Oklahoma Loot

Q: What's a girl to do who's been working way too many hours and running short on knitting projects?
A: Vacation day and a road trip for yarn!!

I called up my KIP friend, Laurie, grabbed a rental car and we made our way south to Oklahoma City. Our first stop took us to a spinning shop, Tres Hermanas in Ponca City. Check out the beautiful spinning wheel and needle felted rocking horse that was intricately made by the shop owner.

From there we traveled to Guthrie for antique shops and a somewhat expensive stop at Sealed with a Kiss where I purchased a shrug kit. My favorite shop turned out to be the very hip and retro yarn shop, Happy Cat, close to the OU campus in Norman. It was so colorful with ecclectic touches filling the spaces between all the fabulous yarns.

By this time, we started running out of time and made a quick stop at The Gourmet Yarn Co. in Oklahoma City. Right around the corner we finished our day with a frozen margarita on Lake Hefner.

It was a GREAT day and boy am I worn out!!
