I finally got a chance to take some pictures of my Maryland Sheep and Wool loot!!
I got a sweater's worth of yarn from Peace Fleece!
Oh how I love this color...
I already did up a swatch.
I'm thinking of doing this sweater: Forestry (Old Penny Cardigan) I never would have thought about this pattern based on the picture in the magazine - but there are some great ones on ravelry.
The only other yarn I got was this beautiful sock yarn from Three Irish Girls:
I'm knitting the Mad Color Weave socks with it and I love how it's coming out so far.
This was definitely a year for roving and fiber.
I got this gorgeous assortment of fiber and I can't wait to spin it up.
There is some Woolarina, Grafton Fibers and Cloverhill in there from the cloverhill booth, a giant ball of Spinner's Hill roving and some Barletyarns roving in there.
Here are some closeups:
I also got some goodies from Sarah! She not only made me that gorgeous skirt in yesterday's post - she also sewed this cute pin cushion!
AND she let me borrow her hand carders and combs to try!
I can't wait to wash some fleece and give these a whirl.
In non fibery purchases - I bought Karida's new book and a lovely walnut niddy noddy:
And I also got this antique bobbin:
I plan to make a lamp out of it.
Stay tuned for more in progres pics!
