Picture crazy post!
Projects are ready to go!
I love the sight of farm-land and rolling hills.
We had breakfast at Clinton Station Diner.
Oh yes it is a train going right into the diner!
When you go in
you can eat in the car!
We stayed at Best Western Eden Resorts Lancaster
Check out our room.
The housekeeping staff is awesome.
The best part of the room was not the two large rooms with large flat screen TVs or the double sinks or the turn down service with the chocolate coins left on the bed each night.
The best part of the room was the shower!
When you get past all the cornball tourist things
and this sight is no longer a surprise
there are some amazing places for fiber nuts to go.
The Kitchen Kettle Village has some great shops.
I found some beautiful pottery at theVillage Pottery for my daughters.
My new yarn home the
Lancaster Yarn Shop.
The shop is so beautiful I couldn't pick one picture so I am posting all!
I have walked to new yarn shops alone and felt I just wanted to turn around and run out because the people were so cold.
Wendy made me feel at home.
I wish I could have gone to their Thursday night meeting because I'm sure all who go must be friendly folks.
These are yarns by local fiber artists.
I found some great books and amazing yarn!
I hope my First Born will make a shawl for me out of the yarn by
I will make a pair of gloves for her from theWhorled Peace yarn.
The last day I found Labadie Looms.
She has beautiful spinning wheels and looms.
As always I found more great yarn.
Autumn House Farm yarn is so beautiful I can't wait to start a project with it.
The best part of the trip was our visit to Eastland Alpacas.

These sweet animals are so soft and friendly I just wanted to take one home.
The ranch is so beautiful and run in such a loving way. The animals seem to be part of the family. The tour was very informative and even my lupie body could handle it.
This is one of a few llamas they have.
At the store I found this beautiful yarn.
If you are ever in the area make the trip to Eastland Alpacas it is great.
On the road home I finished the gloves I have been working on for months.
