I told you I wasn't done with Sheep and Wool! I have lots more to share. First up the goodies!! I was a very lucky shopper this year - I found everything on my list (and several items not on my list!).
My goals were to buy enough roving to spin a sweater - check
The first one is from Serendipity Farm and Studio and I have to give a big thank you to Amber for showing me the roving she got from there! It was exactly what I wanted - a nice natural colored roving that could be spun up into the bottom of another colored yoke sweater.
Which is where the colored roving comes into play. I plan to design my own fair isle yoke using these awesome colors. I am already spinning with ideas! (no pun intended!)
I also wanted to get some yarn for some sweaters. I ended up with enough yarn for 2!
This gorgeous orange tweed is Peace Fleece - I just had to have it!
If it tells you anything - Coleen and Sarah bought a sweaters worth too!!!
One day it will be a Sunrise Circle Jacket.
The second sweater purchase was from Fiber Co - I got some gorgeous cranberry colored Organik yarn. This was definitely the deal of the day! Only $4.95 a skein! I got 12 :)
I think it may be another colored yoke sweater - maybe a cardigan this time though. I'm addicted to yoked sweaters I tell you!!
Anyway - those were the big purchases. I did get some other little things... mostly all from the Cloverhill booth. Come on! I had first dibs! It would have been wrong to waste that opportunity right?
From the top - I got a spindle for my friend Heidi who could make it down this year. It's a hand carved spindle by Michael Sturtevant. I also got Heidi some roving - but something has to be a surprise!
Next is Little Traveler by Sanguine Griffin, A Monster hat by Jacey of Insubordinate, Cyberfiber roving, Dragonfly Fiber roving, Handmaiden Sea Silk, a Loop batt, and Peppercorn sock yarn by Spritely Goods.
Here we are leaving with our many purchases...
I love everything I got and I can't wait to start knitting! It's been very hard to keep working on my most recent project - the Charlotte's Web shawl. I'm almost done though and then I can cast on for something new! The only question is where do I start!
