I went to Wisconsin with a bunch of friends last month. You may have read about our adventures on other blogs. It was a really great time.
I was fairly restrained in my purchases. The only yarn I purchased was for the upcoming Stephen West KAL and for a Holiday Doodle KAL that takes place in November. And some yarn for a hat, but hat yarn doesn’t really count, does it? The purple skein is a gift from Jess that was dyed by Alissa. Pretty cool, right?
I was less restrained when it came to fiber. I picked up two braids from Honeygold Acres, Some big balls from a farm in Wisconsin, a taster of a Yak blend, a sparkly bat, a gradient I didn’t remember until I saw this picture, and the colorway for the show. Marilee brought me some qiviat and Liz brought me some camel silk. My friends are awesome.
I didn’t take many pictures. That has nothing to do with sharing a margarita flight with Marilee. That was just good fun.
Now it is back to my real life where I need to knit and spin up all of the goodies I bought this year. Later this week I’ll update you on my progress on last year’s purchases.
