YP Friday, Vacation Pr0n

Earlier this week, KG and I went on a whale watching tour in Lahaina. Afterwards, we stopped by this small needle arts shop that KG had earlier researched and found.



This shop is small and mostly focused on needlework crafts but has a small selecton of yarns including some lucious fibers hand dyed locally and inspired by the beauty of Maui from MauiYarns



Normally, I don't go for yellow (hello Zknitter) but I couldn't pass this skein up.


Pineapple Upsidedown cake:







I also couldn't resist these hand made needles, from Serendipity needles, handmade in Rhode Island.


Here's another of my favorite inspirational foods, mmmmmmmm Maui chips. I've been craving these for years and, while I've been able to find Maui chips, I have never found the same exact brand on the main land:

Sigh...the week has gone by quickly but I've had a wonderful time here in Maui. My next post will be from the Mainland, until then ALOHA!

The color of the yarn is great! Now you can consider it a "complete" vacation now that you've had a yarn purchase! ;)

I am seriously jealous. Hawaii, yarn, handmade needles, and chips. wow. Did the yarn come with a pineapple? I see it peeking around the yarn in the photo.

Dontcha love when you can find locally-dyed yarn while on vacation? I don't usually go for yellow either, but that color is lovely.
