San Francisco and Fibre Stop 4 – ImagiknitBy
San Francisco is very awesome. We were sorry that we only had one day to explore it – and we decided (we’re not sorry about this bit) to leave the big cameras checked at the hotel rather than carry them with us.
I couldn’t resist having a bit of fun with the hills. Everything we wanted to see felt like it was all uphill, both ways.
We spent part of the morning on a walk though (up?) Chinatown.
These shots are so cheesy, but I get a kick out of them every time.
The houses are the prettiest I’ve ever seen. I love them even more than I love jellybean homes in St John’s, and that’s saying something!
Finally, we achieved the final stop on the fibre tour – Imagiknit. Holy selection, and it’s all good.
I had a really tough time narrowing it down, but ended up settling on 100% tencel, hand dyed. This is where I got the weft for my latest palindrome scarf. The tencel adds strength and shine, but still has fabulous drape.
If you look closely, you can see a tired Tito in the ‘man check’ area ;)
We loved San Francisco so much that we’re planning a return trip, just to spend a few more days in the city. It was a great place to unwind from our road trip!
And you have to at least go to Alcatraz! Not the prettiest of places – but what an experience!
Love the yarn store! I’d be drooling all over that place too!
I love that yarn shop! And ‘man check’ areas are such a good idea!
That’s one of the yarn stores I have always wanted to visit. Thanks for sharing a few photos…looks awesome.
I’m dying over those houses!!!!! The architecture is amazing! :) And that yarn heaven really surprised me, when I scrolled down! lol Jealous! San Fran is on my list of places to visit, so I’ll have to check out that shop, and drop my fiancé off at the “man check!” :D
I know, right? The houses, the crazy streets, the YARN. How could we not love that city? Can’t wait to go back!
