Ah, but wouldn't you have to come to Webs to get Kangaroo Dyer? Nice stuff, good times!

I couldn't agree more about the real joy of a fiber festival. Glad you had such a fun time!

What fun!..and some lovely purchases.
We have our local Fiber Festival this weekend which I've been involved with the planning etc..and it sounds like the weather Goddess is going to finally smile on us which will be especially nice because it will be indoor/outdoor with some animals.

You will love the Kangaroo Dyer yarn! I just finished a lace scarf from some of her kid mohair/silk yarn - scrumptious! Plus, and you'll like this, Gail Callahan is the dyer and one of the absolute nicest people you'll ever meet. Just lovely. Go to her etsy shop (user name kangaroodyer) and buy more of her yarn - it's all good stuff!

So great for me to see Anne and Kim in the photo! Cracks me up to see Anne's tablecloths so predictably purple-colored. :D

I swooned over the handspun by Spinderella. Unbelievably gorgeous.

What lovely "prizes". You have such wonderful fiber artists in the West. I'm so glad your weekend and the fest was fun and productive. As for the wrong turn, good thing you weren't with me. We'd have ended up in Michigan:)

Ahem. I think it best not to ask what is going on in that picture.

And I think I need to wear more makeup in public. Sheesh. Death warmed over.

Totally agree. Would love to get to an event like that but worried of the impact on my wallet.

Love the charcoal, can't wait to see what pattern you come up with.

It looks like you hit the jackpot! :)

No truer words - looks like a wonderful time!

That gorgeous charcoal yarn would be great for one of the cardigans in A Fine Fleece...just saying. Good haul for a small festival! I'm going to revisit the Massachusetts Sheep and Woolcraft fair this weekend but don't intend to buy a thing. Yeah. Right.

Glad to see you're not a strict rule keeper when it comes to fiber. Beautiful fiber purchases!

What fun! (I recently broke the same rule for some laceweight that was a steal.... any suggestions on good patterns for variegated pink yarn?)

We have Sedalia this weekend! I can't wait - and I'm going with my newest convert to the knitting obsession - my DD!!!
We have hope that the weekend will go well...
What a great time you had!

So true, so true - fiber folks are the best!

It looks like a great time! I would be jealous, but how can I be? We have no shortage of wonderful festivals here in the Northeast!

I am excited to see the sweater you plan--that yarn is lovely!

Hear, hear! (I almost wrote, "Hear, har!" I'm sure there was plenty of "har" so it could work.)
; )

What lovely fibers and yarn. Hmm, I see some spinning in your future :-) (and a distinct absence of sock yarn!- giggles)

Great choices, Margene. You have a wonderful eye. I tend to be attracted to yarn colors that won't necessarily make garments that I would love to wear. I'm learning.

Well done! :-) I'm so glad you broke down and bought the gorgeous laceweight. I can't wait to see what you'll do with it! :-)

You got some great stuff!

It looks like you had a fun time with the Utah girls! Beautiful fibers!

I do wish I hadn't been so strong at Notlwonk Farms table. They are such lovely yarn! And Kangaroo Dyer is a great find! Can't wait to see masterpiece you knit it into.
