I learned two things today:
1. I am powerless over yarn (well OK, I knew that one already), and
2. Purple and teal green have a very strong hold on my yarn-buying.
From the Kitchener-Waterloo Knitter’s Fair, yea verily, I returned with:
Wellington Fibres mohair/wool for some beautiful lace (they were new to me, and I think I will make them a permanent stop at my next such Ontario knitting event);
Indigo Moon and more Malabrigo Sock from The Purple Purl (It was on sale, ON SALE I tells ya);
A 750-yd and 380-yd skein of hand-dyed fingering weight from The Sweet Sheep. Michelle has quite brilliantly started doing up her fingering-weight yarn in long 750-800 yd skeins so that you can get a big shawl out of only one skein, and never need to change a ball or weave in ends. I am looking forward to casting on with that one soon.
I’ll be sure to hop on and post more fun pictures from the day later on in the weekend – tonight I’m going to hunker down under our rainy hurricane remnants (stay dry, those of you in its path!), and have some knitting play time with the sis. Happy Saturday!
