Eroica!!


Oops! We did it again!


Another successful (if not wallet-draining) Yarn Tour stormed through Wuerzburg on Saturday.

This is Erica laughing at me because I made fun of her map-turning. Although she totally gets the most-organized award for highlighting the yarn shop streets and actually getting us there.

At the second yarn shop, I only stopped drooling over the multitude of sock yarn when I noticed Erica stopped in front of an shelf unit full of boring old normal yarn. I was about to tell her to open her eyes and smell the Regia when she pointed out that this beautiful 50/50 wool/nylon mix was only 1.50 Euro per 50grams. Well, hello Shirley!! I started to pile it in my basket. Can we say "kids sweaters!???" Then I noticed that the name was Eroica. I don't even want to imagine how they came up with this name, but it was what I called my shopping partner for the rest of the day LOL!

We even found Opal, so I snagged myself some of the tiger yarn. Not sure who's getting them yet, but they would have been handy for chilly trick-or-treating tonight :)

    Thanks so much, I didn't get a chance to check back here, in the rush of departure, but DID end up in Wurzburg for a couple days before xmas. Found Wolle Rodel, by accident, walking back from the train station, and had located Tolle Wolle from the woolworks.org website. Lovely sock yarn from both, of course, as a souvenir of the trip.
