After some sitting around yesterday morning, my dad gave me a ride over to the Frolic around 12:30 or so – later than I would’ve liked, but still plenty of time to walk around (and around and around). It’s easy to feel overwhelmed, but once I got started, I found it much easier to spend :p
Merino DK in a positively luminous chocolate brown, from The Black Lamb.
Also from The Black Lamb, some mixed batts. I love her batts!
From In the Loop, Fyberspates BFL/silk blend. Dude, this yarn is the softest. yarn. ever.
Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in Douglas Fir for the Butterscotch Cardigan from the current Interweave Crochet (yep, crochet!), from Red Bird Knits.
And finally, some awesome Japanese pattern books from the Fiddlesticks/Needle Arts Bookshop booth. Seriously, they are awesome. I want the book with Am Kamin in it, but SOMEone picked it up first! ;)
Obviously I picked up a LOT of yarn (a sweater’s worth of each), but I still wanted more! This olive green Koigu Mori is still on my mind, as is some Indigo Moon sock yarn. Ah, well. There’ll always be more yarn.
After the Frolic was over, the lettuce knit crew packed up the car in record time and headed back down to the store for Amy and Jillian’s book launch. The cupcakes were fab, the sushi was yummy, and the company was awesome. Unfortunately I came down with an acute case of camnesia for the entire day, but I’m sure there’ll be photos floating around out there. And I did indeed get a ride home with the fabulous Rachel H.
All in all, a fantastic day. Now that I’ve had my break, it’s back to work for me!
