Finger Lakes Fibers, the second

Went down to Watkins again, finally went into the yarn store there.
Schaefer Yarns, Fleece Artist, Lorna’s Laces, Lopi, Misti Alpaca, some handpainted BFL… everything. I fondled a lot of yarn. I bought some – two 50g balls of Misti Alpaca laceweight in white, for another, bigger Swallowtail Shawl. And one skein of Schaefer fingering weight, custom dyed in a colorway called “Finger Lakes” – how cool is that?!
Oh and also a US4/3.5mm bamboo circ, cause I didn’t bring one over here. I already started the swallowtail, but I didn’t get very far, still on the setup for the budding lace pattern. Spent almost 50 bucks there. Oh god. But, after all, that’s what I wanted to splurge on, and I’m definitely checking the stores in Ithaca, too.
But oh, the Misti Alpaca?? Heaven, in a ball of yarn. Oh, it’s so light and fuzzy and soft and alpacay and… mmmh. And the color of the Finger Lakes yarn, deep blues and greens… oh, it’s good to have a big yarn budget. That’s definitely souvenir yarn.
