YarnShopHopHaul

If I promise you pretty pictures of yarn, will you promise not to judge that it’s taken me three months to photograph and write this post? Yes? Well then I’d like to present:

My haul from the 2016 Minnesota Yarn Shop Hop!

This year’s theme was literature. Each shop had a special event-only yarn and pattern based on a book. I did not purchase most of the special yarns as some of them were out (they disappeared quickly!) and some were simply not yarns I was interested in.
