Yarn always makes the best souvenir, in my opinion. On our trip to Utah I seemed to acquire more than usual. However, each skein of yarn was purchased with a specific project in mind.
My only purchase at Three Wishes was cotton chenille for washcloths. This was on my list of yarns to look for and I was happy to find some in the sale bin.
At The Wool Cabin I was tempted by Alpaca Sox which will become a pair of luxurious socks for me.
And, a hank of Spunky Eclectic Super Nova: a superwash Merino sport weight. It can be used for socks, but I think I'll make up the store's shawl pattern that was free with the yarn. This pretty color is called Utah Sunrise.
I walked out of the Needlepoint Joint with several hanks of Inca Alpaca for a hat and scarf that were in the shop. Those store samples really do help to sell the yarn.
At each shop I asked about Peace Fleece. No one had any. Evidently it's too new or not widely distributed. Most shop owners had never heard of it, though it seems to be very popular in the knit-blogging community. I'll order some online when the time is right, but for now I have plenty of new yarn to keep me busy.
