Road Trip! LYS Miami Style Part 1

The knitters/crocheters of Boca Raton are a snazzy bunch.  This weekend Caryn organized a road trip.  Eight of us in two cars with visions of yarn candy dancing in our minds.

First stop: Anneke's Needleworks of Miami Florida.  Tucked away amidst an office park/ warehouse area, Anneke's is a colorful smorgasbord of yarn and needlepoint supplies. The selection is broad and many of the major yarn companies are represented here (Rowan, Debbie Bliss, Lamb's Pride, etc.)  There's three separate rooms with yarn loosely organized by fiber content and brand.  The decor is eclectic Florida.

There's yarn in bins...

And yarn in baskets.

Yarn everywhere.  The only thing missing was the prices.  Since nothing was labeled, all possible purchases had to be run by Anneke herself.  While this system may work for some people, I don't like it.  It makes me feel uncomfortable like when I have to ask the waiter how much something is on the menu.  I just prefer to avoid those kinds of situations.

But Anneke was very gracious and despite being busy, she patiently answered all of our questions.
