I can’t believe it has been two weeks since we went to A Wool Gathering! I’m sorry I didn’t get my recap post up earlier. Life has just really been busy – especially at work. Anyhow, let me tell you…..A Wool Gathering was completely AWESOME! We had so much fun and I bought lots of great yarn too. I decided that I was only going to spend money that I’ve made from making Sleepytime Hats. Thankfully, I’ve sold lots of them so I had lots of money to spend! And boy oh boy did I spend, lol!
I went into the day thinking that I really wanted to find some fun, bright, exciting fingering weight yarn to knit socks with. My first thought is always green, and then jewel tones, and I love those colors but this time around I just wanted something different. We ended up stumbling across two different self striping, rainbow colored, fingering weight hanks!
I also splurged on some 100% Alpaca DK weight yarn! Two different hanks!! They are so soft and cuddly! I hoping to make a blanket out of them. I think I may have some other Alpaca yarn in my stash. If not then I suppose I’ll have to go online shopping!
Finally, we got a few other things. We each got a pair of already made Alpaca socks. They are so soft and warm! Plus I got some pom pom makers, which will make finishing my Sleepytime Hats much easier.
As you can see, we had a really great time. I would highly recommend attending A Wool Gathering next year if you are anywhere near Yellow Springs, Ohio. Or, if you aren’t, then try finding a fiber festival in your area. They are a lot of fun and you’ll be tempted to “feed your stash”.
