The Great Jimmy Beans Pilgrimage.

Warning: massive amounts of photos ahead.

Let's skip over all the unimportant details about how we got to Reno, and get straight to what you're all dying to hear about, yes?

When we first went into Jimmy Beans, I was surprised and a little disappointed. It looked... just like your typical LYS.

But do you see that set of double doors hiding behind that rack of yarn? Beyond those doors was... the warehouse.

We were saved from sheer overwhelmed confusion by a gentleman named Gus, who gave us a lovely tour of the warehouse.

Then I... sort of went wild looking at all the yarns.

Tune in next time to see what I bought, and the rest of the Reno pictures!

    1. It was very amazing indeed - I heartily recommend the experience, should your family ever happen to have a reason to take another road trip. :D

    1. I don't know whether it's bigger than Webs. Despite living in Massachusetts for five years, the last two of which were as a knitter, I never made it there. Kicking myself heartily for that! I've resolved to go there the next time I'm in the area again.

    1. I think every knitter and crocheter should be encouraged to take such a pilgrimage. :D

  4. Hmmm..the warning label really has no affect when the title says Jimmy Beans. It is kind of like saying warning..lots of pictures of a hot guy. :)
    Amazing pictures. I would like to live there.

    1. I think I even prefer looking at pictures of lots of yarn to looking at pictures of hot guys! For one, my boyfriend is more understanding of it ;)

    1. I'd actually never shopped there online before, but after getting signed up for their rewards program in the store, I'm pretty hooked!
