Okay, just a few more things I bought, and a confession. I had said before I went that I was going to stick to sweater quantities. No single balls, nothing without a plan. Yeah, well so far, you can see how well that worked out - I'm nothing if not weak!
I did get some more bamboo stretch sock yarn - I adore the pair I've already made in this yarn, so I knew I was heading to Dye Version to get some more. Two skeins, one in Nightingale (the dark blue), and one in Galapagos (the grey/lime combo).
Love them both, and may just be keeping these for myself!
I did actually get one sweater's worth of yarn - pure silk, in three gorgeous colours - to make an as-yet-to-be-determined striped cardigan. Probably contiguous sleeves (maybe raglan), probably v-necked, (but maybe scoopier), probably top buttoned, (but maybe fully buttoned). I'll figure out the details when I get to it...
And of course - alpaca roving. Not for spinning (still not interested in spinning), but for thrummed mittens.
I was showing this stuff to some of our newer Guild members, and then showed them a thrummed mitten, and said I would do a workshop one month on how to do it. Yup, you guessed it - three of them then bought a bag of roving, to make some mittens!
There were a couple of other purchases - they weren't around when I was taking pictures, so I'll have to dig them out to show you - some perfect beads in variegated navy tones for my Tanis laceweight sweater, and a cute little sheepy bag that is the perfect size for my wallet and a small project for use at these shows, so I don't have to lug my purse around!
All in all, a terrific day - not a huge quantity of stuff, but definitely quality, and everything is exactly what I wanted. Can't wait for next year - bigger and better as they move from Bingemans to the Aud in Kitchener - see you there!
