Maryland Sheep and Wool: Swag!
I didn't really but that much at Maryland Sheep and wool in hindsight. I'm still waiting on a very important check, before I can spend tons on yarn without feeling bad about it.
First and foremost, there was a TON of sock yarn, and while I like knitting socks I have more than enough really good yarn already stashed. I did buy a nice skein of Eidos from The Verdant Gryphon in the Pittaco colorway.
I was hoping to find nice DK/Worsted/Bulky yarns to round out what I had at home. There wasn't much I liked, so after walking the entire fairgrounds, we walked back to the Blue Moon Fiber arts to get the first yarn I saw; Mopsy. Someone I know winces every time I say there's angora in it, but that just makes me love it more :-)
While waiting for Maggie Sansone and Rover Dance, Mike (Julia's Husband) and I were digging through this really well curated antique/vintage booth and he handed me this bag of vintage glitter. We all know how much I love the stuff. I bought it right away and tucked it safely in my bag. That glass jar is amazing, right?
See? I didn't get much. I spent less than $100, can you stand it? I think there may be another skein of Mopsy coming my way in the very near future. I effing adore it.
What's your favorite yarn?
