Here's my souvenir from a yarn shop I just discovered in Burlington called Needleworks. They have some good basics, some novelties, but mostly I noticed they had lots of needles, gadgets, and books. They also had a couple of skeins of Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn. I got a purple hank, breaking a trend of buying mainly variegated or self-striping sock yarns. With a solid color, maybe I can try a stitch pattern. The photo was even worse that the one of the gauge checker, so I didn't include it.
This gauge checker is brass, and it's cuter than the regular ones I have already. It's very hard to resist toys.
