Yarn Hop (Day 1)

There are 12 yarn shops participating in this year's Central Kansas Yarn Hop. I picked up my friend Karen in Canton and we started our hop up north in Wamego where I found inspiration in a sample Tea Leaves Cardigan (I really want to make this). In Manhattan at Wildflower Knits I purchased yarn to make the shop sample kimono (comfy for wearing around the house). Some yarn to make another moebius cowl in Abilene, Knitpicks #2 needles in McPherson, clog sock pattern in Lindsborg and striping baby cardigan yarn in El Dorado. At 480 miles we called it a day and I still have 4 more shops yet to make it to.
