Shopping Small With Someone Small

My little man was getting a little restless after three days at the Grandparents. So we loaded up in the car and headed “to town”. Which for those raised in the sticks means driving at least an hour to a moderately large city that has more than a grocery store and antique shop/junk store. Jellybean and I dropped Grandma and Aunt Bar-bar at a Joann’s and spencer and I headed off to shop small at Yarns Sold and Told in Salina Ks.

I have been wanting to find some workhorse solid sock yarns for contrasting bits and bobs. Spence was SO FANTASTIC about shopping with mommy. We held hands and walked the sidewalks and chatted about toddler life. He was amazed by the yarn and fell in love with a shop sample knitted monkey. (Mommy was a softy and let him pick out yarn for mommy to knit a toy monkey. More about that later.)

While I perused sock yarn Jellybean found some sample ribbon scarves and proceeded to play dress up with the shop mirror. He asked one of the proprietors if he “looked pretty” and she just about burst out giggling as she assured him he did. He kept himself busy while I finished my shopping.

He was so amazing that we slid down the street to a local ice cream store and split two scoops of chocolate. It was a perfect mommy and Jellybean date! I’m going to hang on to that memory for awhile ❤️

Happy Knitting!

  2. Yarn’s Sold and Told is one of my favorites! Everyone there was so gracious when I visited & I was so impressed with their selection. You’ve got me itching to cast on the skein of Dream in Color yarn that I came home with…
