I usually bring cash only to the fair, so that I can’t spend more than a fixed amount. I did not take that precaution this year, and here is the guilty result….
A couple skeins of Georgian Bay Fibres “Bayfield Bulky”. I bought these to make a colourwork jacket, to use up the rest of my one-of-a-kind “Sage” colourway, in the same base. Buy 3 skeins to use up 2? That works… right? 😉
A skein of Purl Diving merino laceweight. This one’s for my mom, because she missed the fair:( This is Katherine Matthews new yarn, and the colours are spectacular!
2 skeins of Zen Yarn Garden cashmere, from Grey Heron Yarns. This is about to become a soft, warm, reversible hat. Design to come.
A sweater quantity of this Mineville Wool Project Aran yarn, from Linda’s Craftique. I bought some Mineville Wool Project at last year’s fair and knit it up within the year. I wear that sweater all the time, so that was enough incentive for me to buy more.
My personal favourite acquisition of the day is…. Yarn Indulgences sport weight BFL in a smokey blue-grey. This one is next on the To-design list. Watch for the sweater to come!
And hey! I just noticed that all this yarn is Canadian dyed!
Right here is a gratuitous shot of my spoils of the fair….silk, hand-woven scarf included. More on that, at a later date.
