First I want to thank everyone that came out, said hi, stopped in ntroduced themselves, chatted with me and bought goodies. You all are awesome and the reason I keep doing these shows. It’s always great to meet all the people that I “meet” online. It’s great to put a face to the name on the order or to the Ravelry name. Thanks for making my weekend special.
I didn’t get much chance to get out of the booth. But I did manage to come away with a little bit of loot.
I picked up a couple more Bosworth spindles.
Sheila held out a Tulipwood for me. I’m a sucker for tulipwood and pretty burls.
It came in a little heavy at 24 grams. I had hoped that it would be the pair for the Amboyna I got a couple weekends ago. I guess that just means I’ll have to get more.
This is Tasmanian Rose Myrtle Midi to match the other two 22 gram spindles I have. I decided I wanted to do a three ply so I had to have a 3rd. It’s great that they all match so well. They’re all in the rose range yet all slightly different. I love them.
And I of course had to have new fiber projects.
From Enchanted Knoll I had to go to Massachusetts to buy fiber from another Mainer. How silly am I? Irresistable stuff is what it is.
2 Vardo Batts
3 Chasing Rainbow Batts
Right next to me was the Gurdy Woolen Mill I got to play with some of the fibers on Saturday as the show was winding down (had to test the new spindles) so I knew I had to go home with some.
It’s a tweedy blend. It will be an obnoxious orange squishy sweater.
All day Saturday I kept seeing bags, BIG bags, from Spinner’s Hill. I just had to have some.
I’m thinking shawl.
I can’t wait to get playing with some of my new goodies. After catching up on some swatching today, I think I’m going to play.
