Happy happy, joy joy. A sea of fibery goodness awaited us at the Spinners Flock Fleece Fair. More fiber than any one person could ever hope to use in their lifetime. Thank goodness, I only left with a bit of roving and a couple of skeins of yarn.
A bright shade of lime in a wool/mohair blend, spun by Haltwhistle Fibres from Liz Cowdery fibers. Odd thing is, I think I have some of this roving!
Kate was auditioning these hanks of handspun but knowing her preferred colors, was there any real doubt they'd go home with her:
I had four other BSKG members in my car and we stopped at several more places after the Fleece Fair: lunch in Northville, not memorable, Center Street Knits, and Knitting on the Fringe, which had recently moved to their new location. Loved both shops for different reasons: great ambiance and yarn at Center Street Knits; lots of yarn, patterns, and buttons to pick from at Knitting on the Fringe.
I have to say I'm whipped from all the driving and the yarn fumes. I might think about casting on a new scarf tonight but then again, I just might put my jammies on and call it a day!
