So. The important stuff – what did I get from the Frolic? Let’s start with the non-yarn..
An awesome silk tote bag from the gals at The Knit Cafe:
Two new shawl/sweater sticks from that dude that carves the Tagua buttons:
From the Black Lamb, a bag of merino/seacell pindrafted roving and a bunch of batts (I love those batts).
Onto yarn, a bag of Estelle 100% silk from RedBirdKnits. I’m thinking just a simple zip cardi. (Look how nice the colour photographs in that bag.)
From Pick Up Sticks, a pair of sock blockers (size medium) and a skein of deepest blue Mini Maiden – 50% wool, 50% silk, 500 m. Maybe a shawl, maybe a top.
From Village Yarns, a skein of Blue Heron Rayon Metallic. It’s 550 yards/8 oz, and I’ve already got a smashing idea (and not-so-smashing sketch) for it!
From Shelridge Farm, a couple skeins of W4 in a chocolate brown, for the treeline stripe cardi from purl bee..
And last but not least, the haul from GoodBuyYarn (they had great stuff this year!): Twilleys Denim Freedom for a skirt, the red is GGH Safari for a tank (I’m thinking the Roundabout one from Knitting Nature). The bling yarn is called Tai, for the hairpin lace skirt. Shouts to Mrs. Peeps for helping with choosing that one.
Whew. Imagine what kind of damage I could’ve done had I the entire day to shop! Have I mentioned lately that I love yarn?
Before I can play, though, those pesky exams. Anyone want to go drinking on Friday night?
