Grasshopper drove to NC. She gets car sick and I love being chauffeured around. We arrived a little before noon and immediately hit the arena floor. I was on the hunt. I had a list and I was afraid to deviate even a little from it because if that happened I might go hog wild and end up with something way over my head like those fantastic sheep prints this year. There were a few I was tempted to go home with with. (Their definitely on the list for next year...Next year.)
What was on the list? (Arranged by preference from most to least)
1. a sweater stone
2. Soap (for Christmas gifts)
3. 750 yds of worsted weight for a Lady February
4. 725 yds DK weight for a Gilmore Vest
5. 950 yds of lace weight in black for Myrtle Leaf Shawl
6. 875 yds of lace weight for a dresser scarf
These could of course be rearranged by what was available.
I must have pooped about eight times that day out of excitement. (Sorry if that was TMI. Feel free to pelt me with yarn.) This year I had money to spend and I was helping out my local vendors as well as the economy, if you know what I mean.
Some Ms. Babs worsted weight in 'Bronze.'
Some burgundy Corriedale sportweight at only $8 for 420 yds.
And lastly, Dragon Lace in 'Holly Berry' by Dragonfly Fibers.
Plus, I got a few extras being a big spender.
