Here's the view from the back side of my sort of LYS--Alamitos Bay Yarn Company:
This photo is part of my loot--the rest is a secret:
That's a skein of Encore for a gift hat, 4 skeins of Brown Sheep Worsted for a cat mat thingy, bamboo needles, Addi Natura circular needle and Knits From the Heart by Kristin Spurkland. The cat mat pattern is in this book, along with some cute socks and other goodies.
It really was a fun shopping expedition--I even found two Christmas gifts at another stop.
