Hanalei Strings Yarn

 Frolicking in Hanalei
One of my favorite things to do while away is to visit yarn shops.
This lovely yarn was purchased at Hanalei Strings on Kauai. 

This was the most interesting shop selling both ukulele's and yarn, 
complete with a warm and friendly proprietor.
 All things strings!

Oh and I must not forget to mention that Puff the Magic Dragon frolics in Hanalei.
I did not see him, but then again, it was not Autumn...
(I hope your speakers are turned on. )

A scarf might be this yarn's fate. :-)
See Hanalei Strings blog post
with knitted scarf photo from this same yarn here.

Oh, how I dream of owning a yarn and coffee shop one day...

  3. I love turquoise and brown together - it's gorgeous.

    You will serve tea too, won't you? And I'm a sucker for shortbread.
