly

I’ve also started a game plan and travel route for hitting five of the 10 shops. The only thing I don’t know if I’m flying solo or or if I can find a fiber friend to go with. I’ve put out feelers.

I’m terribly excited for my first “festival” as it’s the closest I’m going to get to a Rhinebeck or Stitches for the foreseeable future. What is your favorite yarn event?

  1. How interesting! I have never heard of such an event, but it sounds like fun. Good luck and enjoy! (PS – If I lived in Kansas not NJ I would go with you. Just an FYI! )
