|Colorways: Daffodilly, Pride, & Saffron Jungle.|
Go ahead, wipe the drool off of your lap/ desk/ arm, I'll wait. Ready? Alright then. This is my purchase from Blue Moon Fiber Arts. They are all Socks that Rock. In order there is Lightweight, Mediumweight, and Heavy weight. The Saffron Jungle isn't for me though...
Those were my only purchases on Saturday, I got them my first time through the Blue Moon Fiber Arts Displays... I did however walk back through four more times on Saturday alone and demonstrated great willpower.
On Sunday I came home with these gems.
|Holiday Yarns: Peach Sherbert- Little Red Bicycle: Beach Glass- Sanguine Gryphon: Sooty Dancer.|
Too much at once? I'll slow down for you then...
This is 'Spark Lace' from Little Red Bicycle. The colorway is "Beach Glass" which reminds me of my best friend who collects Sea Glass. I love this yarn! The Stellina is so subtle that you almost miss it, the yardage is incredible at 870 yds for only $30. I don't like to talk prices, but that's a bargain!
And then there was my purchase from The Sanguine Gryphon. I wasn't going to do it at first, but then it was my last stop on Sunday, I really wanted something to take away from them. I succumbed and bought a skein of 'Bugga' in the colorway "Sooty Dancer". I think I'm going to treat myself with this one, after all the walking I deserve the 20% Cashmere in there!
Now I know what you're thinking already... 6 skeins? From a weekend of yarn shopping? Not so! Sunday morning, my husband accepted my invitation to join me and we even went to Happy Knits in Portland before heading to the Convention Center and I got some lovely things there. My husband, ever the good sport even treated (Thank-You Sweetie!).
So some of you may know Happy Knits as the store that created the Flickr Pool for the Stephen West Mystery KAL that begins in a few hours. So I opted to buy my yarns for it from the source.
I also had to pick up some Madelinetosh, look where I was! So I got the Tosh Lace in 'Tart' (above), and Tosh Sock in 'Vermillion' (below). Maybe I'm going into a red phase?
Now I didn't leave with just my yarn, I left with the knowledge of a knitting group that meets on Tuesdays (!) and a goodie bag!
I still haven't shown you the People I encountered, the other fiber I got, the tools I finally obtained, and that's only some of it! Stay tuned for a LOT more pictures!!
