I finished a little knitting too.
Friday night I finished knitting a pair of socks for the Baby Boogie
Skinny Sock – Celebration
The pattern is a made up one with a picot hem and garter heel. They were meant for 8goingon20 but since it’s taken me years to finish them they had to go to Baby Boogie and are yet a tad too big. I think her feet will grow.
I might have also cast on for some other things but I figured I’d talk about the MA sheep and woolcraft show finds.
From Foxhill farms I got 4 fleeces and goodies that are ready to spin:
The black is what she called a “medium grade” cormo but it’s super nice anyway and I got the yellow green to go with it for some patterning around the yoke or hems. The little bag of grey is one of 2 that I got because I needed to spin right away and spin on something that wasn’t mine. I love my fiber but sometimes I just want something else. Ya know, like going out to eat.
Some goodies from Winterberry Farm.
The greyish color is a lovely heather soft blend, the green is Romney, and the white is Karakul. I also managed a couple of fleeces from them as well.
And then because I was lucky enough to have Bosworth across the aisle from me…. I had to get a couple new spindles
One Midi, 2 Mini’s, and 1 Featherweight. I should take a better photo so you can see just how lovely they really are. The Yellow Mini and the Featherweight have projects going. I love new spindles. The bonus was that Jessalu delivered some bags I had ordered and I found that the spindles fit perfectly in there. I’m a ho’ for the box bag.
I also got some great Hello Yarn goodies. But I was too fast at putting those away (didn’t want anyone to walk off with them). The bonus of the weekend was that I got to stay with Adrian and her family. It was fantastic and I really enjoyed myself there. They have a lovely house and Adrian worked her butt off for me. Thank you again lady.
