"Are We Almost There Yet...?"

How many times have we heard that phrase!  Either saying it as a child ourselves or hearing it on the flip side as a parent!  Trips can be fast paced, fun filled, memory making and sometimes (!) simply a time to slow down and recharge.  Ahhhh....Fall is certainly a time for any knitter/crocheter to feel recharged and ready to start new projects.

Our trip is still in full swing as we head back to the US and a shop that just makes me happy saying the name - "Tickled Pink Knits".  (sighhhhh......).

                                    It looks like shop owner Elena is waiting to greet us!

                                                    What lovliness is inside....


Each of her lovely ready made knits are just knitty perfect!  But for all of us that adore looking at, admiring and oooohhing and aahhhhing over someone's craft....but just can't bring ourselves to buy anything because...well, we want to create it from scratch!  If you're like me then Tickled Pink Knits has a surprise waiting in her tiny shop next door!  Elena also creates and sells a line of patterns from her line of ready made knits at http://www.etsy.com/shop/ateliertpk.  Oh happy day!!

I just love this pattern...a snood...I always wanted a snood!  It sounds so ultra knitworthy!

Or maybe try this one....

and this...

No matter what you choose, ready made or a pattern, I know you will love browsing this shop! 

Sit back, look through some patterns, breathe in that yarny scent we all love in a good fiber shop and I'll come get you when we're ready to make the next stop...
