This past weekend was the Fiber Fest. I've been looking forward to it for about 11 months - ha! Last year's event was just so amazing - the yarns were breathtaking!
When planning for this year's fest, I perused the list of vendors with growing alarm - two of my favorites from last year were not on the list! I was very sad. But alas, I managed to find so much more than I thought and didn't miss the ones who were not there (I'll be ordering more of theirs online!).
Some of my new finds and favorites from this year:
-Wolle's Yarn Creations, sold by a very nice German lady. The subdued gardient colors took my breath away. I bought some!
-Must Stash had the best supply of self-striping yarn this year.....and it was hard to choose just one! But I managed to find a brown and pink combo that will knit up so nicely! My favorite named yarn in her stall: Tarts and Vicars. Ha!
-Woolfolk was nestled into a corner in Hill Country Weavers' stall and, oh my gosh! I've never felt such yummy wool in all my life. I couldn't even figure out what to buy so I'll have to some homework and order some online. Just decadent!
-Gynx Yarn is still one of my favorites and I love perusing (and touching!) their stuff. I have two skeins stashed away so I didn't buy any.....but it was hard not to.
